Walks on the Property and House Plans

yellow flowersThe work crew has been busy chopping and opening the hiking trails on the property. We had a visitor from Seattle this past week and went on several excursions through the property with him. I think I am finally figuring out my favorite routes depending on what level of exercise and what type of vistas I want to experience. The level of enthusiasm the dogs display when following and leading us on the walks is incredible. They rarely slow down and are always looking to see what is around the next bush or up the next dog trail. I feel so fortunate to be able to give Roxy and Spencer this type of outdoor exercise.

The house plans are still a work in process, however we did meet with a builder over the weekend. He will be one of several we will interview before making a selection. If the plans and selection of the contractor end up taking too long then there is the chance we will have to wait until the end of the year, or the beginning of the next dry season, to begin construction. At this point, now that we have the extended living areas in the guest suite, it doesn't bother me if we need to wait.
