Refuge.



When it becomes oppressively hot and humid (anywhere over 35 C, like yesterday), this is to where we retreat.

It's the single room of our so-called 'tower', that Lady Magnon and I built a few years back.

It is cooling; usually with a light breeze. It is reasonably uncluttered (for us). And the bed is big enough for the three of us to take our afternoon siesta very comfortably (the third member being Bok). At nights only Freddie is allowed access; unless there are storms. 

The room has a Franco/Moroccan feel about it, and is very relaxing. There is no water or electricity, so no disturbance. The room is also away from the house. 

Methinks it's time to move in before our real summer begins (which we did last night)!

  1. The room has a cool appearance and yes, the bed cover has a Moroccan appearance. Do you use the mosquito net? I've only used one once and somehow it got mixed up with my bedding after I had been tossing and turning.

    1. No Mozzies so far this year. They aren't always easy to use; ours is quite large, so better than some.

  2. It looks like a wonderful, cool refuge in the summer. The summer heat is already oppressive here and it's making me feel lazy and unmotivated.

  3. What a wonderful retreat! Cool and uncluttered sounds perfect for this extreme summer weather.

    1. Not as cool as we'd like, but better than in the house.

    1. It's the (almost) perfect spot to spend hot nights; but I do miss my radio and LBC.

  5. I think the lack of a WC would top the O/N list!

    1. It's not too far away. For men it's much closer!

    2. Potty could perhaps have a potty.

  6. That room is very similar to one in Crete we stayed in. We had flown over night, travelled over the mountains in the searing heat, then lay on the bed looking at the beams on the ceiling as the breeze wafted the curtains at the window. The best nap I have ever had.

  8. Just looking at that room has a cooling effect! Last night here was very hot and still. Finally cooled off this morning so at the moment pleasant in the shade...

    1. I like the sound of that; a holiday at home.

  10. WOW ! What a lovely cool place to escape to Cro. It is very hot in sunny Sussex today so I must go and dangle my feet in our fish pond. Marion x

  12. It certainly has a very inviting look to it.

    1. Great for a power-nap siesta too.

  13. Sorry. No water = no loo = no me. If I lived in those temperatures as I did occasionally in NZ, then air-conditioning would be the order of the day (as is the norm in NZ).

    1. I don't really notice the lack of facilities, other than for my internet radio; but the WiFi doesn't reach there anyway.

  14. I loved it when you said 'this is to where we retreat'

    Most people would have said 'This is where we retreat to'

    Never end a sentence with a preposition!
