Sweet Shores.

How nice to be back ; we have settled into our new home in the small Welsh seaside village of Aberporth wonderfully but there's been one snag; we just couldn't pick up broadband. I have constantly been on the phone to British Telecom, our Internet providers and they said it was this, then that !!! Today it was sorted and they hadn't built our profile properly so our hub couldn't pick it up !! However never mind it's done now.

Today's hub is pretty short but I just wanted to say that I was back and will get round to reading all your hubs too throughout the remainder of today and tomorrow !!!!!

I hope you enjoy the photos of the havens which surround our new home.

Sleepy

Those first moments

Awakening sleeping dreams

Each limb stretched anticipation

A life anew steeped in surreal bliss

Top toeing through life’s great beauty

Almost childlike in thought

Each cosy nook

Sleepy.

Treasures

Oh so simple

Quaint but truly priceless

Share high teas of scones, jam and cream

That simplistic charm so olde worlde

Come now step into yesteryear

Yes come and share with me

These wonderful

Treasures.

Sweet shores

As time stands still

My heart beats in true bliss

Like that very first so sweet kiss

That ebbing and flowing music of mine

Brimming over with clear passion

Oh how I've found my place

As time stands still

Sweet shores.


Some more photos from our new home.

These photos look so much like York Harber, Maine, USA! Same ocean, same cove and beach, etc. From my own love of York and York Beach, I know already how much you will love your new abode. John 14:23 is a key to the happiness of your home.

Welcome back Eiddwen I am glad that you like your new home and everything has worked out for you.

Several things have changed while you were gone and you will be asking others about them.

I love the photos, and your words have described your home and surroundings to the "nitty-gritty" - so to speak. I voted it up, shared it and pinned it.
