Added life value

More than five years ago we were celebrating the fact that our island school would remain. Yet, we are still under threat of losing it. 
We want to share island life with other people who may find it attractive, and so last autumn we organised an Open Day where we showcased houses for rent and for sale. There was a market with handicraft businesses from Made on Sandøya as well as a café.
The event proved a success, we gained a lot of media coverage, generating marketing for Sandøya.
We need more inhabitants, and I am certain (and hope) more people will fall in love with the island and make the life changing steps to move here.
In the photo Malou is trying out her bike. She is due to start this year, and she has started riding the bike by herself to school.
For me that is added life value.

Beach combing

What a great way to spend a sunny morning...
Picking rubbish off the beach. We had planned this for a while, 
and the children were really excited to see what treasures the 
winterstorms had left behind.
Coming back we had fun painting and gluing our findings.
'The drumming sand angel', as Malou aptly described it, and a
signpost for her garden house, were the creative and fun outcomes
of our hunt.

Still here...

Manier years have passed and life changing events have happened.
We still do easter egg hunts. This photo is from last years traditional
event in our garden, and soon there`s another to come.
Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to sharing more on island life,
food and creative projects.
