Packing up

MAOs’ Enchanted Forest  |  April 15 – August 31, 2018

Our stay in West Vancouver has come to an end.  Again I am amazed at the passing of time.  When we arrived the creek beside the house was a raging river, today it is much calmer and quieter. 

It has been wonderful to experience spring and summer in the enchanted forest.  Enjoyed the wildlife of our backyard forest – black bear, wolf, owl and woodpecker were delights to see.  The lost hikers and dog walker were fun too.  😉

Cypress Falls Creek was the soundtrack to our days and nights.  Raging in early spring … Gentler and quieter at the end of August.  

We have loved every minute here and were grateful to have friends and family come to visit us.  So wonderful to share our enchanted forest!       

Grateful today for our time here. 

Our hearts are filled with the beauty , wonder and awesomeness of nature in BC. 

Ready to get back on the road tomorrow with MAO.

Nomad Life

A year ago, we began our nomad life.
Since then we have had 43 different stays.
43 times packing, schlepping, unpacking and getting settled in.

Each time, getting adjusted to a new kitchen, locating groceries, and making food.
Have bought 2 salad spinners, 2 blenders and 2 citrus squeezers,
Left 1 of each in different places…

As we travelled about, we continued working virtually…
Got through a cancer diagnosis, surgery and recovery,
And continue to move all things forward.

More stays coming up as we continue on our nomad path…

Grateful today for
all the love and support from friends and family,
staying connected virtually,
and for my MAO, who holds my paw everywhere we go.

Mountain Blessings

On Bushy Head Mountain

We have been at Mountain Blessings in Cherry Log, GA for 1 week.
Prior to that, we drove through West Virginia, overnight stop in Morgantown,
then to Charlotte, NC for a couple of nights…
Drove on to Brasselton, GA for a few rounds of golf with Uncle Stu before arriving here.

Settling nicely into the cabin,
enjoying the serenity and quiet of the mountains.
So far, no encounters with the 500 lb bear and her 4 cubs. Whew!

It’s been an emotional week for me.
Loving the new environment we are in, always up for new adventures,
and realizing how far we are from our known world…

The Elven Queen once told me that change has its stages.
I’m often not prepared for all the stages…
Possibly too rushed to notice?

Grateful today for
the miles we have travelled without incident,
all our friends and family who love and inspire us,
and for MAO. Thank you for taking me on this grand adventure with you.
