    Hi Tim, Nice pictures.
    The nushwetu (side view)looks like a big white whale with its mouth open.
    I like the covered entry on the new house? Nice place to sit out of the sun on those hot August days.

    It’s great that you are keeping us up to date during the winter.

    Wonderful photographs!

    Wish I was there! The pathway also must be quite beautiful. I have my favorite spot and view on it — right at the beginning at the first signs! I love looking out to the right — the wetu there at certain times of the year blends into the background beautifully and is framed perfectly by the trees to the left of the first signs.

    Hope to see you soon!
