There have been visitor days with many events in them, and a shopping day (new camera), an outer coast day, lying-around-reading days, procrastination days. Time flies.
Sunrises have been gorgeous, even with a shortage of clear-weather days.
The 'fish window' ended, and the dam removal contractor is able to work in the riverbed again. Holidays and winter storms have interfered a bit, but woo hoo, dam cam entertainment once again on the agenda.
With RF & MS, ran all over the local landscape, but in their style. Tiny walks, shopping, meals in, meals out, questing for lavender salad dressing, sidetrip to the most supremely weird Roadside America location you never heard of (Troll Haven in Gardiner, overlooking Discovery Bay); twice to Salt Creek (once with RF, once the three of us), a walk in the forest at Barnes Creek, waiting for logships, and all. Oh, and a rock and roll dancing party, thankyou youtube.
The tides are never right at this time of year. Every time I bring a visitor to Salt Creek, the tidepools are under the waves.
...and the little island is indubitably an island, and we can't walk on the sand out to it.
It's almost all about water, innit? Except when it's about people.
