Anyway, the Harbour Mews block is almost immediately on the right after the Axe Bridge ...
Then there is the attic, a proper room with a proper staircase where our grandchildren can occupy two single beds ...
Five minutes from our front door we have Tesco ...
This next picture is a composite of the view westwards on a bright sunny morning. You can enlarge the shot by clicking on the picture itself.
We have visited two churches (so far). Seaton Baptist meets in the Junior School.
We have already had visitors.
Alan, an old school friend of Peter's from Northampton popped in for a cup if tea. He was on a rail excursion to the Tramway ...
Joan Anderson, friend of Sheila's from the Island, has stayed a couple of nights. Peter and Christine Shelley (Peter, a former colleague from Southern Vectis days) have called in. It is the Shelley flat in Sidmouth where Peter and Sheila have had holidays in the past. Kath (long time friend of Sheila) and hubby Bob called in for a visit as they were on holiday nearby.
David, Carrie and the grandchildren came and worked really hard helping us with practical things on our second weekend and youngest son Robert has been twice. They have all been such a help! And it confirmed that the house can accommodate 7 in reasonable comfort, although Rob was "camping" on th living room floor.
Two questions we are often asked. "Are you all unpacked?" Answer, NO!
We have no doubt that God has opened the way miraculously to our new house and this town. We have not yet discovered what he wants us to do, specifically, in His service, but we are sure there will be a role for us, somewhere and somehow. Retirement is not an option in The Christian Life!
Until we are "called", we are enjoying the break from Church duties, enjoying the seaside and slowly sorting things out.
Whilst we have view north eastwards of a large warehouse out of the back bedroom window ...
And there are many, many beautiful coastal haunts a short drive away. This is Seaton Hole with cafe tables just visible bottom right, a regular haunt!
We continue to praise God for his gracious goodness to us over the last three months. We look forward to greeting many more "passing" visitors and there are plenty of good quality B&Bs in Seaton for those who fancy a short holiday!
In case we have forgotten to tell you,
1 Harbour Mews
(and yes, the number does only have five digits!)
Love to hear from you!
Peter and Sheila
