Jetty, my jetty!

By the time you read this, we will have received the keys to our new (and bigger) house and I’ll be busy moving.

We’re not moving far – only 2.5 km away – but the lake won’t be right on my doorstep. No more rushing out in sun and rain to record my favourite jetty.

Alone on pier.jpg

We will still be living near the same lake (but further south) – it’s about a kilometre walk away from the new house. So, I hope to find new views to photograph and share with you.

This jetty has been such an inspirational part of the last sixteen years and I’ll be sad to move – but happy that we have found something more suited to the needs of our family now.

The next week or so will be very busy, so please forgive me if I don’t get round to visiting you. In the meantime, please do keep in touch with me via Facebook. You’ll find me here: Lady Fi on Facebook.

  2. All I can say is your move will simply give you another point of view for your camera lens. You sound excited but a little bit wistful about your move. We now live in a big house with 18 oak trees – too much maintenance for us, so we aim to downsize, possibly this year. Best wishes as you make the transition, Lady Fi!
