A room with a view....



This is my favourite view. It's from my bedroom window and looks over Sandside Bay with the Hoy Hills (and the sleeping dragon) in the background.  In the summer I love waking to this view.

Years ago when I was still dreaming of "moving to the seaside" I used to keep images of the kind of place I would like to live.  I kept this card.




It's almost a mirror image of my view! (Well if you use your imagination). I kept this card for YEARS before I'd even seen Orkney.  In fact when we viewed the house the upstairs windows were boarded up to keep the pigeons out, so it was only when the windows were put in during the renovation that I even SAW the view like this.  Maybe somewhere in my subconscious, the memory was hidden and that's why I chose this house.

I even used to have a tabby cat - dear old Fitzi-cat, sadly no longer here.  But I have the gloriously bold and sassy Button to admire the view with me......

  5. Sian - this is a lovely story. I have a picture in my minds' eye of the place I want to move to. We'll see if I get there. Congratulations on your house, your view, your small island. Love your posts.
