New Fence and Seating Area 4

Our own little patch

I’ve almost finished the new fence I erected at the weekend. It’s always difficult to envisage how these things will feel once they are done, but it’s actually really nice. We knew what it would look like, but the feeling it creates is more difficult to predict. We were a little worried that it would make the garden...

Winter Takes its Toll

I’ve always had a vision of planting lots of Cordylines (also known as Manx or Cabbage Palms) along the road here as I think it would enhance the seaside feel with a slightly tropical touch.  We’ve planted a few ourselves, other neighbiours already have some and we’ve even bought some as presents for other locals...

Wind Jinx

It’s just not fair. Since buying my speed kit, there just hasn’t been any suitable wind to use it. This week looked promising with NE’s forecast all week, but as the days have gone by there just hasn’t been enough. It has got close from time to time with the odd gust but never filled...

Jinx of the New Toys

Typical isn’t it, I get a load of new windsurfing kit in my quest to hit 40 knots before I’m 40 and then there’s a conmplete lack of wind forecast. I’ve just taken a look at the forecast on Windguru for the next week and there isn’t a single star showing. Oh well, I’ll just...
