rocks rock!

I found these rocks on the beach in the Olympic Peninsula.  I was flipping out about the round rocks.  They are just mysterious in how round they are.  The rocks in the back were ones tracy collected to use in some "man" jewelry he's been making lately.  They have holes that go all the way through.

Chito Beach

This is the cabin we are staying at.   Chito Beach is 1-1/2 hrs. west of Port Angeles and 1/2 hr. east of Neah Bay and about 10 minutes west of clallum bay and seiku.

The (super comfy) bed is up the stairs.  There is a nifty reading perch right by a big huge window.

Amazing view from inside the cabin and the deck.

The waves come right up to the rocks under the house at high tide.

Tracy precariously took this shot barely balancing on a giant slippery rock.

I had to include this little co-op in clallum bay because the australian couple running it were very interesting (and inspiring) to talk to.  We felt like we had found kindred souls.

Jane and Terry are making a difference up here with their super healthy foods at super cheap prices and their philosophy of life.  I know in a few years they will turn clallum bay into a magical destination town that will be making decisions from the heart and not the pocketbook or beaurocracy.  More power to them!

Jane made a vegemite sandwich for Tracy since he seemed so curious to try it.  He liked it!

video on cape flattery

click here to see video I made at cape flattery.

Cape Flattery

I have always heard of the beauty of Cape Flattery (Neah Bay, WA.) but I wasn't prepared for the magnificence of this place.  Cape Flattery is the uppermost NW tip of the united states.

The trail is about a 30 minute hike.  These boardwalks make it magical.

caves are so mysterious.

We totally lucked out with temperatures of 50 degrees and sun.  It's been down pouring here for weeks.  Even the drive to Neah Bay that morning was so windy and rainy, our windshield wipers were on super fast mode.  But we rounded the corner into Neah Bay and the sun came out.

Webster's Woods

We headed up to Port Angeles yesterday and found this weird 5 acre art installation called Webster's Art Woods.  These are just a tiny fraction of the art we saw.  It was pouring down rain.

5 new pages

We're heading to the Olympic Peninsula (Neah bay, Cape Flattery) for a weekend of some serious creating and hiking.  Tracy planned it for me for my birthday (on sunday).  So while I am away, here are some newish journal pages.

PLay retreat video

I was talking to Steve Salik (one of our longtime PLAY retreat attendees and friend) about wanting just about 10 more people to our PLAY retreat at the end of this month. We have 30 signed up but need a few more since we have rented houses at the fort that we can't cancel. He suggested we make a video, so that was what Tracy and I did this afternoon. You can view it here:

ringing in the new year

no funner way to bring in the new year than by creating up a storm. this journal is about 8x11
the back.
this is the first page that I have started journaling on. most of the pages you see in the posts below are "empty" journal pages that I am excited about embellishing even more in the months to come.

can't stop making pages
