This sweet piece of property is within walking distance of much of Sequim’s retail, Walmart, Home Depot, and other businesses. Not far away is a small housing subdivision. I suspect it’s one of Sequim’s heritage farms with at least 5-10 acres of land. A good part of the year there is at least a few head of cattle grazing.
First I noticed “For Sale” signs with “SALE PENDING” on them. Now it says “SOLD.” It’s such a pretty little farm. I hope it continues in agriculture rather than the never ending march of new housing.
The bird’s nest caught my eye. The day was dark, colorless, and gloomy. Everything came out black. So I goofed around with Photoshop Elements and came up with this. The pattern is interesting and you can actually see the nest. Thank you, Photoshop!
We recently went to Diamond Point, a little community located on the east side of Sequim Bay. Diamond Point Road serves as the main road into most of area. This time of year it becomes “Holiday Lane.”
Trees and shrubs all along the road are festooned with Christmas tree ornaments. Large and small, grouped and sparse, there are thousands of ornaments brightening the roadway.
Both sides of the road are decorated for about four miles, an impressive expression of holiday cheer.
Michael’s and Ulta are coming to town, two retail biggies. I’ve shown you the progress on their building here and here. It was originally announced that they will open next spring. It looks like they’re probably on schedule.
There I was thinking the rose I found last month was the last of them. I found this one the other day. Need I mention we’ve had snow and countless nights of frost? I’m reevaluating my opinion of the frailty of roses.
This quiet beauty is nestled behind two unassuming homes. I hate to admit how many times I’ve driven past this scene and never fully taken it in.
I first told you about the one dollar house here, in October. I didn’t want to miss too much of its story so I returned to its new, permanent location last Saturday for an fresh look. As far as I could see it’s now sitting squarely on a solid foundation, including a base for its fireplace.
Tyvek now covers some of the previously raw openings and it looks as if the subfloor has been renewed above the foundation. It’s a lovely old house and I want to follow its progress. Stay tuned.
