A Walk around Mt Maunganui [Mauao]

The day started with grand ambitions to scale a Mountain, she's a reasonable size towering an impressive 231 metres skywards. These were changed when darkening skies were forming right behind us as we headed towards the start of my walk. Thoughts of a less wet ending to this story might occur if I went around… Continue reading A Walk around Mt Maunganui [Mauao]

Housesitting by the Chichester Harbour

What a glorious start to our summer in the UK. Sunny days and balmy nights. With a prediction by some to be the hottest summer since 2006, which so happened to be the first time we came over here as a couple! June also signified the start of another housesit in a new area of… Continue reading Housesitting by the Chichester Harbour

Neighbourhood Walks: Windlesham Arboretum

With a quick pull of the curtains,  a sleepy voice replies with a non-committal, "Not too bad, not too good.  With about 50/50 for showers by the look of it". Without a second thought, it was settled, we were… Continue reading A Saunter down GRAND AVENUE

Neighbourhood Walks – Iztuzu Beach & more

In Dalyan. Spring, not Summer. Warmish not HOT. More locals out walking than tourists. One more cat, albeit only a temporary visitor, had been added to the gang. Of course, you would remember the gang from our last visit here in the Summer of 2017. This visit could not be more opposite in weather conditions.… Continue reading Neighbourhood Walks – Iztuzu Beach & more

Neighbourhood walks – Painswick

Barty dislikes the postie (he won't divulge why), pigeons and Possum [as in Possum, the cat because he hisses]. Basically,  just a few moving objects starting with "P".  Walking doesn't start with a "P" which is a good thing.  As we love to go for walks! Especially ones on a reasonably warm and sunny day.… Continue reading Neighbourhood walks – Painswick
