A new addition

Early August, J and I added a new addition to our family. Most assumed we’d added someone new to the zoo, but no, this time it’s a boat. Yep, a boat. I still can’t quite believe it myself.

This has been a dream for J since he was a kid and so it has finally came true for him. Thankfully, I’m in total heaven by the water (must be the Pisces in me) and have always daydreamed of one day living by it. So, you could say this is a dream come true for me too.

As the boating season comes to a close in roughly 2 months, we’ve been enjoying every minute we can over at the marina where we are docked. We spent out first overnight there this past weekend and it was so much fun. To be honest, it’s hard to be anywhere else but here. Can you blame us? I sure hope the next 2 months go by slow and provide us with the gorgeous weather we’ve had so far.

As you can imagine, the dogs are thrilled too. We managed to score an awesome slip to accommodate them. Not only is it relatively private (aside from the few awesome neighbours we have) but we literally step off our dock onto a decent amount of grass for them to run around on to their hearts content. The cherry on the top is being steps away from a small beach where they can go for a swim. It couldn’t be anymore perfect.


While I love every minute there, there’s something special about that time of day when the sun starts to set. You can’t fight (and why would you?) the inner peace it brings. Stunning isn’t it? I’m incredibly lucky to have a “second home” with views like this . So incredibly lucky.
