Heading towards the past

Even though I love the view and the proximity to the sea of our little house, I'm finding it too small. Everything I do is seen by the neighbours. Merlot barks and disturbs them. Teenagers come home late and wake them up and I haven't even started cutting stone yet!!
So we are looking at a 4 acre orchard with bed and breakfast accomodation in the garden. Room for my sculptures and to breathe and we can live off the land when the financial world comes crashing down.
Just like my hippy days

Hi Dave!

i have to say: this doesn't come as a big surprise to me.
I hope you'll find a great new home! This bed&breakfast sounds good. When we're ever in the neighbourhood again....;)

Hey Gerben, good to hear from you. The orchard is only about 10 k's from here so we can still have the best of both worlds. Have a look at www.mercuryorchard.co.nz and you would be welcome.
Love to Mirjam

No matter how hard you try uncivilised civilisation always catches up. I'm feeling a tad hemmed in too.

LM - and the only way you can change that is move on which I have never been afraid to do
