Autumn’s End at the Beach House Kitchen

A very belated Happy Samhain/ Halloween to you all!  We spent it packing up the house, soup bubbling and preparing the garden for winter.  Here are a few images of the last days of Autumn, a week ago, in the Beach House Garden.

We have flown the nest again like migrating birds.  We’re in Turkey, up to our necks in ancient ruins and scrumptious kebabs and salads.  Looking at these pictures makes us feel privileged to live in such a special little corner of the world.  More news from Turkey, Spain and India soon…..goodbye Beach House until AprilXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

  1. Good luck on your new home & looking forward for more interesting blog post from your new location! Be well, Y

    • Thanks Yolanda, we will do our best to post when on the road. It can be hard at times with so much going on! Not to mention irregular internet connection. Always lovely to have you around the BHK. Happy days, lee and jane

  2. And again I know, without a doubt, why I follow this blog avidly :). We all feel like teddies being packed into your suitcase and taken on a most wondrous journey whenever we drop by. I love your jetsetting life, hopping from country to country and living your lives to the fullest and cram packing those little empty corners with experiences and love. LOVE your photos, those beach rocks (who doesn’t love a heart shaped rock?) and all of the amazing food and adventure possibilities that you two are jumping into. Have the best “winter” and 30C for a winters day? You beat us…we are in the last month of spring and just hit 25C. I am quite happy to stay there actually and you can have any higher temperatures with great pleasure if you choose to adopt them ;). Love the look of those cookies guys and can’t wait to read your next whirlwind blog post and take that journey in images along with you from the comfort of my early morning computer throne ;). Have a ball 🙂

    • Teddies in our backpacks! How cool!!!!! Its wonderful to have you along for the ride. I’ve just popped the cookies onto the BHK after stormy night sheltered in our hotel room. Turkey is cool and so is Taz! Nice to hear that things are hotting up for you guys, Im sure the garden is starting to bloom….. Peace and Love, lee and jane

      • Hope you guys are having a most seriously excellent time in Turkey and that cold old Britain is a far off thought. Everything is going mental in the garden and we are flat out trying to keep up with it 🙂
