Wonderful. From your balcony. When we were in Paris some years ago, we stayed at a small hotel just off the Champs du Mars. Wherever we went, we were in sight of the Eiffel Tower for the first bit of the way. One of the kids got sick after a few days, and the family was staying in rooms with her. I dodged out to run down to the Rue Cler for lunch crepes, and crossed Mars hurriedly as I went. I merely glanced up at the Eiffel Tower. In less than a week, it had ceased to be a wonder to me, and had become simply home landscape.

I found that interesting.

Your landscape includes whales.

I think staying awake to the wonders in your back yard - very important. If we cease to see, we cease also to be grateful, I think. Wonder is something to cultivate and keep alive like a small flame in the hand.

Thank you for showing us this.

Hello, I came over from Ravelry. Your blog is lovely. You have nice view from your window. Here in Wisconsin, USA. It is cold and miserable. Thinking about your view is very nice.

Hi K,
You are so right...the locals who live on the beach in the Wild Coast town where we holiday, say that mostly they don't even go down to the beach anymore.... sad...maybe they should live in Joburg for a week and then re-appreciate the beauty they have on their doorstep...

But I could not skip over this post without stopping to say: What a beautiful view! You must feel so blessed!
