Property Bought!

P1000423_FotorWe did it! After a couple of hours in court, we are now the owners of 15 acres in the Slocan Valley – specifically, about a K or so south of Silverton. Whew!

I don’t have the faintest idea how I feel. Scared mostly. But we’ve done it. I’m committed to this process. After our hike into the alpine yesterday, I know that this is country I will explore and love. I also know that Simon is going to do everything in his power to make it work: to bring more light into the house and to bring more sun to the garden.

That said, there isn’t a whole ton of time to get scared or anything else. As soon as we finish lunch we are going back to the campsite and then Simon is off to the property to take measurements and poke around. Tomorrow we are off to Manning Park for a last fling in the alpine. Then – back to the island.

Feels like madness. And that means that before we head back, we are stopping at the liquor store. I don’t drink often. Tonight might just be the night to do that.
