or Why I Love my Wee House Beside the Sea
I am on my holidays.... not anywhere exotic, just up on the North East coast of Scotland in a wee fishing village called Findochty (Finechty...)
I bought this little house as a fixer-upper a couple years ago, and after extensive work it is almost done. It has been almost done for around 18months because I ran out of cash and relocated to over 200 miles away. But it is warm and dry and it's a wee haven of tranquillity.
The weather is grey and overcast;
rain falling occasionally - but it's still beautiful.
It's still great walking on the beach -
watching the waves crash on the rocks
smelling the salty air
and generally letting my cares away on the tide
It's good to get some sunshine
but it isn't essential
The change in routine, and the chance to unwind and relax
these are the things that make the holiday
I am on holiday
and I am feeling GOOD!!
