Shopping Stemilt

              OUR VALLEY

You might have heard of the fruit company called   Stemilt   I think they ship across our great country. 

We are blessed to have them in our own back yard.

 Have you ever spotted such luscious pears?

 The corn comes in from Quincy, all freshly picked,  Yummy.

 Freshly dug potatoes--perfect for those twice baked potatoes. 
Well, just another quick visit to our valley. Might just be a good reason why we call it paradise.

                                                   My second Blog

 What you might call a big work in progress. I have yet to pick colors, fonts and fun stuff.
I did want to get started and to let you know I am inviting you to share a bit of my paradise.

               So dry and so wet

We are on the 'dry' side or desert side of the state of Washington.  Many think of Washington as being Seattle, but, it is so much more then that.
The picture above is called Lake entiat, which was created when a dam (one of many) were placed on the Columbia river.
As you can see from the hills it is dry. 
The dam brought irrigation to the valley and many farms and orchards.  
It also brought recreation.
            Boating a family sport
Just a brief preview of what I like to share.

I also hope to share my down sizing story.
That just might be chapter one!!

So join me on my journey. Maybe I can encourage you if you are facing challenges and feel alone.  You probably will end up being the ones who encourage me.
