Believe it or not we’ve come to the end of September. The long days of summer are fast falling behind us and the first bites of winter are nipping at our heels. Mother Nature is in the midst of her fall changes and seems to teeter on the edge of indecision, and we’re starting to see it […]
Having gotten some philosophical musings out in my last post (THANK YOU everyone for all the comments…it really seemed that post resonated deeply with a bunch of folks & many of your thoughts touched me profoundly), I’ve decided to pick a more practical topic for today’s post. This is actually one of the 20+ posts that have been […]
Our hosting family here at Cape Blanco has been growing and we’re now up to the full quota. This particular volunteer job takes 4 couples (singles are hired on occasion too) and we all rotate through the schedule with an average of ~3 days on and ~3 days off per week (Monday and Tuesday is […]
I don’t usually post two days in a row, but I know many of you are dangling on the edge of your seats wondering if we made it down the mountain. So, rather than keep you in stressful suspense I thought I’d let you know that we did…and all without any kind of drama at all. […]
Back when I had the idea of living on an Island with “the beast“, hubby thought I was slightly mad. I can’t exactly tell you why I wanted to do it, just that I really, really did. Thankfully I’m more stubborn than a dead mule and I have to admit the entire thing turned out quite nicely. […]
What we were really looking for was a lighthouse hosting job. I’d been calling every single Washington lighthouse (all 21 of them) since the middle of December trying to find someone that needed hosts for the summer and could take a 40-foot RV. Surprisingly only two lighthouses had shown any interest. One position we took (North Head), […]
I’ve got a BUNCH of photos to share of the gorgeous place we’re staying, but before I get to them I thought I’d follow-up our previous post with one last lighthouse-related item -> a compilation of the top 10 questions we’ve been asked about lighthouse hosting over the past 3 years. As certified “lighthouse nuts” we’ve visited […]
We’re back at “work” (and I use that term veeeery loosely) which means it’s time to update you all about what exactly we’re doing.
Those who follow the blog know that we like to volunteer in the summer months. In fact I’ve written extensively about volunteering & previous jobs in our volunteer section HERE. […]
My little teaser at the bottom of my last post raised a few good guesses (some of which were right!!) and a few fun ideas. Well, wait no more! Today I reveal all and I have to admit we’re pretty darn excited for our plans, all of which will involve brand new experiences for us […]
I spent last night dreaming about lighthouse keepers. Part of it’s being in this remote & crazy place, part of it’s the book on History of Female Lighthouse Keepers that I’m absorbing like a sponge. Many of these women followed their men to Lighthouse posts in god-forsaken spots and became widowed or […]
