“Sunshine and Smiles: Spring Arrives on the West Coast”

Spring has officially sprung on the West Coast, and I’m starting to feel a sense of renewal and rejuvenation. The days are getting longer, the flowers are starting to bloom, and the air is filled with excitement and possibility.  The arrival of sunshine and warmth is a welcome change, an invitation to embrace the lighter, brighter side of life.

You can feel the energy growing in the forest and beaches around Qathet.  The recent herring run has brought a lot of noisy Sea Lions to the Salish Sea.  Birds are starting to look for mates and the trees and plants are ready to blossom, bud or sprout.  The potential is palatible and once Spring gets started on the West Coast, there’s no holding it back.

As much as I’d like to be in full gardening mode, I have to resist the temptation. The yard in front of the house looks like a construction zone and I’m bursting with landscaping ideas, but I have to focus on getting our lives sorted and moved up to Twin Eagles.  It’s no small feat to sort through twenty-seven years of memories and decide what needs to migrate up the coast and what can be gotten rid of.   I’ve been at it for several weeks and it will take several more, but it’s going to be worth all the work and I’m aching to get back to that little slice of paradise.  

It’s been a stressful winter and I have to remind myself to take a moment to appreciate the beauty and wonder of this magical season.

    1. Thanks Phil, I’m still trying to figure out what kind of things to post about and what tone to take in my blog. Hopefully it will be fun to look back at these posts to remind myself what I was feeling and thinking at every stage of the process. At this point, it looks like it will be about a year before construction is complete and we can move in. It should be a fun ride. Cheers, Brian

  1. Oh so happy to stumble across this blog! Clearly have read it back to front, which I’m sure is noy]t a social comment. 🙃

    Love learning about your lives outside of the urban world. Looks like paradise.

    1. I’m glad you found it Maggie. I’ll try to keep it up to date as things are going to start progressing pretty rapidly this summer. I sure hope you get the chance to make it up to this part of the Sunshine Coast. I would love to have you visit and be able to show you guys around.
