Hi Fellow Travellers,
Well today is planned to be a laid back put your feet up and enjoy the scenery type of day. We do have to look after a few things though. We cannot seem to get the gas going to the stove and there is no hot water. We have contact information for the brother of the owner, so will try to get things working. This morning, we found that breakfast comes with our unit, at least if we go and pick it off the vine. There is a banana palm just off the deck and there are bananas almost ready for the eating. It doesn’t get any fresher than that. A quick check of the little restaurant found it open but the Internet was not working, we were told. They didn’t seem to know when that problem would be corrected. If this doesn’t get corrected soon, we will drive back down the hill and find someplace we can steal a signal from so I can get this important information to you.
Our big stone deck is wonderful. Sitting out there, you become keenly aware of the lack of city noises, bugs and the wind whispering through the pines that surround us. Trees moving constantly with the gentle breeze bring new meaning to the concept of perpetual motion. An endless variety of bird songs accompany the many species as they busily flit from tree to tree, going about their daily routines. Most of what we see are foreign to us but the variety of size and color is seemingly endless. The big billowing white clouds are so close that you can seemingly reach up and touch them as they race across the blue sky to an undetermined destination. There is such an atmosphere here!
Sunsets are directly in front of us. Its as if someone had planned the location of this deck just to take them in. It is hard during the day to get a picture that would capture the city in the distance due to the haze, but at night the lights of the city make it easier to get an idea of what is there.
With all the natural beauty of this place, I hope you can appreciate why the post today is short. Tomorrow we will be doing a small real estate tour. I will let you know all about it then.
