For the past 25 years, I have been cruising the Pacific Northwest in my powerboat, "As You Wish". My backyard is in Howe Sound but I also enjoy the Gulf Islands and the odd trip to Desolation - Princess Louisa is one of my favourite places on earth. I spend most of my time at anchor or a club outstation.

I love a good dock party or a side-tie in a remote anchorage and live for flavourful snacks, fun cocktails, a stack of magazines and a healthy dose of dock talk.

I am a shopper and love cool products that actually work. My friends and I spend countless hours floating, sipping beverages and talking about what works and what doesn't. We didn't invent any of this stuff but we sure like to think we did.

Cruise my website and blog for:

  • Tips & Tricks for menu planning, food preparation and storage

  • Easy to prepare appetizers for your dock party

  • Drinks with umbrellas

  • "Why didn't I think of that?" products

  • Favourite reads for the back deck

  • Onboard health and beauty

  • And the tunes...................
