It is so nice to have my cousin, Hilary, and her partner, Sun-Kyu, visiting for a couple of days.
So neat to get to know the young woman she has become from the 16 year old I remember.
Both she and her partner are interested in local eating, farming, and also foraging when they can.
After visiting the swimming hole near us yesterday they noticed some mushrooms under a grove of evergreens and we walked down later to gather. These are golden chanterelles.
Emily brought along a basket and filled it will treasures she found along the way.
Their visit reminds Mike and I of how blessed we are, as we see things through their eyes - the beauty of the area, the animals and gardens we are able to care for, and for our business which gives us the flexibility to visit with them.
