Late summer view

Summer views  @  joceesfarm.blogspot.com


My destination was the seat on top of the hill.  This is the high point on the farm.  It's a bit of a walk, and certainly warms you up, but it's worth the effort.  My Dad and I towed, dragged and muscled this seat up here years ago.  It was quite a job, not sure how we did it, more good luck and will power than brains I think!

Nearly there and I'm ready for a sit down.  It is a great place to sit and think ..... or to empty your mind and just enjoy.

The views are great - this is looking to the left,

And sitting back and looking straight ahead.  Sometimes a crazy idea is worth the effort.

  2. Hi, Greetings from Malaysia. I think your's and your dad's effort getting the chair up there is worth it. I would love to be able to enjoy the view from where the seat is...they are just lovely.

  4. That is a great view and what a seat to sit on. I kept looking at your first picture wondering what in the world the red thing was and finally figured out that it was an arrow you put on the pic.

    I love how you are on the opposite end of the world and thus are going through summer.
