"My grandfather brought his wife and nine children to Cortez Island in 1917 with the dream of founding his own orchard, flower garden, and nursery." And so started a family legacy that would draw the author back to BC's coastal islands for the rest of her life. In 1930, June's parents bought the Loumar, a 36-foot wooden boat destined to become the family summer home for two decades. Now in her memoir of photographs, June relives the magic of those summer days on the Loumar. She provides historical background and highlights points of interest for travellers visiting the island today.
June Cameron has been sailing up and down the coast of BC since the mid-1970s. A competitive sailor for over a decade and a long-time contributor to Pacific Yachting, she is also the author of Destination Cortez Island and Shelter from the Storm.
