Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Back From The Beach...

75 degrees - 8:37 pm - hot, hot, hot...

Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a few weeks but... we’ve been at the beach!  I’ve mentioned before {click here} that every now and then we like to get off the mountain and head to our family beach property on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington State.  So we headed to the beach for an end of the summer get away, and had a blast!  

Here are a few pictures from out beach getaway...

a group of us drove out onto the beach
to let the kids get some beach play time in

the kids had a blast playing on the beach and in the water

while driving along on the beach, I was amazed at how many Pelicans we saw

we always have to stop in at our favorite ice cream shop Scoopers

the kids enjoyed riding their bikes {after the first couple of days, I finally
gave up the fight of trying to keep shoes on them, so most of the time they
were running around barefoot and having fun}

everyone enjoyed wathcing the bunnies and deer wander around the place

who needs 4-wheelers when you have riding
lawn mowers?!?!  {and no, the lawn mower
blades were not turning when the kids
were riding them!}

of course it just isn't camping with out S'mores and a rip roaring fire

and boy oh boy were the ocean sunsets gorgeous!!!
