The Shepherd's Hut- external walls peeling paint, just one room, an outhouse and a garden of chooks -really just a timber shed with a balcony perhaps not for everyone but we fell in love with it. Could be a writer's retreat, a romantic getaway, solitude with comfort! Eclectically decorated - red poppies and crisp white lace linen with grandpa chairs strewn with handiworked cushions, comfy timber chairs on the deck and a rocky stream moving at a meandering pace just beyond the decking. Somewhere to ramble. No TV, internet, no one able to reply to my travelsim messages but a large library of books so... glass of wine (NZ Sav Blanc) in hand and a Janet Frame book of short stories, gourmet chicken and tarragon sausages sizzling on the BBQ. A hot bath late at night on the verandah (yes, an open air bath is in the OPEN) the surroundings so silent, stars bright.. Relaxed. I am content.
