So… that date night I mentioned? Kevin and I decided to go up to the property so he could show me what he’s been doing up there, and so we could try out the new hammock I bought. We picked up some sushi and drove up there. Kevin has really done a lot! He rented a skid-steer last week, and built some road up to the top of the property and started excavating a little bit where we want to put our future home.
At first I thought we were crazy for wanting to move up here, what with the 30 minute drive up a somewhat scary road, the remoteness of it all. But then I look at this view and think we’re crazy for wanting to stay in town!
It will probably take a while (several years) before we actually move up there… but until then, we can come up and tromp around and enjoy whenever we want.
This is looking to the east, maybe a little bit southeast.
Kevin cleared out an area on the lower part of the property for picnicking and camping fun. I bought a hammock, since it was something I have wanted since I was a little kid, and we have the perfect trees to hang it.
Success! Then Kevin has to try too- it is a 2 person hammock, after all.
So much fun! I haven’t giggled that much since I don’t know when!
It was quite chilly up there… so we kept our shoes on. And doubled up on our jackets.
(Oh yes, and the hair is quite blonde right now.)
Great date! Can’t wait to go back up there again.
