Settling in Sooke
Well, first let me introduce myself. My name is Doug and I am originally from Wisconsin, Milwaukee to be exact. At the age of 46 I have moved with Dixon to Vancouver Island in gorgeous British Columbia, Canada. We decided that a change was needed. So we applied for permanent resident status, packed up the household when that was granted and drove to Sooke, BC in a fully loaded U-haul. We arrived the beginning of October and are still in the process of getting settled in to our new home. We have a gorgeous hillside home on two acres overlooking part of Sooke Harbor but mostly a view across The Juan de Fuca Strait to the Olympic mountains in Washington state. NEVER in a million years could anyone have told me that I would be living in a glorious place like this, but here I am and still pinching myself. Along with the great home we have a wonderful hillside garden in the front yard and the centerpiece of that is a brand new greenhouse that the previous owners never had a chance to finish. SO, here I am, blogging, and I will be looking for advice on West Coast decorating and greenhouse gardening.
Thanks for tuning in and I'll be back as often as I can.
