Earlier this year, several properties in and around Joslin came up for auction and I seriously considered making an offer as I felt that perhaps I should “downsize”. My current property in which I have lived since about 1986, is more than 120 m long and about 15,5m wide. It backs onto the linear park and the creek, it’s often called a river but that is a misnomer. Anyway, eventually I decided whilst I am still physically and mentally agile, that rather than sell my present property I would add a retreat down the back which would look over river from the back fence. I have called it my “music room” as it would certainly be space that I retreat to, to listen to music or to play my recorder. As always the pictures and plans will hopefully demonstrate the concept much more clearly than words.
Lots of glass. Not sure that the finished structure will have a RED roof!
The glass blocks are part of the bathroom/shower recess.
The view from the back!
The next day, Sunday was just as delightful in terms of crisp, clear sunny Autum skies. A flat ride to the bay – Semaphore. The air was as still as a crouching tiger! You can see the beautiful red animal in the foreground
And then there were these magnificent beasts being shunted at the Railway museum.
The train is named “Essington Lewis” a powerful locomotive.
Warm days and the sun rises earlier each day. The garden is in bloom and the chance to get back on the bike
My faithful gold Mitsubishi 380…
Has lasted 10 years and after a spell at the panel beaters to repair several minor car park knocks, a set of new tyres and a major service, has been passed on to my daughter. For $1. Thank god I only had one child.
But, I hear you ask, am I travelling now by Titanium bike? Of course not!
Yes, it is fabulous, a Lexus, or in other words Toyota answer to a BMW or Audi
A burst of pink. Amaryllis Lillies also known as Easter Lillies because they typically flower at or near Easter.
They have suddenly all blossomed in my back yard in the last week.
The other pictures show me crossing the Finish Line at Victor Harbor in the 2016 TDU! Totally unrelated to pink flowers but I had to have something else to boast about.
