Wooden boats

While in Vancouver this weekend, we happened upon a wooden boat show on Granville Island. Hillmark Boats had some row boats on display (they also make canoes and kayaks).  This photo doesn't do them justice. They are so, so lovely. I really would love to own a wooden row boat with a little sail. I love the combination of a white base and wooden trim.

  1. Chelsea, this post brought a special smile to my face today. My boyfriend, Eli, leaves in October to go to school for just this. I think I’m going to buy a pair of topsiders in preparation/to celebreate

  2. I’m so with you on this…I would love to own one too! These are fantastic. Don’t you just love the little treasures that we sometimes happen upon?!?!? Great find and thank you for sharing.
