Happy New Year!

"If the only prayer we ever say in our life is 'Thank You,' that will be enough."

-Meister Eckhart

It is with that sentiment in mind that we say "Thank You" to our families, friends and guests and patrons of Crippen Creek that have encouraged us and supported us in this wonderful adventure. May you all be blessed with a very Happy New Year!

The year ended with one of the wildest winters we can recall since living in the Pacific Northwest. Almost 2 feet of snow fell here in Skamokawa and although it created an awesome winter wonderland, it proved to be a bit much for an area that is unaccustomed to it. It took hours of digging, pushing and towing to get cars in and out of here. Our beloved hoop house collapsed under the weight of the snow and the stovepipe on our barn's wood stove came crashing down in an avalanche of melting snow.

We are grateful for wonderful neighbors like Al McClain who dug us out.
