TWENTY-SEVEN AND LOOKING PRETTY

It was like, love at first sight…

She is 27 years old and she stands beautifully…

Finally decided to hit the button on this one…

It is a holiday house currently owned by a 70 year old doctor and his wife.

We saw it a week ago and decided almost instantly that we wanted her…

We saw the house again…and the feeling was the same…

The land size… 820 square meters compared to about 150 square meters for an average house in the city core…

The location… about 20 kilometers from the university…

I intend to continue cycling to work with my mountain bike.

The Japanese people were shocked to hear this…

Travel time is expected to be one hour per way…

There are five uphill slopes so there is going to be some sweat…

A stone’s throw away is the northern most point of Shikoku island…

And, a well known temple in a cave housing the Goddess of Mercy…

Five to ten minutes walk from the house is the beach…

I foresee swimming, snorkeling, and fishing…yeah!!!

Yesterday, we sat on a large rock in the garden… and gazed to our heart’s content…

Pretty luxurious, I must say…

The garden is ‘mature’, and ‘Japanese’…with a slope on the east side…

There are large sakura trees, plum trees, maple, pines…

At the lows, there is ginger, bamboo, iris… and lots more…

Three seasoned stone lanterns and rain-scrapped bamboo fences further characterize the garden…

To cap it, there is a raised plot for vegetable planting…

I see fresh cucumbers… bitter gourd… salads…

Oh yes, we are going to indulge ourselves with some ‘space’ pretty soon…
