Wednesday 11th May 2016...house sit begins!!!

So after weeks of planning and being in touch with Sue, the owner of the house, I finally arrived this morning....it is Simon's Town shown on the map below!!







I met my two buddies for the next two weeks..... Bella a 9 year old very lovely Jack Russell!
and there is Storm a 9 month old rescue Alaskan Malamute who is indeed going to be a lot of fun and a lot of work but she is gorgeous and very bonded to me already...


Out of privacy concerns not going to show many shots of the home but it is on a mountainside and with great views of the ocean from the front deck and only a few blocks from town!!


Sue explain the workings of the house and the dog's routines and then she was off to the airport and I took the girls for a walk!!!
It is going to be lovely here for two weeks..to have some company...cook some meals and I intended to relax lots before I start the next installment on my journey!!!
I took the afternoon to unpack and get everything sorted and then spent some time on the deck with my book...I have looked around the area and there are a lot of lovely walks ....Bella can only do a short morning and evening walk but Storm I know will out walk me!!!
Had a lovely meal and yes a bath!!!
Now we need to get something straight here.....in the photo of the living room you will notice quite a large TV and it does have Cable TV which means I get all the sports stations...I warn you now I intend to watch a lot of tennis and soccer, pity I cannot get the hockey play offs, so   you have to get used to reading "tonight I studied the USConstitution" which really means I watched TV!!!  OK???
OK now I am going to .......
Yashi Kochi!!!!

Have fun with your new furry friends!

Cheers, Peter and Shelagh.
