My new home.....


Life is still hectic and it's Autumn/Winter so my energy levels are not great, but am loving my new home.  Stunning sea views within a short distance.   View from house over a quieter pool of water, that has very low tides exposing mud flats.  This will be wonderful in Spring/Summer - and it faces West so great sunsets too!  Anyway a few scenic shots to keep you going!

Wild Atlantic ocean!

The front of the house has a calmer view across the pool and mudflats....

The house comes with two "sitting tenants" - 2 outside cats.  No I am not sure how Button will cope - but given we are near a fast road and she is mostly a house cat now, she won't be allowed to roam far anyway.  She's quite arthritic so prefers lazing in the sun to hunting these days.  A "catio" will be built to contain her and we will see how that goes.

Meanwhile here are Ginge I and Ginge II.  Ginge II is very shy and I have only seen his head up in the rafters of the garage.  Ginge I is bolder.  They get supplementary feeding as do many farm cats.  And judging by the remains nearby their main diet are mice, rats, and rabbits.  Though sadly will also include birds....sigh... They are about 5 years old, neutered and were born nearby so are well established.

Here is Ginge I

And a head shot of Ginge II

There has been a lot of wind (and rain - oh goodness a lot of rain) so the sea was quite busy today.


  1. Beautiful views from your new home! So glad you are enjoying it.

    I am very glad to hear that things are working out for you. May they continue to do so.

  3. It must warm your heart to know that you have made the right decision.

  4. Stunning! Hope that Button will enjoy it all, too.

  5. It all looks lovely, including the cats, and especially the sea.

  6. Your new home is lovely. I am glad those cats were neutered before you got them. I can't imagine moving and leaving pets behind. We got very attached to our barn cats until predators moved into the area. Now all the cats but one are inside. The farmer is busy trying to tame the last one. All the cats here have been dumped by others.

  7. Very nice views indeed, and those feline rascals will keep you entertained.

  8. I hope you are well along with Button and settling into your new home. All the best. Alas our barn cat has moved on. The farmer thinks he hung out here to feed himself up on the mice and the food we provide and then went in search of a female. All our cats are fixed asap.
