Hi, from Orcas Island, WA
« on: August 02, 2008, 08:02:27 PM »
Moved here a little over a year ago, am still trying to figure out how best to utilize the 4.5 acres that we have.  Very interested in Japanese structures and gardens.  Lived for 2-3 years in Okinawa when I was 10 - 13 years old and always remembered the beauty of the island, this was in late 60's.  Can't wait to get started on all the projects that I have in mind.

Mark,  I googled your Island for a map and photos, and you have a perfect setting for a Japanese Garden.  All that water, mountain, and the lush vegetation for a backdrop.  I am green with envy.  I will look forward to hearing about your projects.
