Out the Window

Sometimes visitors or tradespeople ask if we get sick of the view, or rather don't take any notice anymore. As we have been here for nine years, you might think it is quite possible that we don't take much notice. The answer to the question is always an emphatic no. Highrise living may not be for everyone, but it suits us very nicely.

  1. The height would freak me out but the view looks pretty amazing even in the photo.

  2. wow - you see Mt Dandenong.
    Spare a thought for New York City highrisers today, and pray we never get a hurricane here.
    I would not tire of the vista, and it would distract me from vacuuming or anything tedious, that's for sure.

  3. You have a great view, and those bottom to [almost] ceiling windows help too!

  4. What a great view! Gazing at that would calm a troubled mind for sure. I like that you've got a little balcony.

  5. AdRad, only freaks me if I stand on the corner of the balcony and look down. Some visitors like to keep the backs of the lounge chairs between them and the outside.

    Indeed Ann, and the Yarra Valley and Albert Park Lake and the Bay. Not the city though. We have actually gotten past being distracted by the view when watching tele.

    Peter, the windows would not do in your country. They would let too much cold in. We don't like curtains, but ideally, they should have curtains to keep the cold and the heat out.

    River,always something to see out there happening. But on the balcony, it is noisy. Ours is a relatively small balcony compared to others in the building, but you can't have everything.

  6. I can't imagine getting tired of such a view. When I used to work in SF in the high rises, all the views were taken by the outer offices of VP's. However, it was nice when they were gone, as they often were, and one could commandeer their office.

  7. Linda, I guess that is par for the course in office buildings. I hope you did not put your feet up on a bosses desk and smoke a cigar.
