On The Water

June 17, 2015

I’ve always loved the idea of a home on the water –– be it lake, sea or ocean. My father’s house, on the far flung Greek island of Kastellorizo, is five or six small steps away from the sea. Imagine a giant, salt water swimming pool –– refreshingly cold and dazzlingly blue –– for all who live in the port. The only caveat to the location is zero privacy. A palazzo in venice sounds romantic too, until the acqua alta rises enough to flood your Ferragamos. My sister-in-law has a gorgeous cabin on its own tiny island on a lake near Parry Sound. It’s too isolated for me, but in terms of true Canadian experiences, this place is as cozy and authentic as a vintage Hudson Bay blanket. I’m still searching for my dream getaway, but in the meantime, you can find me perched on the steps of this whitewashed Indian gem.
