One might truly say that Cousin Lee paid a flying visit even though arriving by road?
WOW! That’s a pawsome place, Col! I first have to get my swimming diploma before I can come out there 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 ❤
One does need to be cautious about stepping outside around here or you go splosh! 2 U 2!

Wonderful views of the area in which you live and the results of all your handiwork at the house and garden.
Beautiful views from up there. 🙂
Makes me yearn to take up paragliding!
Why does every house seem to have a small swimming pool when there is that glorius beach and ocean just seemingly a few minutes walk away?
Could almost pass as the beautiful northern beaches of Sydney, but not quite as magical. Lovely neverthe less. XD
*loftily* My dear fellow, the pool is there to get the salt water off after visiting the beach!
Sensibly, though, it is a lot easier to take a few steps from home into the cool relief than it is to get all hot and bothered with the walk/and or finding parking. At least the latter, unlike UK, is free.
Having no idea of what’s going on in England/UK, except from what I read in the papers of hear on the news I shall lose no sleep, here in Australia I can assure you that finding parking within cooee of the beach is impossible, but as I can neither swim and don’t particularlylike the beach it doesn’t worry me one bit. or 40 of the last 45 years I lived on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and actually I’ve been on the sand twice I do believe, might be less 🙂
Okay, since I didn’t understand your answer to that last comment/question, I’ll ask again: was that a drone? Does Lee operate her own drone? How cool is that! I loved seeing the different shapes of swimming pools in homes so close to the seaside. 🙂
It is, indeed, a state-of-the-art drone she brought with her, and she has become completely expert at flying it. It takes off out of her hand, and she is expert at making it so immobile, even only a couple of metres up, that it is as if she has lifted it onto an invisible shelf. The on-board camera, as you see, is really good.

I am incredibly jealous.
And when he leaves he’ll be making tracks although not travelling by train? Anyway, hope his visit isn’t causing waves …
He is a she currently, and stuck doggedly to motor transport. Her new German Shepherd puppy was in train, but not as in railway.
Oops, sorry, my bad. (As — I’m assured — is said on the street …)
My bath? (That’s what it would be in Afrikaans, pronounced ‘may bot’.)
I think I do miss your country now. Oh for a view….
At least we still have views, even if now over the tops of rooftops and trees. The sea always has something of interest to offer.
How nice to have an aerial view of your house and a beautiful view of the Bluff.
Lee certainly left a wonderful memento of her visit!
Lovely weather for flying over a beautiful stretch of coast!
It was, but I would love to have the same view of my childhood home area — The Heads.
Absolutely, though I think today it will be a lot less inspiring due to all the buildings that have sprung up around there the last few years especially.
I recall it as having twenty to thirty houses, tops. Now, a view on Google Earth fills me with horror. As for Sparrerbosch! I wandered there when it was absolute wilderness, and when we camped there once we had leopard spoor round our tent the next morning. I met that kitty face-to-face, once. He decided against snacking on me.
I can imagine what a terrifying situation being face-to-face with a Cape Leopard must have been at the time, but what a wonderful memory it must be now!
Funnily enough, I was more startled and awed than afraid. He was at the edge of the bush, camouflaged, and only when I got really close did he move slightly and suddenly come into focus. He looked disdainfully at me, turned unhurriedly so it seemed one half was going while the other half was still coming, and simply melted into the undergrown. Nobody would believe me until one was sighted some years later at Coney Glen.— even closer to The Heads. Sheep and cattle ranged across those hills, but the leopards never touched them. I think those living close to human settlements have developed a survival instinct to leave farm animals alone and not to come to the notice of people in any way. Buck and baboons are their prey.
You must be one of only a tiny handful of people to have seen a Knysna leopard – What a privilege!
In an outride to the cliffs between Heads and Plet the owner showed us an overhanging branch where she had seen a leopard lazily watch a whole string of (oblivious) riders pass beneath him a few weeks before. Her heart was in her mouth waiting for a pounce!
is it a bird? is it a plane? Is it a drone? Watter wonderlike speelding en ai, julle woon darem in ‘n pragtige omgewing.
Die omgewing is seker mooi, met die see een kant en sportsgronde op die ander. Ook, is daar’n keuse van drie ‘malls’ met sowat drie minute reistyd.
