Orcas Island………

In 2008 the wife and I stayed on Orcas Island in the San Juan archipelago off the coast of washington st. It was gorgeous and laid back and while we were there we visited the Orcas Island Pottery shop and it was awesome.

Check out below  the classic Northwest native carving of a whale on the side of the building. The connection between the carvings and mythology are really inspiring.

Check out this treehouse on the same property.

    Tohner, you have been putting out so much good stuff lately I haven’t had time to craft a worthy comment, although I may do some retro-jacking this weekend. Developments at work have me putting together not one but two small crews for the 2014 building season. Not what I had in mind for the year but it fits with my plans to buy a couple rural acres here on the Florida East Coast and now for some reason I am thinking about some kind of boondocks retreat in the hills above Monterey.

    Meanwhile, I have taken the liberty of posting a link to my own tree house story. I hope you don’t mind…

      Looking forward to a blog- jacking. I remember that tree house post it’s a really good one. It’s a strange feeling re visiting places you built in another life especially when it involves taking it down. Sometimes I think people forget how much emotion goes into building things by those that build it.
      Keep truckin-
      Until we blog again- tohner

The good life.
Room with a view. #lakebum#lifeisbetteroutside #lookingoutmybackdoor #getoutside#brenham#artisanbuilder
Case study: become one with the hummingbirds. Day 7: the hummingbirds have seemed to accepted me into their tribe. They no longer fear me...instead I have begun to make sense of their language. Even delved into their societal behaviors. A Hierarchy rule of law exists here where sugar is life. They don’t seem to be bothered by the trivialities of life. They seem only to be focused on sugar. An obsession that has turned into almost a mediation all based around their need for the almighty sugar. Their wings seem to beat like drums and between the beats you can hear the whale/dolphin like noises they emit and if you listen close enough you can hear.....Sugar.........Sugar.........Sugar. Sorry.....I have to go now they seem to be questioning my attention to this phone...later.... #hummingbird #ecology#naturalist#dontbesoserious #lifeisshort#getoutside#wildlifebiology
Song of the hummingbird. Slow motion captured them talking and it sounded strangely like humpback whales. This is way better then whatever is on tv. Trust me. #hummingbird #naturalist#outdoorsman#lifeisbetteroutside #lookingoutmybackdoor#brenham
