#178 - Princess Bella-Flor

A sleepy fairy tale about a Celtic princess and the king who will do anything to marry her.

Our local bear family spent a morning sunning themselves and eating lunch over on the hillside across the creek. Watching them got me thinking about how much life up here can be like the grownup version of the adventures of Christoper Robin and Winnie the Pooh and I made a video about that with some footage of the bears. If you'd like to see it, it's up on TikTok at or on Instagram at
