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.

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.

  1. 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!

  7. Gosh I think I’m going to miss the views from your jetty almost as much as you might. It must have been such a huge thought to consider moving away from such beauty on your doorstep, but I hope this change brings you some new wonders and delights. So much history from that jetty…..but here’s to new beginnings!✨💕✨

  10. All the best with the move and new point of view! Seem a change started even before the year end. These are brilliant shots and scenes… and the jetty is the first thing come to mind and most shot of your blog, I think. Keep going from the new location on the bank.

    Happy New Year, Ladyfi

    1. Yes – she’ll be surprised to return to a new house and new area! But she has a lovely habit of settling in at once and she can feel at home wherever she is.

  15. I suspect that with all of the love and awe you and your pooches have showered it with, that jetty will miss you equally. I hope its new family will love its beauty. I know you’ll find beauty wherever you roam.. it’s in you to see. Best of luck in your new abode.

    Even I will miss that special jetty, I think. But I’m sure you will find another nice place at the lake to make lots of beautiful photos. Success with all the moving work and see you later.

  22. Sorry to hear you are leaving the jetty and happy that you have found a great new place for you and your family. I got a promotion last year which was great but had to move from my cubicle with a huge window view of the Arkansas River and the Osage Hills that I had for 12 years for an office with four beige walls. I go back and borrow my window from time to time.

    Have a great New Year for you and your family.

  26. Many congratulations on your new home! We just did exactly the same thing—moved just a bit across town—but to downsize. It’s always intriguing to me how energizing the sense of reinvention is when I’m living or staying in a new place; I hope you’ll find your new adventures a great delight in every way! And a very happy new year to you.

  27. I was a bit behind (life has been busy here, as well) and had to go back and catch up with you.. congrats on your new home! We’ve been in the same place for 17 years, with talk of moving one day. I agree, it would be very hard, a little sad to leave this place. But how wonderful that when one door closes another opens. Wishing you ever happiness as your family settles into your new home!
