The Mountain Plot


Today was the day…

We got up early and walked to the beach. On getting home we had coffee and rested. I shopped, cooked and David came for lunch. In the late afternoon we went up the mountain behind us to see how Rob was coming along with clearing his land. Getting any form of structure up there is going to be a mission, but that’s what we said of our house. Where there’s a will there’s a way. He has cleared a space which is flattish. It is next to a grove of trees which is very pretty.

The view from up there is pretty spectacular…

It’s going to be interesting to see it go up, if it does.

I also got some work done and now I am powering down for a quiet evening.

Psalm 59:17

To You, O my Strength, I will sing praises; for God is my defense, my God of mercy.

The best is yet to come.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,
