Glassy Views

I live in a floating cabin on Powell Lake in coastal British Columbia. Powell Lake has many moods. If a storm is coming, the wind can whip up to over 100 kph and the lake can churn up waves in excess of one metre. Our cabin is in one of the most protected bays called Hole in the Wall. Massive Goat Island and our high rock walls keep our area calmer than most. Some days the water turns to "glass" and reflects the surrounding trees and peaks like a mirror.

Our cabin has sliding glass doors. My husband Wayne calls the front one our wide screen TV with ever-changing programming. In fall we have red and gold maples, in winter snow, in summer it's kids and adults skiing, tubing or just heading to their cabins for the vacation of a lifetime. All year long we have logging boats and tugs plying their way up and down the lake with an odd assortment of equipment logs.

The best glass is in the window in our loft. When I wake up each morning I get a spectacular view of Goat Island and the changing seasons.

I hope you enjoyed a little different view of and through glass. -- Margy
