We got back to Bend on March 7 and found lots of snow still on the property! Everything survived the winter and thank goodness for Robert’s foresight to cover the hottub with sturdy corrugated metal! We discovered evidence of wildlife use of the deck and shed while we were gone.
Several of our friends staged a “party” on the deck on a freezing winter day and Alastair took this great picture, blew it up and framed it for us. It was wrapped and waiting in the shed for our return. What a great Homecoming!
