Part one of many! Over the next few months, I'll be posting a few series of pictures from this past summer at our family cabin in Canada. The town of Sechelt is located on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia. By car, it takes somewhere around five hours to get to from Seattle. However, that time can vary greatly, depending on Seattle/Vancouver traffic, border waits, and ferry schedule. Easy enough to get to for an extended weekend getaway, and remote enough that its not overcrowded. The town itself is a good mix of locals and vacation homes.
With our ever-growing family, it was decided last year that a re-build of the cabin was in order. So, instead of squeezing 11 of us into 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom (as well as the deck, laundry room, ect. ) we now have bedrooms to fit all of us, and no more sharing 1 bathroom! Although it is missing the rustic charm and memories from 50 years past, we will keep the "cabin" alive through photos, memorabilia and pieces from the old structure. I think that preserving the past is part of what I love about taking photos - its important to keep those memories alive.
Here's some photos from the opening our new cabin, with the whole family there to celebrate and make new memories. You can also see our adventures on Instagram with the hashtag #sech15
