    Your_Message: Hi Martin,
    We've been home over a week now but we're still at Fourpeaks in our heads and hearts. We had the most amazing week at New Camp and exploring your beautiful property. It was so peaceful and relaxing and the time we spent there renewed our spirits and rejuvenated our bodies. My husband hasn't been that relaxed in years!
    We read, we strolled and hiked, we slept in, we meditated, we talked, we cooked, and we sat on the porch taking in the view and skyscape by day and stars by night, listening to the birds, squirrels, chipmunks, owls and even the coyotes a few times. I warmed water for outdoor bathing which was an exhilarating experience. Robert found a spot at the creek to wash himself - he said it felt primal and enlivening - I just call it crazy! b-r-r-r-r! It's really something how easy it is to get used to using so little water every day -- we've become very conscious of how wasteful we were in "real" life and are doing with less now. Also, though we weren't huge TV watchers to begin with, we now watch it less and enjoy the quiet more.
    Gracie was in her glory as she chased chipmunks and scouted the trails for us. I can't remember having a harder time leaving any other place.
    Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and especially for taking time to show us the remnants of the ice mountain and the ceremonial rock piles built so very long ago. Fascinating stuff. We hope George is all healed up and free from his lampshade collar so he can cuddle again. We will definitely be back. I'll be sending photos right along.
    With our best wishes for continued good health and enjoying a life you love in your splendid paradise,
    Mary & Robert Moore!
