First Christmas (2006) in Florida.
In quiet moments as I sit on our patio and look out over the desert landscape, I sometimes struggle to understand – WHAT THE HELL ARE WE THINKING! Upon reflection it has been an interesting mix of emotions from fear to resignation to wonderment to confusion – the gambit. So, that brings me to this blog.
Since beginning this blog we have been joined by our two daughters and now have a grandson, Ryan. Our daughter, Meredith and Ryan live with us adding a dynamic to our lives that has been a joy and a challenge. This blog will contain my biased ‘insights’ into our decision making but more just a chronicling of our adventure. Because I am writing this ‘journal’ it will also discuss fishing (mostly with a fly), camping, kayaking, putting thousands of miles between family and friends and most certainly blues music. About making the Pacific Northwest ‘home’.
Darryl is fond of saying that we could be “dropped in the middle of a field” and we could figure out how to thrive. Well, so far so good, I guess.
