(My version of) Vacation Slides - Part 1

Tags: , , ,


I consider the place we stayed at earlier this month to be one of the most serene places ever built on the West Coast. Situated on a 7 acre forest lot, the Forest House is a marvel.
Every item carefully chosen, this place was designed by the owner and the architect to be touched, enjoyed and savoured. Here's a sampling of what we enjoyed that week.


Our front door for the week, complete with the gift of Ikebana.


The hand hewn bench from where I watched the deer graze.



One of the best places to watch the deer, play the guitar, read, or simply lie back and dream away an afternoon.


The owner thought of everything - from the gently trickling fountain to the table of art supplies, there was always something else to savour.
