We were up at 5am, and on the road by 5.45.
We arrived at our destination just after 10, so as we weren’t due to meet the Estate Agent until noon, we had a look around the town.
We found they are as dog friendly there as they are here, and discovered a lovely little cafe where we could take Maggie inside.
We had one of their ‘small’ breakfasts, and it was heavenly. We also sampled their fresh homemade cakes which were equally divine and very reasonably priced.
The beach is literally up the road, and dogs are allowed on part of it all year.
Maggie discovered one of the three pet shops, dragging me inside as she sniffed the shelves, finally finding the ‘sausage’ box, and helping herself to 20p worth. Naturally we paid up for her pilfering, much to the amusement of the lad behind the counter as he rung up a box of her favourite biscuits too.
The people are friendly, many saying hello as we walked down the road, and we got a lot of smiles from those driving by the property as we waited for our appointment.
One lady stopped on her mobility scooter and welcomed us to the neighbourhood.
I can’t put pictures out until it’s officially ours, but I am pleased.
The basic design is similar to our property in Poole, though it is slightly smaller.
It has two bedrooms, bathroom, lounge, and a fitted kitchen with cooker, hob and extractor fan, with an integral fridge/freezer behind the door. I have asked about the washing machine, so you never know, they might be leaving that.
It’s perfect for us, and being a blank canvas, we can move in and put our mark on it at our leisure. I think we are going to be just fine.
The garden is plenty large enough for our veg patch, and a WASHING LINE!
Maggie gave it the pee seal of approval, so she has left her scent in the grass ready for when we move in.
Now we just have to wait.
