It's Spring... my sister and I went on a spring mini-break to her husband's family cabin on an island they own off the coast of West Vancouver...

...this cabin was built by his great great uncle at the turn of the last century and was added onto by his grandfather...'s amazing this was all built by hand... electricity no phones...

                                           Nellie enjoying the view

...100 years of history.  All these signs, afixed to the woodshed, washed up on the shore on the island... of the island are quite rocky and steep.  My sister using a rope to decend one of the paths...'ll guess by her clothing that the weather was not spring-like.  A storm blew in and it was very windy and sleety...

...Nellie didn't move from the kitchen fire...

...but it was still an amazing spring break with my sister.




  1. Looks an amazing place for a holiday. I went on a weekend camping rough in scotland with no phones or contact with the outside world. Good for the soul I think!

  2. What a great place! A real retreat.
