Hi Everyone! I am back from Tombstone for the winter and we are getting the ranch ready for all of your arrivals. Think of you all often and look forward to maybe seeing you all soon here at the Ranch.
We are having beautful sunny weather for the Bird Festival in Sequim. My guests are heading out to the Dungeness River Audubon Center to cross over the Historic Bridge and check out the natural history exhibits, the guided bird walks and skip along some riverside trails. Wish you all could be here! I might even take a few classes and field trips they offer. The OOlympic BridFest happens all weedend long. Come and join us!
The US championship for Toad Hunters still remains with our home country. This weekend we had some lovely German children trying to break the record of 23 toads. Even though they gave it a gallent try, the toads did not co-operate. So, as it stands, the Seattle children are still on top. Godd try for all. Until later! Tess.
We are all geared up here on The Ranch for our upcoming guests. There is lavender on their doors and a small gift of lavender in their rooms and in the Cottage. We are really looking forward to seeing all the new faces and a few of the old faces. Last year we had a roaring campfire at night and have folks from all over the world chatting to each other. It was great fun!
This year we have folks from back east, from the Seattle area and from Canada. It should be a fun time. We will roast marshmellows and put chocolate on them and squeeze them into graham crackers.
It has been glorious weather here and should continue right through the festival and on.
Last week we had a returning guest and her daughter in the Cottage and they boarded my kayaiik and slipped down the ditch, ending at the Cottage. They had a fun time. They are probably the first folks (besides myself) that has ever been down the canal by the Ranch. They hung around the Cottage and enjoyed the Ranch to its fullest. What a treat for us to see them relax. They sure earned time of rest with their busy schedules in Oregon.
sue’s daughter Anna will be my second pal on this site and I am looking forward to keeping her posted and hearing what she is doing.
Until my next post….
This is my first post to my blog. I’ll be writing about happening at the Ranch and offering tips and insights into life around the Olympic Peninsula!
We welcome you to our blog – where we’ll keep you up-to-date with happenings around the Ranch.
