Retired On The Coast... Experiencing Life On A Boat...
Beautiful British Columbia Canada... Living Spaceship Earth
Since our arrival we've been experiencing life aboard living spaceship Earth
Since 2006... we completely renovated and now live-aboard, a large wooden boat
Since 2012... we renovated another smaller boat to cruise British Columbia's coast each summer
We're managing to do it on one small government pension
Between 1998 and 2010... we lived on a large truck/trailer in western Canada
We share the experience here...
Our Crew Mission Spaceship Earth Section... names one specific cause for humanities abuse of our spaceship and outlines one specific cure
Our Boat Chronicle... documents with words and photos, our boats and the things we see and do along the way
Our Stories Section... goes beyond the boats, with stories about the truck/trailer, meeting new people, an averted tragedy and much more... most include photos
On other pages... you can learn about us and view photo galleries and videos
A bit about site navigation...
Generally there are no more than two links to get to any page
There's regular menu buttons at the top, a floating home, contact and page top link on the right and orange or yellow texts are links
A helpful note... there's lots and often new content...
So, here's an easy way to come back and check us out...
email yourself a reminder link... we don't get a copy but you can contact us to be put on our mailing list for new content
Just for the fun of it...
A peek at the past through a one minute You Tube video of my Firebird - firewood processor
I built this in 1993 on my heritage farm in northern Alberta Canada
The heritage farm story is on our stories page
There's photos and info about the Firebird on our virtual tours page
This site is about sharing... So we're interested in hearing from you
