House Hunting

Today we started the search for property/land up here in Washington by actually speaking to a real estate agent. This is a big deal for me, because I've never done something like this before, something as monumentally adult as actually going through the process of searching for and buying a house or land. It's a big deal for Mr. G as well, because it's going to mean moving away from California for the first time in his life. Luckily, we seem to have found a guy who understands what is meant by "horse property" (eg. they can't be standing in the mud all winter long). He's going to hunt around and see what he can come up with. Our fingers are crossed...

What an adventure. We are always window shopping too, and it's hard to find appropriate land, especially down here in bayou country. We've had terrible hoof problems due to bad land. The best land of all (where we used to keep the steeds) was the sandy barrier isle of Galveston, our former home. Maybe we'll find something upland near where we work, but I doubt it...
Good luck.

Today we looked at our first place: log house, arena, round pen, 7 stall barn, 23 acres...$800,000!!!! Ouch. It's really swell, but about twice as much as we can afford. Tomorrow we'll look at something smaller...
