the house on the bluff


Living here, perched on the edge of the bluff, you can watch the sea coming and going all day. You can watch the container ships, the tankers, the fishing boats and cruise ships following the tide in and out of the harbour. You can watch the harbour seals and porpoises, the gulls and eagles trolling the shallow shores. You can watch everything that moves all the way to Nova Scotia on fine days, but on foggy days you might not even see the beach. And every kind of weather, be it rain or sun, snow or storm, will beat against your windows. And as the tide rises and falls and marks the rhythm of the days and seasons, you will be always be there, watching.

    • Unfortunately I don’t know who lives there, but wouldn’t it be fun to visit! Fireplaces aren’t all that common here — too many wood frame houses, I suppose — although a lot of people have wood stoves. I bet you could still feel the wind in the wintertime, even with three fireplaces! Thanks for dropping by, yasserbooley!
