I have been quite enjoying the yard here at Reid Manor. Quite a change from the distinct lack of land that the floaty home had to offer. Sometimes I find myself just standing on the property, taking in the views. So, I thought I would share some photos with you.
I almost slipped off the dock (pictured above) yesterday in the rain – you’d think I’d know better – having just lived in a marina!
The temperatures have started to cool and I can feel fall setting in. The trees are showing signs now too.
Pictured below is the entrance to ‘our wing’, where I spend a significant amount of time sitting and contemplating while listening to the creek flow, coyotes (wolves?) howl, roosters crow and birds sing.
I also am fortunate to have a variety of spaces I can choose to write in. Currently I sit in the space pictured below. Quite lovely, thank you.
Takes the sting off of giving up our floaty home – a bit.
Speaking of which, I haven’t posted a picture of the floaty home here yet, so to remedy that, I dug one up. It was a fantastic experience while we lived there. Unique – not something I will soon forget.
A stolen boat crashed into us, a violent storm ripped us off the dock, we lived through a winter without heat, we almost died in the ocean on our tiny boat, we made friends with heron, otters, a beaver, swans, a seal – and a pile of random (interesting) people.
It was good.
I am interested to see where life brings us next – onward and (hopefully) upward!
