P1100628_FotorThis would be a good place to be right now. And, in a way, I am sad to know that this brief and amazing part of the summer is over. As we hiked the Rockies, it felt like it was never going to end – there were just so many places to see, so many mountains to hike. And now, alas, it’s almost over.

Nelson and the Slocan Valley are wonderful and I suspect that with time and exploration, I’m going to find some pretty awesome places here. I do seem to recall that it took a bit of time to find those places on Vancouver Island. Here, I’m armed with better information – finding the heights will be quicker and easier.

There is, I think, trepidation for most people when they consider a major change in their lives. For me, there is both more and less than for a lot of people. Less, because I do like change. More, because changes of a similar nature in the past have not always ended well. What it all comes down to now is a choice between one of two properties we have viewed today. One or the other – or neither. We can simply go back to the island and rent until we find a place to buy some time down the road. I’ve been living the past sixteen or more years with the idea of never buying again and I need to wrap my head around owning again – and having that be a good experience.

All right then- one property is fifteen acres with a fine house that is almost finished but that has challenging land surrounding it.

The other is a triple lot with gorgeous soil and a garden area but with a horrible house. However it’s located in a community we love.

What to do? How much will each cost? And those are just two questions. There are others. I know that we need to make a decision tonight.

Regardless, I am hiking tomorrow with Cathy and Nancy. If there’s anything at all that will clear my head, that should do it.
