More catching up!

Well, still trying to get everyone up to speed.....lots going on. Just in case you haven't noticed, I have been adding, in chronological order, our past month's happenings. Check carefully or you could miss something!!

First, our move. Yes, we moved a few weeks ago!! As much as we loved the view at our other place, there was a new "monster/mega" house coming up next door that would completely obliterate our view of the ocean, putting a concrete wall less than 8 feet away from us. No thanks said we! Doesn't matter how close to the pier and beach it was.  Also, the layout just didn't work for us. We were very fortunate to know some friends who just happened to have a lovely two bedroom condo that was here we are. We are actually about a 10 minute walk away from the old place, just up the hill and still in White Rock. We are thrilled to be here.....

We didn't have a proper balcony/deck at the other place so we are so happy to
have someplace comfy to sit and drink our wine, even if it is small....and if you look to the left off the deck, Orcas island in the San Juan Islands is still there.


We are nearly all done "Beglaw-izing" it. A few more touches and we can relax!!

Just in case anyone is keeping track of all our craziness, the last few months have gone a bit like this.....

1) Sold our trusty ride, Euri..... 2) We started full time work again..... 3) We moved..... 4) Are thrilled to welcome into our family a new grandson, lovely little Rudy. A beautiful little cousin for Gus and Jasper..... 5) Still looking for that elusive little trailer to replace Euri. Did I mention the working part? Oh yes, I see I did! 

Yup, no wonder we are happy and tired!!!

All is good and we are VERY thankful for all the above.

  1. Welcome to your new home! The balcony looks plenty big enough.

  2. Wow! No wonder we haven't heard from you. You haven't had time to breathe! Lots of changes for you two and it sounds like all of them are positive for you right now. Good luck with the trailer search. We know you'll find the perfect rig to adventure with in the years ahead. Congrats on your new place and vehicle. Both look great and suit you perfectly! I really must check in more often. This was a lot to take in in one sitting!!! :-) Abrazos, amigos.
