TRAVEL / HOUSEBOAT MINI CRUISE




dalas and I took a trip up to Vancouver Island this summer with friends to go on a houseboat trip, and it was a serious summer highlight. My friends and I have an annual summer tradition of meeting at a cabin in the interior, but this year we decided to do something different and we went houseboating on Sproat Lake! It was ridiculously perfect. First of all, we got the biggest and newest boat on the lake because we seemed “responsible” (aka not a bachelor/bachelorette party, or as Canadians call them, stag/stagette parties), and our boat was named BONEY. There were only a few other houseboats on the lake so it wasn’t the bro fest that happens when there are more boats, just a super chill environment with only the occasional bachelorette trying to disrupt our friends party. We cruised around the lake all day, stopping the boat at random to go swimming (the water was the perfect temperature), adventuring on shore, docking at great night locations for fires and meteor-watching (the perseid meteor shower happened while we were on the lake!), not getting eaten by cougars, sitting in the hot tub, sliding off the slide into the lake a million times, diving championships, night swims, singles loft, da club, tequila, shots director, etc. etc. Rumors. I’m sure no one cares to read a million more inside jokes so just enjoy the photos and seriously consider renting a boat like this with your friends. SO FUN. Mini cruise. These are all medium format film, I will probably do a post with my digital stuff later too!

    Lord above! I had total, gregariously green, sulky, petulant, immature, groan filled envy whilst reading this post. I’m sure to spend the rest of this day in a distracted (still jealous) state…
    Aside – my houseboat experience (albeit when I was 13) – A “griswald” style week spent with the “not our favourite” extended family, sharing a small cabin with all my siblings and my father singing his eyebrows off whilst trying to light the gas oven – he lent in a little too far…. Yep – special.

    god, that CAMERA. So effing crisp yet also dreamy. I mean, obviously I also mean THE PHOTOGRAPHER! But I’ve been contemplating it lately and bought something else, so I’m jealous right now:)

    Oh yeah! I saw on your instagram that you got a different Mamiya, what is it?? Lame that your other one busted. The C330 really isn’t THAT expensive (mine was $300 on ebay), so I bet you could have one at some point!

    Yeah, it’s still a 645, but it’s an AF that was made in like the late 90s I think? So it’s super suped up – all these fancy things like auto focus and auto film winder that I didn’t even know you could get with a film camera! I guess I forgot that digital cameras weren’t mainstream until like 10 years ago. I almost bought the same old M645 and ALSO a C330 that were together in the most perfect ebay listing EVER, but lost at the last second to some dickhole. (I am sometimes that dickhole, so whatevs, karma).

    I know what you mean. I have a couple point & shoot film cameras, like a Canon that I used all through high school… the quality was totally better than the first digital cameras but I stopped using it as soon as I got my first powershot! The mamiya is obviously fancier/nicer than those film ones, I bet it’ll be cool to have those features!

    I got lucky, my C330 was a buy-it-now. Bidding is stressful!
