Still can't quite believe it
It seems a little odd, but two and a half months into this giant adventure, I still can't quite believe that we're here! Being "home" on the coast feels amazing and although we miss our friends and family members back on the prairie, the lifestyle here is a great fit for us. We've never been so active and motivated to BE active - the beauty all around us beckons...
October beach play seems so ridiculously indulgent I giggle like a child every time we go! It's a 5 minute drive to the ocean - pinch me, am I dreaming?
Typhoon Songda brought strong seas to the area resulting in a beach full of torn seaweed. Taking only seaweed washed up above the high tide line (and only from a small area), we filled the bottom of our 8x8 utility trailer in just a few minutes. We feel incredibly lucky to have access to this rich nutrient resource for the garden and will be working to incorporate it into our new (in-process) sheet mulching project (more on that soon).
Now that the big "crunch" of work is over, I'm finding a little time for blogging and hope to update more regularly again.
Until next time XO
