The View

Someone, a recent follower obviously, asked what the view from my house was like. Well this is the view as I sit at my breakfast/lunch/everything else bar.

  1. I don't know why, but I am deprived of your view. However, I do remember that it is particularly fine!

    1. Thanks Cro. I'm not sure why it didn't appear either but it got lost somewhere. I've remedied that now.

    2. Yup, I can see it now. Beautiful.

  2. Lovely to see this wonderful view again. What a way to start the day! It must be wonderful to watch the changes of the season and days regardless of the weather.

    1. Serenata it is a wonderful way to start the day at this time of year. Unfortunately in midwinter it will be nearly 9am before the view becomes visible properly although on a really crisp, clear morning, the sunrise over the mainland mountains is spectacular.

  3. Who was this curious "follower"? I suspect you just wanted an opportunity to show off your wonderful sea view again.

    1. I can't recall, YP, although it must be someone recent because, as you know, I never tire of showing off the view.

    1. Kylie I think 'wow' every time the view changes. It's just a question of how I intone the 'wow' to myself.

    1. It is Maywyn. I have been fortunate to live with beautiful view for most of my life. I never take them for granted.

  6. Beautiful as ever, and your view is never exactly the same as the sky is always changing (and your garden etc too, with the seasons of the year).

    1. Absolutely so, Monica. If you'd seen the storm a few days ago or the rain today (after the sunny start) one might be surprised at the change.

  7. Absolutely gorgeous! We have the bush with pink blooms (see my current post) but not the water.

    1. Yes. Your bush was a Camellia which I don't think would grow here. This a Lavatera surrounded by Japanese Anemones.

    1. Heron I can't imagine anyone not loving that view although some people prefer towns.

  9. What a glorious view, I'm very envious.

    1. Cath at least you are not far from the countryside and the water.

  10. Ahhh, there it is! As beautiful as ever. I wonder ... could you capture the view over the Minch as evening falls and the lights on the ships in the strait come into view? You'd need to include a glass of two of red in the scene.

    1. Pauline just occasionally the red light of the sunset (which is on the other side of the house) lights up the mainland hills. If I manage to come across a photo I'll see about adding the glasses of red!

    1. Amy with the beauty that surrounds you, it is I who should be envious.

  12. Sounding repetitive here, but what else can I say that it is very beautiful and I don't mind seeing it again, at different times of day and year and with different weather.
    A good view from one's windows does so much for a home, doesn't it (as Pollyanna would confirm from when she was first put into a stuffy attic room at her aunt's house!).

    1. Isn't that exactly the case Meike. I so love her outlook on life. I can't believe that being called a Pollyanna was considered derogatory. I'd have thought it a compliment....and I'm a man.

  13. And a beautiful, peaceful view it is...good for the soul...so calming. :)

    1. Lee it's certainly good for a lot of things: body and 'soul'.

  14. I have a sudden craving for wine and cheese and smoked salmon...

    1. With a little asparagus soup, perhaps, Mrs S?

  15. That is one fabulous view. It must be wonderful to watch it change with the different skies. I guess it could get cold and windy at times. I'm with the last comment open the wine and find some cheese and crackers.

    1. Diane it is wonderful to watch it change. Because of the 'heat haze' (a rather loose use of the phrase) you can't see the mainland mountains. Perhaps it's time for me to show some of my more recent followers just what spectacular views I do have.

  16. I have often admired your photos of the view but never realised that you can see it while you are putting away the toast and cornflakes! Wonderful. Idyllic.
