Still Moving

Thought I'd give you a quick status update. We're still moving. It doesn't escape me that we say the same thing about something that isn't quite dead. We still don't have internet access at the new house. I'm at the library now.

I went over to the new house last Sunday. This is the view from our backyard and from our table now in the kitchen. The weather was relatively nice that day.

This is a quick shot of the house on Monday morning, moving day. Wet snow all day. I was passing by on my way to pick up Mark for a trip to Wenatchee for a consultation with a surgeon so I missed that day. But I got in on day two, three, four, five...I'll let you know when the counting stops.

I took a little time to walk down to the river yesterday for a first scout. It's close; that's the house back there. Lovely wild area all up and down the river for a long way.

The river looks very promising here: a long deep run along our bank, shallows along the island providing access to it all.

The question was whether there was wadable access on this side. There is. Follow the deer.

I don't know how soon I'll be able to fish, or how soon we'll have internet, but I hope my next report will come directly from my new man cave.


  1. Ah! I love the looks of your new view. Keep on moving....good days are ahead.

  2. Congrats on the new place...looks like a dream to me , beautiful river right out your back door with access and all!!
    Looking forward to that first trip report from the "backyard hole"

    What I would give to have a stream like that to fish--big difference in that stream as opposed to a tailrace. Land some for me!!!

  4. Thanks for the comments, guys. Yes, I'm getting more excited the longer I'm in the new house. Can hear the river gurgle at night, geese squabbling. And it looks like we're in a good area for eagles. Still waiting to get in the water. Hope that will come soon.
