tales at the end of a fun day.

In the Summertime our yard is bursting with blueberries,
huckleberries and salmonberries which Trina uses in many recipes and
you are welcome to pick as well. Our yard also hosts Rufous
hummingbirds, Winter wrens, Varied Thrushes, Robins, Ravens, Bald
eagles, Sitka black-tailed deer, and a very well-fed mink. Our lake
is home to Harbor seals, dungeness crab, migrating salmon, Red
breasted, Common, and Hooded mergansers, Common loons, Canada geese,
Belted kingfishers, Marbled murrelets, an occasional sea otter, and
even more rarely, transient killer whales!
Beyond the yard, you can stretch your legs for a quick 1/2 mile walk
to the end of the road where you can see the "salt chuck" our road
is named for (one of the two narrow entrance/exit points for water
as the the tides change). A few offshoot logging roads nearby offer
pretty views and berry-picking.
