Back Up the Lake

Yea!!! After about two months away we are finally going back up the lake. I'm so excited! For the first time we became Canadian Snowbirds and headed to Arizona for some winter sun. You can read all about it on my sister blog, Margy Meanders.

I finished the time up with a bit of surgery and recovery at our Bellingham condo in the States. Now we get to go home!

I want to see what has happened in my absence. Did my daffodils bloom and herbs survive the winter? How is my composting experiment in plastic barrels doing? Did my potatoes in storage and canning jars in the pantry escape freezing during the cold spells. And did my transplanted blueberries get new growth?


Has there been any wind or snow damage? What about the lake level? We'll soon know the answers to all of our questions.


Why do we love it so much? It's the best place on earth to live. Besides reading my blog, you can discover more about float cabin living at our YouTube Channel and in Wayne's Coastal BC Stories books. The first, Up the Lake, is available for free as an e-book at Amazon and most online booksellers. Chapter 2, "Boats and Planes," tells about how we discovered Powell River and found the home of our dreams floating on a lake.



Watch for lots of new stories after we get home! -- Margy

    1. It sure will. We will have to wait until late June to go swimming though, the water from snow melt keeps it very cold this time of year. - Margy

  7. Margy - there's nothing like going home after an extended absence! We look forward to experiencing your return with you. I have started looking back at last year's posts to remind myself what I can expect and when, now that it looks like Spring is on her way. For example, it was about this time that a black bear started emerging from hibernation in a sycamore tree in Glacier National Park. So much to look forward to! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday, my friend!

  8. Welcome home Margy! That first shot of your home and surroundings is breath-taking. I do understand why you love it, having been blessed with 3 months on Vancouver Island again - my "home from home" (only returned to Australia 2 weeks ago). It is indeed a piece of Heaven. Enjoy settling back and trust the operation/recuperation went well.

    1. Powell Lake is enduring, it was formed when ice age glaciers retreated. The cabin is a bit more fragile, but in a pretty protected spot. - Margy

    1. We did enjoy our rental RV trip to Arizona. I'm sure there will be more winter trips south in the future. But yes, it is great to come home. - Margy
