Quite a change from my old place in Bermondsey, just off the Old Kent Road, this is the view I now have to put up with!

Cheers folks! We never would have believed that scruffy old industrial buildings in London could do us so proud out in the sticks! Our whole area is to be razed and re-developed, a huge shame, but we decided to go before the Compulsory Purchase Orders start arriving.

Mike, I did not know that you had moved to the coast, whereabouts? Coast is good!

Great stuff Marcus. Nothing like a bit of wildlife in the garden. Having said that, I saw more foxes in Central London than I have here. We don't seem to have any foxes here.
Glad you're enjoying your new life.
You need to get a couple of dogs now. The lord of the manor always has a few dogs following him around. It's a country thing.
Three Deerhounds should do it.

Cheers! All is great, but we have to make this old farm pay. A dog seems quite likely, once the Alpacas arrive and settle i the Spring

Nice one Mike, I'm sure you will love being by the coast. It's something I always had a vague dream of, but never for a moment thought that I would be able to actually do it!

A visit to nearby Sandbanks is an eye-opener! Perhaps that's where Mike really is!

Seen a couple of Alpacas last year in South America. A couple of hundred thousands that is. Everyone seems to have them. In fields, gardens, yards and even wandering in and out of houses. Although they have a penchant for spitting, I managed to avoid being hit, although one stood on my foot.
I've seen them in fields in Scotland from time to time. For a while I thought they were Llamas until someone explained to the idiot city boy they were Alpacas.
You learn something new everyday, so they say.

I lived in Uruguay for 5 years as a boy. Knew about Llamas, saw them, got spat on by one, but only heard of Alapcas a few years ago! They are much more friendly and spit much less than Llamas. Might be going to a big local Alpaca farm this weekend to find out more. Meanwhile the most regular pair of Mallards is getting used to me and waddle up to see if I have any food for them, very endearing!
