Sometimes it is a shy morning, flowing into the day with soft pastel shades. Other times, it is a crescendo of colour. One never knows. The dawn is never the same twice.
The view is essentially why we chose this place to nest. There was no other compelling reason inside. It needed a lot of work. Imagine red and brown walls, missing floor bits, a horrible bathroom and walls where they shouldn't be, like an afterthought.
But, despite all that, there was potential.
And every morning, I am grateful that we saw what it could be. We visited about 10 times before taking it, looking back, looking over, looking around.
Then we looked out. And we couldn't stop looking.
And that was it.
