Thursday View

We are linking up with Jane for the Thursday view.

Except, it was such a lovely afternoon yesterday - we thought we'd take some photos early...

Lupe sitting on the dining room window ledge - enjoying the last hour of sunshine.
Though it was still very cold with the chilly wind! 

The view from the window seat next to our dining table.

The sitting room window.

View from our guest room's back window...

And from the side window.

The view from our bedroom this morning...

Our window ledge is where Lupe enjoys being in the summer. 
He likes showing off to folks coming & going down to the beach!

Have a lovely Thursday.

Hahaha! We wouldn't mind a white out... Just for a change!

Thanks Kath - but for most folks who stay, it's the quiet & the darkness (no street lights) that they always comment on.

Thanks Catherine - Lupe just loves sitting on the windowsills... Or wherever he can find a sunny spot!

Rural Life

We live in a small hamlet of 14 households - all on one lane, but spread out & mainly detached, apart from the 3 barn conversions across from us. There have been a number of changes in the six years we have lived here, people moving in & out, houses renovated & extended, but for us - the worst thing is that the last few newcomers are city people. They have all spent thousands of pounds modernising their homes & turning them into fortresses. Fences & gates have been erected, security lights & alarms fitted...
I suppose most folks will think that they are being sensible, but it's changing the way our little place looks & feels & to me it seems that these modern extras will invite unwanted attention - it suggests there's something worth taking.What was once a simple, quaint little hamlet is fast becoming yet another exclusive part of rural Cornwall.  Only 3 of the 14 households are Cornish & they are all related, the rest (apart from us) are well …

Preparing For Our Next Adventure

Here are some photos of the barn we are moving into at the weekend.

We will be sharing the main barn with folks on working holidays.

The view from the barn across the land.

The barn is made from straw bales.

The end of the main barn and the smaller attached barn used for holiday lets/retreats.

The outdoor solar shower.
The compost loos.

One end of the main barn with our bedroom on the right.

The other end of the barn -  with kitchen, dining and living space...

And this wonderful large stove which is perfect for us.

We are very excited to be on the moving on to a new adventure and closing the door to the little house by the sea.

Love Kay and Sime xx
