Sequim Sweet Sequim

This spring, I’ve been busy getting real about following my dreams… the ones that involve seeking freedom from urban captivity and planting myself in a greener place. I’ve been spending most of my weekends playing out the long-game of our move to the northwest, ferrying across Puget Sound and trekking across the wild Olympic Peninsula in search of a new habitat to call our own.

Our sights were set on Sequim, Washington – a little town that charmed us with its fields of lavender and uniquely sunny microclimate. It’s located at the center of the Olympic rain shadow, a geographic phenomenon that makes this special place, despite being a stone’s throw from Seattle and some of the wettest temperate rainforests on Earth, receive nearly as little annual rainfall as Los Angeles (!!!)

We’ve been dreaming and scheming to find a home here, and this week we finally move into a funky old house near the Dungeness River with fertile dirt, rich biodiversity, and generally epic potential. Amongst our regular kitchen capers, I expect this setting will bring us many more edible adventures to share… stay tuned for tales of gardening, gathering, and maybe even salmon fishing!

  1. Congratulations. I just met someone who lives not far from there who you might find interesting. Her name is Victoria Redhed Miller.
    Enjoy your time out in the wild world. I recently moved and it is wonderful to have a simpler life. I hope that you find the same joy.

    1. Thank you!! Very interesting to read about Victoria and her homestead – definitely right up my alley, I’ll be following intently! PS: looking forward to your next book too!
