Why yes, I do want to live in a tree house.

Specifically, this treehouse, perched on the rocks of Passage Island.  This amazing place is just a 5 minute water-taxi from Fisherman’s Cove, West Vancouver.  It’s listed  for $399,000 – why does that seem like such a deal?

100% self-sufficient…solar panels….generators… views to kill for…

How good would a latte and a book be in this very spot?

Grey clouds have dropped like a gauze over the city today. It’s reading weather.  I am a chapter into Anne Michaels‘ newest book, The Winter Vault. It’s only the second novel she’s ever written – her first being the famed story of Jakob Beer in Fugitive Pieces (oh how I loved Michaela). Most interesting so far has been the history surrounding the St. Lawerence River and the construction of the seaway as it swallowed whole towns. If you don’t like aching, poetic language, this is probably not the book for you.  I just happen to love what tortures others.

Thought: homes should be designed to inspire reading. What does that mean? Full of places that invite you to linger.  

Admission: I watched Marley and Me last night and cried like a baby. If you don’t have a dog, you might not get it.

Bon Weekend!

    AWESOME. I’ve looked through all the photos. how amazing are the views? I would seriously consider this place. the only things that concern me are 1. that you can’t hook your boat/transport onto a dock -from what i read you have to hook it to a buoy and row in (waves!! shopping!!) and 2. earthquakes? while in a house nestled on the rocks of a B.C. island? hmm. i’m not sure.

    but I love it!!

    You should inform the realtor that you expect a commission if the buyer cites your blog… just kidding… sort of.

    Awesome place – now if only I could sell my house for the price I would have gotten a year ago….
