Our weekend away was a much-enjoyed break.  It is relaxing to dash hither and yon in search of sights and sites and to get some fresh air.  The air was fresh, indeed.  compared with our still-shirtsleeves-in-the-evening coastal conditions.  It made for waking up far more thoroughly than I do at home, when I took my morning plunge in the B & B swimming pool.  Our host, huddled in a parka, looked at me strangely for some reason.

We returned home to find that we were about to receive another switch-off – or not receive electricity.  Our ever-increasing collection of solar-charged-battery-powered lights came into service again and lights have only been restored at an hour which is past my bedtime. 

I shall now pop in a pair of pleasant preliminary pictures picked out as a preview to pique your interest in a further pleasurable presentation.  These are taken from near the B & B entrance.

  1. Really gorgeous surrounding. I’m not looking forward to experiencing load shedding when we come over there next week. Everything works here. 🙂

  2. My eyes! My ears! All that alliteration accentuates any ailments I suffer adversely from 🙂

    Glad you had a much needed break… shame about the lights… was it the breaker (oops, did I really say that!) 😀

  4. Love that first picture. Sounds so restful, even if you were a bit inconvenienced upon your return. That’s life, I suppose! 🙂

    Looks beautiful. Just the job for a bit or R & R. and peace and quiet.

      Yeh, well, MBH’s idea of R & R and peace and quiet is to dash around like a ball-mad terrier after everyone in the family has flung a few in different directions.

  6. Your first pic looks a bit wintry. What season is it there?
    Have you thought of emigrating to somewhere with a normal power supply?
