A view by maggiemae

A view

My exercise on a my bike took me down past the house that I grew up in. I must take a photo as it has quality written all over it! The views were tremendous and this was just one. The house here is not the one but another lovely two -storey one with a view.

Three good things:
1. Enough grey day to look at some old movies on the TV.
2. John pruned the wisteria by the front door before it broke into the roof and guttering!
3. Looking back into our lives and those close to us, are we happy with what we achieved? Hubby says yes in spite of some disappointments! I say yes, in spite of not persevering with some things!
What a view!

Great view. So nice to grow up in a lovely house with a view.

@gijsje I just realised that really, we took it for granted, Bep! Only as an adult did we think how privileged we were!

I love the dreamy quality of your photo. Wonderful day to spend the day reminiscing about your childhood and your life with John

@grammyn Thanks Katy - I seem to have a knack of asking the right questions - its all about getting others to talk! Thats if I want to use that knack!

@lynnz Most houses in Oamaru have a great view of the sea - built in hills surrounding the harbour, Lynn!

Oh how interesting, what a beautiful area to grow up in.

@casablanca - yes it was - walk to the beach, walk to the public swimming pool, the library, the town! So lucky yet I didn't appreciate it!

A lovely view and a beautiful shot. Nice to live so close to the beach. I live about one mile away and I go swimming every day of summer in the open sea. Don't tell me to go swim in a pool because I wouldn't go.

Btw I went to a flamenco show when we were there last year and I posted a few shots back then. This year I didn't bother to go again.

@sangwann I think I remember them. Once is probably enough - all that wailing!

@ninaganci So would I, Nina! Now we live in a small brick well renovated home a few km away - no view but warm and efficient!

Looks like a beautiful house to grow up in. A great photo and love your three things too. We all have those things that want to get onto our roofs and into our gutters too. Fun day inside watching tv. It is Summer and it is hot here though we cool off at night. Almost 5am and I have opened our doors that have screens as well and turned on the whole house fan to cool off our house naturally without air conditioning. Saves $$ and cools it a lot better. Strange from here to there the time of the year for us all. Hope you and John are doing well. Hanging in here, not easy and has tried us in ways I never thought possible and tough, tough to work for hubby while being sick and having the horrid reaction to the medication he took the two days prior to Father's Day. Never take this med if you can avoid it, Amiodarone. Almost killed Dan and luckily he did not take another pill though we knew he had more than he could handle when he stoped this heart medication. Radiation treatment starts on July 23 and he is off work for 11 weeks. Will hopefully help him through this treatment. Be well and take care. FAV
