I am sure my love of living on or close to water is due to having grown up in Northern Minnesota spending my summers at my grandparents’ cabins. Fortunately in most of my (40) moves I have lived very close to water…whether it was in LA or the Bay Area or Minneapolis. And now I spend time at my vacation rental (aka Hopkins Cottage) on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. My cottage is in an area called Hopkins Landing, three kilometers from the town of Gibsons. My homes have always had a bit of a coastal décor, however since I bought a cottage on the west coast of BC, the coastal décor has become more predominant.
