"Up the Lake" Book Launch Party

My husband Wayne loves our float cabin on Powell Lake in Coastal BC so much that he wrote Up the Lake to share experiences we've had in this unique environment. When we launched the book last July we had a "party" at our cabin.

We invited our neighbors and friends from town. The PEAK newspaper staff even brought a large houseboat to the festivities.

We even had a celebrity guest. He volunteered to take care of the brew bucket. Funny thing, the Kokanees seemed to disappear faster than the pop when he was on the job. Very strange!

Hope you had fun at our book launch party.

    Definitely looks like a fun party! Your neighbors are all lucky ducks. :)

  3. Those are some great photos. Here in the Florida panhandle you run across a few floating cabins along the Chattahoochee and Ocholockonee rivers but not often. I did take a picture of a small floating cabin being moved upriver on the Apalachicola river a year ago and it can be seen at Panoramio and the URL is

  14. Not sure about your question. To get to Powell River from Victoria you need to drive north to Comox and take a ferry across the Strait to Powell River. If you have a different question you can email me through the link in my profile. I will be in town for a few more hours. - Margy
