There is a covered patio with utility sink, and bathroom off the garage, I will have tea and coffee available on the back porch. There should be plenty of things blooming in the garden , if skies are clear a good view of the cascades. There is a undeveloped city park, three blocks from my home that might be of interest to some. Renee"
