Cabin Life on Flickr.
Spent a lovely day with an old friend and his family at their family place on Bowen Island. His forebears were smart enough to buy not one but both of the cabins pictured here, right beside the beach, ages ago when normal mortals could do such things. Now, the cabins are shared by the whole family and, used most of the year.
When I was growing up, visiting Vancouver in the summer, it seemed everyone had a summer home like this, my Grandparents had one in Washington State, an uncle with a nice cabin in the interior and, the summers were spent going from cabin to cabin. Now, the summer cabin is the retreat of only the very lucky (like my friend) or the very rich.
This, is a sad thing.
