Romantic Wood Burning Pastimes

I know it may seem like I “doth protest too much”, but I really DON’T spend all my time at the window ………
Twitching Curtains 1……. but since Santa very kindly left us a pair of one eye binoculars for Christmas, it would only look rude not to avail myself of them at …… erm …… every possible interesting opportunity.
Twitching net curtains 3So yesterday I spent a very interesting five minutes or so watching a gentleman across the river undertaking a very manly pursuit, to wit, sawing logs, chopping logs would have been more romantic, but there again, we live in a modern age with modern tools which make such tasks easier.
The gentleman then stored his logs under an upturned canoe…….
……. how utterly romantic is that?  I think he may live in the marina as I am sure I have also seen him collecting said logs to, I presume, burn on a stove on his barge, it all paints such an idyllic picture, in some ways I almost wish we had an open fire at The Towers   ………. But as I said at the beginning, I don’t stand twitching at the nets at the window all day long.

You are not being a nosy neighbour, you are just admiring the great views from Riverside Towers.

If you didn't look out of your window, you wouldn't see such interesting things and receiving binoculars is really saying you need to keep a lookout!

Oh if that is what you see in the winter just think of what you might see in the summer! JantheFan x
