Summer's around the corner

It’s starting to get warm here as summer grows closer with each moment and the days break into the 90s. The first beads of sweat have definitely been found in the sun of the gardens, although they haven’t quite made their way to the tranquil life of the shady hostel front porch. With heat here, comes the ongoing swimming bliss of the pool and the lake, which each already feel incredible. In preparation for this year’s chapter of summer, we drained the entire pool this past week and gave it a thorough cleaning, rescuing 100s of gigantic tad poles and minnows. Two all-star hostellers, Daniel and Royce, were on the front lines of the operation. Thank you guys a ton for your help! We also had a baby chick hatch from one of our chickens about 8 days ago. Quite a treat! It’s just recently made its way from the coup to the grounds of the hostel as mother follows closely by its side. Everyone really enjoyed the breathing and meditation workshop of this past weekend with one of our previous managers, Rob Jacoby, and further details of our Memorial Day artist retreat are just around the corner. Until we’re blessed with your presence here,

May the Forest be with You
