A few weeks ago, I hopped on a ferry with my friend Amelia for a few relaxing days in a geodome at Backeddy Resort and Marina. I've been eyeing these domes for over a year now, so finally seeing them in person was a dream come true! As we set off in the moody weather from Horseshoe Bay, the anticipation grew for our off-the-grid experience awaiting us at the other end.
Hilary is one of my favorite adventure buddies (you may recognize her from my trip to Mayne Island!). As much as I'd like to hog her to myself, I'm pretty excited that she has found such an incredible life partner in Greg. Last summer, on the day they were moving into their new home, Greg got down on one knee in the doorway and asked Hilary to marry him. I've been eagerly anticipating their wedding and engagement photos ever since!
I've always been a fan of treehouses. I don't know if it started when I started watching Star Wars and fell in love with Ewoks and Endor, but there is just something about a home amongst the trees that makes me happy. A few years ago, I heard about a place called Treehouse Point in Washington, which is a Bed & Breakfast in Issaquah, just outside of Seattle, where you can actually stay in these beauties!
Mayne Island is full of treasures and beauty around every corner. They say the deer population outnumbers the residents on this island, and after spotting numerous deer around each and every bend in the road, I would say this is a fair assumption!
