My friend, Daniel, helping in the bottle tree.

Thanks, Marco, for the loan of the ladder!

This area serves as temporary shop space for whatever project may be at hand. It’s also where we dance and where I hang laundry when it’s raining, or a hammock when it’s not.

Sometimes the bay is obscured by falling rain.

Developing the infrastructure is very much a cooperative venture. All roads begin simply.

This is one of 7 or 8 truck loads of soil or rock moved into the garden so far this year. Looks and behaves like Georgia clay.

The Garden

Our Street.

The dog did not come with the house, but she is still a frequent and welcome visitor.

The view from our porch changes constantly and is never boring. The sound of the ocean is pretty varied, too.

The gazebo. A Dominican friend in the US looked at this photo and noted “This is where we will dance.” He was right.

This ain’t a picture of the hot water heater…

…this, however, is. It’s a good hot water heater, too.

The guest bungalow.

When the evening sun goes down…

A dragon in the kitchen.

We find that you just can’t get enough of the dragons.
