I’m sure there are “cabin communities” all over the world, but there is something special about living out here in ours. I know I’ve talked a little bit about appreciating neighbors here before, but I really do feel lucky having the neighbors we do. For a young couple, with a baby, having a community that is so willing to help has been a blessing. We wouldn’t have made it this far without them.
Our neighbors have gifted us everything from food to advice to books to a rent free place to stay when we needed it. We’ve been invited to meals, helped up the access with our stuff, and rescued from the beach. Just recently we had another neighbor help us get our winter stores to our property since the 4 wheeler is out of commission, and another neighbor let us park our truck at their place so we were above the tides and only need to walk a half mile to our place instead of 7 miles. We’ve even been gifted rain gear and a boat!

As soon as we have the ability to offer up to our neighbors we want to follow all the wonderful examples we’ve had out here. Hopefully we do as good a job in being welcoming as those who’ve welcomed us.

Thanks to wonderful neighbors, our two most pressing issues caused by my wreck with the 4 wheeler are solved, now we can concentrate on getting it and my teeth fixed. Hopefully all we need to do is replace the rims I broke and we should be good to go. We’re really pushing to try and make it through winter out here. Fingers crossed!
