The West Coast View section of the blog is all about living and working on the South West Wales coast. As our main business is property, a few property-related posts crop up but in the main, it’s where we share the pain and pleasure of the day-to-day reality of running a business in a rural area.
A change of scene. Every now and again we get a chance to go beyond the confines of our home office (or the dining room table in my case) to explore the world of property elsewhere, even if it is only a few miles down the road.
A rather busy day, as the focus turns to work on the latest edition of Your Property Network magazine. I am one of the writing and editing team, working with Anthony (Ant) Lyons (the editor) on getting content written and ready for artwork.
Living where we do on the Welsh coast, we have a rather good view of the sea, and get some rather spectacular sunrises, sunsets and seascapes in general. The trouble is, when you see it every day, and wake up to the view every most mornings, it’s easy to get a bit blasé and take it for granted. This morning, as the car got doused by yet another storm wave crashing over the sea wall as I drove past the seafront, it came to me that it might be sort of interesting (for me anyway, if not for anyone else) to keep a record of what it’s like to live and work in a remote-ish part of the country, about five minutes’ walk down the hill to the sea.
