Finally Heading Home

Our Powell Lake float cabin home.

Last Wednesday Wayne and I drove to the Peace Arch border crossing in Blaine, WA. Most Canadian COVID-19 border restrictions have been lifted for vaccinated travelers. The online ArriveCAN app is still needed. 

Rules are in flux, so check before you go with the Canadian Border Service Agency and US Customs and Border Protection.

We timed our border arrival to catch the first of two BC Ferries needed to get to Powell River. To ensure we made our connection at the second ferry, we had a reservation.

Arriving at Saltery Bay means we're almost back to Powell River.

There's no quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated. Because of the relaxed rules, we headed home early after our Arizona Snowbird RV Adventure. After a few days in town to take care of business, we got in our Hewescraft and headed up Powell Lake to our float cabin home.

Heading to First Narrows with Hole in the Wall beyond.

Here's our cabin and the view from our front porch. Purchasing our unique off-the-grid home in 2001 was the best choice we've ever made.

Here's the cabin's interior. It's 500 square feet with a sleeping loft. We have a woodstove for heat, propane appliances and a hand water pump in the kitchen, and a bathroom with a composting toilet.

Here's a video created by Kirsten Dickson at Faircompanies featuring our float cabin home.

 Travel is fun, but here's no place like home!

Living through the COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on everyone worldwide. Wayne and I hope you and your family are starting to come out the other side in a safe manner. -- Margy

  1. Welcome home, Margy. I was just talking about you yesterday in regards to ATV trails.

    1. It is great to get back. Good to hear from you.

  2. Welcome home. Enjoy settling into your beautiful float home once again.

    1. It's like we never were away. When we close up we don't remove things, we just put them to bed to wait for our return. - Margy
