Seaside Scenes from our New Lifestyle

We have lived on the Seaside now for just over 4 months now and our daily lifestyle has changed completely. 

The View across the Cowes from my Study Window

With such a lovely Winter, it is the first year that I have only worn short sleeved polo shirts under my jumper.

Our Beach with home behind the Trees.

Just moved in and the Morgan Delivered as the Autumn Sun begins to set

The Beach features in our Daily Dog Walk, as does either the Local Beach Cafe or the 
Beachside Pub, depending on the weather. 

The House is just visible from out on the Beach at Low Tide 

We have to sit outside at the Cafe so on rainy days we go into the pub where dogs are also allowed.

The Cafe

Walking the Beach

More of the Beach with the Wooden Back of the Local Osbourn View Pub protruding into its Beach Garden

On Stormy & Rainy days we go a few miles into the country to a secret woodland we have found with yet another Dog Friendly Pub on the way back who also serve lovely coffee.  

Our Secret Woods

There is so much going on across the water from the Birdlife, to Shipping, Sailing Club Activities and Gorgeous Sunsets on clear days

 Birdlife at the Haven

Racing at the Local Club

Typical Winter Sunset

Silvery Sea

We still have have some lovely countryside and villages to re explore, from our youth, once we can extract ourselves from the beach.
