This is where we live and work.
We lived and did our metalwork on our little sailboat "Grace" for 18 years. We moved off the boat and now live on the most beautiful farm on Lopez Island. Our shop is in the "Green Bus" smithy.
on the farm. molly on the front steps
in a great pair of socks.
This is a mp3 John made of the frogs
on the marsh on a 'moon lit night' one spring night.
