Another Lovely Present Idea About Life Afloat

My lovely blogger pal, Margy, lives in the most amazing floating cabin amongst the mountains in Canada. There is a whole series of wonderful books that describe their floating life that is very much off-grid. Margy has a floating garden which just has to be seen, the amount of produce that she gets is unbelievable. Pop over to her blog where all the books are available to buy, as well a lot more information about their lifestyle.


  1. Looks like a wonderful place to live. Thanks for your kind thoughts and comments over this weekend. Feeling better yesterday and today and hoping the procedure cures all my ills.

  2. Fran, I will absolutely do that. I'm on my way over there. Sounds right up my street!

  3. This sounds very interesting.
    I would think that the winters in Canada would be so cold . . . that being on the water would freeze me, but then the frozen ground is pretty darn cold, too :)
    I'm going over to check this out.
    Have a wonderful day.
    Your blogging sister, Connie

  4. Aren't Margy and Wayne (and their friend John and his dog) just wonderful and inspirational, Fran? I've read most of the books, and am threatening to get myself up to Powell River next time I'm visiting family on the west coast, but, as Margy says, it's pretty much an all-day drive, not a big deal in Western Canada, but when I've only got a week with my family, time flies.
    I'll have to save up my shekels and take the plane from Vancouver airport up the coast.

  5. PS, I have just downloaded the free book of Up the Lake. Hopefully, this is a prelude to buying more of them on Lulu!

  6. Wow Fran - thanks for sharing Wayne's books and my blog. He just keeps on writing, and I keep on editing. He's on a science fiction streak right now. But one of the books is set in a place that sure sounds like our cabin on Powell Lake going in cognito as Fortune Lake. - Margy

  7. Diane - glad to hear that you are feeling better. Just take care of yourself xxx
    Connie - Actually being on the water helps to keep the temperature up! Don't know the science of that though xxx
    Kay - I would be sooo jealous if you could get to see Margy, but would love to see the pictures :) xxx
    Val - I am glad you found the freee book - enjoy, I know I did xxx
    Margy - You are welcome and I look forward to reading the new book xxx
