The first two photos were taken from the same vantage point at about 5:30 pm today. The third photo was taken 15 minutes earlier and is taken from above where the stairs in photo #2 go up to.

Mr. Tortuga

Our resident turtle showed up this morning and I watched him make a snack of a slug he came across. We could use a few more like him around here!

Searock Dive

We checked out the water and the wetsuits on a morning when the water was a little rough, but not too rough... We swam the south cove, and then walked across the property to the north side and swam under the natural bridge and into the cave. Next time, we'll just swim on over, or under, if the cave indeed goes all the way across. At low tide, of course...

Cottage foundation

The area under the cottage deck still ain't much to look at, but when I discovered that rats were tunnelling under the concrete foundation into the crawl space adjacent to the downstairs, I excavated down below its bottom and poured new concrete to give them a new challenge. It was already in need of a face lift, so I veneered a layer of rock to the concrete to dress it up a little. When the baby tears grow back, it'll help, too.

A seat at the edge of the world

A work in progress, some of the new curtains...
