The Rains of Fall have arrived...

The fall rains have commenced and our seasonal streams are starting to come alive. The precipitation is right on schedule and that is reassuring during this season of uncertainty in so many aspects of our day-to-day lives. A walk in the early morning mist by the sea is balm for the soul. Alabaster white spray crashing against jet black rock might well be seen as a parable reflecting nature’s strength and permanence. Oystercatchers foraging among the rocks, geese overhead heading south for the winter, and the greening of the grasses are all signs that the rhythms of nature are as they should be.

Living here in The Sea Ranch, we are, of course, not isolated from the outside world. We have access to all of the modern communication systems that are available anywhere and we are upgrading them to keep pace with what is going on elsewhere in the outside world. The difference in our situation as compared with those living in large metropolitan areas is that we live our lives in close proximity to nature. We can walk from our front door immediately into the natural world and even if we do not consciously remark on it, the effect is a reassuring antidote to much of the anxiety that afflicts modern society.

Couple this unique living experience with solid economic value and you begin to understand the advantages of owning a piece of this paradise. All through the Ranch, older homes are being remodeled, new homes are being constructed, and a few homes are on the market. Give me a call when you next have a day or two that you can spend here and I will be happy to show you how you can become a part of this community.

Oystercatchers know their waves very well...
