WALTER'S 40TH YEAR AT BARNHILL
As of April 2022, Walter has lived at Barnhill Marina for 40 years! Here's what he wrote about it.
We live a different life from the norm.
Not sure any us of want to be,
Swy we’re here 😜😜
We have a lifestyle unlike any who live ashore.
Closer to nature not apart.
Marine life all around.
Birds flying and wading looking for breakfast in shallow low tide of all kinds,
flocks of geese
Tall White Herron, finches, swallow’s and sparrows abound.

(Power boats also?)
The daily empty sand barge leaving early and returning full with gunnels awash.
Morning time is quiet time on my roof with cats and
squirrel and coffee and incredible sunrises.
Sunset is spectacular also with view of
Of coarse the daily train horns but it’s all a part of being here!
The land world tries to encroach but we resist.
Been here 40 years now and hope to stay.
