Coast House Weekend

The coast house has been in need of a little TLC which Kim, Dave & I were able to provide. Our list is still long, mainly yard work, but some jobs were completed. Above photo is sunset at Patterson beach just south of Waldport on Jan 2.

We set Dave to work on the smoke stack problem. The rain protection shield had blown off a month+ ago. Dave figured out how to reattach the shield with no problems. He also found vent covers to keep the birds out of the roof in the spring.  Bird poo on the west facing windows last summer was kind of a drag.

Kim and I worked on clearing the patio space plus cutting back the asparagus and beet beds. Nice weeds Kim!

George helping out…

We were rather surprised to find out how large beets can grow when left to their own for over two seasons.

The beet certainly resembled a heart…. disturbing!

The wax seal has broken on the garage/studio toilet. Guess that will have to wait until the next visit.  Maybe we can even get the plastic pots removed from the shower too. My mother had interesting storage ideas for sterilized bins. We had a great time just hanging out together and are looking forward to spending time there every month. As my dad says “Use it or loose it!”. Using it seems to be the best option.

  1. I agree with the use it option. If you ever find yourself wondering if you should use it or not, go to that first sunset picture. That should clear up any doubt!

    1. Yes, use it is the right thing to do. Plus we can drag along friends to share in the beautiful sunsets. I’m sure we will have to twist your arm!

  2. The heart shaped beet is beyond fabulous! So sorry to learn of the passing of your friend, Mari! The wanderers/sketchers/recorders of the world are sacred souls indeed!
