    From the Garden Room sofa watching Saturday Kitchen.

    Would be lovely to get the Clementi fired up outside in the sun.

    Looking for city views?

    Here was the view for the past 7 years, but escaped a month or so back...

    A bit noisy what with BLM and Extinction Rebellion marches, weekend rallies inc. ponies and Harley's, and pretty constant sirens and helicopters. Somewhere I hav a picture of c10 riot vans outside the living room window, while trying to do my usual day of Zoom calls. Quite distracting when early lockdown led to a very peaceful city.

    Although we did get some nice sunsets out of the back.

    From the bed. Noisy offspring not pictured.

    Stephenson's Rocket used to run past here up to Tindale.
    The first train in the world, past my house!

    Usually visible from this window: Swaledale sheep (lots and lots), pheasants, hares, curlews, lapwings, (RSPB Geltsdale) barn owl, the odd sparrow hawk and Ayreshires.

    Same view near enough from the other 3 sides.

    I'm taking the scenic route for my Sunday lunchtime sup tomorrow, so along the way my views will be . . .


    Down the bank and through the arch at Kepier Hospital







    Along by the Wear until I get here





    Over Prebend's Bridge





    Nip through Palace Green





    Arriving at this view, from whence my view will become increasingly blurred ;-)

    Fortunate to have a decent sized garden in south east London which is backed onto by bungalows so no over looking neighboursÖ
    Plenty of greenery, two lakes and a park within 30 second walkÖ
    Best of both worlds!

    The grass is new or you have a super-duper reel mower (combined with skills to make straight lines!)

    I sailed out of Ardrossan a few years ago when the marina was still pretty new. It has certainly changed for the better as there was no housing then, just semi-derelict industrial units and a rail siding.

    Itís an old pic from Feb but this pic doesnít capture it but I live in North London on green belt land - my gardens backs on to fields. Lovely part of UK for me. Come out and go right and Iím in London as you know it and 45 minutes into central London on the tube or I go left and itís farm land , and golf courses and fields that makes you feel youíre a million miles from London.

    Eaux-Vives with Mont Blanc behind in the photo. Our place was in Le Bouchet, it was a lovely walk down the hill into the city and ten minutes stroll from work. I could even walk to the airport if I was lightly loaded. Love Geneva, it has a bit of everything.

    The weather conditions made the outlook from the balcony always interesting and often stunning. We would sometimes make an impromptu visit to Chamonix after looking across the city first thing.

    As another city dweller there is not much to look at outside my front room window, (we all know what a Costa Coffee and tube station looks like) and the garden doesn’t exactly have great views either
    I am fortunate to have some great views at other homes though.

    Looking out out of the back of the house, winter and summer. Walking the dogs in the fields opposite the house and heading off to work last time we had snow.

    Ah!! I was the wrong side of the lake!

    What a great picture!

    I know Servette quite wellÖ. One cousin lived on Rue du Jura and the other on the street next to the Placette store (now Manor)

    YeahÖ. Itís a great townÖ. Spent many weeks there as a young man as everyone I knew lived in posh student squats and had illegal (but nobody cared) bars attached to themÖ. Some big parties!

    Loved mooching round the big puces too! There was a really nice watch watch standÖ

    I still go back often and always enjoy itÖ. Last time was just before lock downÖ

    Being glass is half full, yes the living space is small but this is the Google Maps 'view' and in terms of having recreational and shopping facilities, access to stunning river walks and 2 of the best parks in the UK things aren't too shabby.
