Nice! An Airstream will look great in that driveway. Plus, it's a lot closer to the ferry than your place by Rosario. You're settling in nicely.

Nice! You have a lot of madrone (a) trees there. They are special, don't burn that wood if it comes down for some reason, use it, it's beautiful and those trees are on the decline. Arbutus menziesii - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We're working on our kitchen now, sooner (hopefully sooner) or later we'll be back up there to join you (seems like it's been forever).

our fingers are surely crossed

deal is done as can be at this point...

next step is bank appraisal...just time...no sweat..all parties desire a swift closing.....so....sometime in the next 20 or so days....

yes the madrone trees are enchanting and beautiful...a drought resistant species that is more prevalent on the west side (the gold coast)..

it is amazing that ...here on the island...the trees have to root on top of the ground as it i all rock and wet...trees run their roots on top of the ground an into rock crevices...the madrones more so ....and thrive in drier climates...

there have been many cut off the property as there is a stack of firewood size that is very old...

there are a couple that don't look healthy....

the picture of the driveway...as it relates to airstreams...is well deceiving....

getting to the property is not bad...by island standards that is...

as the road enters this property it starts an incline and then two fairly tight

S curves continuing to the end where it splits ..to the right...a neighbor...the left enters my driveway that first comes to the entrance of the guest house ....and a shelter where there is 30 amp electrical service....

great you say....well...i still am eyeing whether i want to try to put a 28 ft where it needs to go...

an INTERSTATE....may be in my future?????????

pictures later....

Yesterday feb 26th

the dream is finally realized.. and now just begins

the airstream dream adventure that began in 2009...in search of eldorado...the place of magic...of newness..of change...of promise

realized..... two airstreams, hundreds of thousands of miles, and millions of smiles ago

tears and tribulations; joy and awe after 40 years of the dave ramsey theory...before there was a dave ramsey.....40 years of going to work each day, stumbling, one foot in front of the other ...making the business run...or getting there...,luck and more luck along the way....someone shining a light on me

live like nobody else...so that you can live like nobody else.....

and that's how i got to memphis...

paula and i, and the bank ...own 10 acres of paradise on orca island , washington

1110 PEABODY LANE

Congratulations. So excited for you. We believe its one of the most beautiful areas.

Don't listen to the negative posts. Its always someone job to naysay and rain on on someone else's parade.

If we make it that far north someday again we will look those of you up who live in that little piece of paradise.
