One of the most special places for Dave’s family is their cabin in the interior of British Columbia. The cabin itself is redolent with memories, one action triggering dozens of stories about previous experiences from over the years. Since he’d been living so far away, there is a huge time gap for Dave where he hasn’t been able to be a part of the stories being forged there. Now that we live in Canada, that is changing and Little Man is making his mark (sometimes literally) on the cabin as well.
For me, one of my favorite things is to watch the ever changing view of East Barriere Lake. It never ceases to amaze me. Like the weather in the American midwest, if you don’t like it, wait a moment or two and it will change. Here are some of my favorite views from the cabin from our trips to the cabin since we’ve moved to Canada.
When it rains…
Autumn morning with the water as still as glass.
Sunset at our first Thanksgiving in Canada (at least for Little Man and I).
I can’t wait to see how it looks the next time we get to go out.
So beautiful! Makes me want to go and have dinner at the East Barriere Lake Cafe!
Me too! Especially if salmon is on the menu…

I can’t wait to make many new memories with Little Man and you..oh and the rest of the family too.
How do I get in on this action?!
You’re in! Now just grab your babies and your man, and head to the airport… 🙂
I might wait for warmer months but I vow to be there someday!!! Its been too long since I was swimming with your polar bear husband. 🙂
I totally agree. You polar bears need to stick together, while the lizard folk like me can lounge in the sunshine… with appropriate sun protection, of course.

Barriere doesn’t happen to rhyme with derriere, does it?
Ha! In fact it does… Especially if you are utilizing the aforementioned derriere for sitting on the deck and admiring the view.
Wow. How beautiful, peaceful, romantic. Just wow!
Thanks, Cheryl. East Barriere Lake is pretty amazing. It’s just one of those places where I could sit and stare for days and feel like I’m always seeing something new.
