The Leaping Beauty blog has run its course. Thanks for reading.

I feel that my most unique contribution to the web is my photography, so I'm going to keep my purely photo related blog, Gazelle Portfolio (, up and running. I'm in the process of transferring most of my images already posted on Leaping Beauty over to the other site, and will continue to add new images over time.

Maybe next year I'll start a new blog on my upcoming homesteading adventure, but I'm going to be very busy doing a lot of things I've never done before. Plus, I might not have enough electricity to run a computer at night. What a shame that would be...

best damn webcam sunset I've ever seen

This sunset even looked pretty cool from Portland, but not quite this dramatic. A very fine day to be on the beach in PC.

cob rules ok!

Build it by hand, yourself, and learn how little space and stuff you truly need. Learn also how it feels to live in the earth, rather than on it.

a nice freakin' view

Above, looking NNW to Backyards.

And here, looking NE at Velzyland

We were spoiled utterly rotten for 10 days.
