My husband and I have been coming to Winthrop, WA (East of Seattle–four hour drive) for the past 9 years to go cross country skiing. It’s a small community where there are no stop lights and and most of the locals know just about everyone.
We decided to build a home and spend most of our days here. Although I live mostly in California right now, I come to Winthrop about every two months for about two weeks. During this visit we had a lot of house projects to do. We’re in the final stages of completing the home, however, it has been livable for some time.
We stained our trim and windows. Then we moved on to painting all the non-wood doors. These are not hollow doors, oh no! They are solid and extremely heavy. I got my workout.
But, we did find time to play. On our way to town on our bikes, these beautiful horses approached us while riding the trail.
There was also time to paint.
And, even time to stop and take pictures of the wild flowers.
My bags are now packed and I’m heading to California again while my handsome husband continues to work on our new home and work his day job, too. I will miss him so much!
So, what is it that I love most about Winthrop? All of the above!
