A very interesting topic, thanks Lynda.

I live in a small community within a not so over populated region of Northern British Columbia Canada....Completely surrounded by beautiful snow capped mountains, which are part of our Coastal Range. This afternoon, they look even more beautiful with the bright sunny weather we are enjoying. Temp at this time +15 & expected higher temp by late afternoon.

I love Cyprus Pat, stayed in Limassol once, all the other times in Ayia Napa which I absolutely love - I know it's got an iffy reputation but I just love the place

!5 minutes Sue? It takes me at least 90 minutes to be in delightful Margaret River, or 10 to the Ferguson Valley (the next Marfaret River) :-P


JustGinnie Report 31 Mar 2013 22:22

I live about a 25mins bus ride from a large midland city, on a very busy main road. No lovely views :-( but I'm near family and friends and I am happy so can't wish for more :-D

I live 2 hours from Sydney in a suburb of a small city. It is on a narrow coastal strip so we have the beauty of the ocean and the mountains. Although we live in a built up area we have the bushland behind our house and within 15 minutes we can be out in the countryside, at the beach or up the mountains.


AnninGlos Report 31 Mar 2013 22:20

In a village but more of a suburb these days, between two small towns. Near the Cotswolds and the Forest Of Dean.


JustJohn Report 31 Mar 2013 22:15

:-D :-D @ Wend

It is in a picturesque village called Perthcelyn :-D


Allan Report 31 Mar 2013 22:10

Also in Oz but West Oz, in a small townsite called Australind. We are 160 kms south of Perth and are within a couple of kilometres of the Indian Ocean coast, which we can see from our house. The following link to the Australind Family History Society site gives a bit of the history and description of the area for those interested

I've often wondered where you live John ;-) :-D

Sharron, that's where my granny used to live :-D


JustJohn Report 31 Mar 2013 21:36

Where Tec lives sounds absolutely stunning. Just the most beautiful part of Britain.

I live 2 hours west of London and it is nearly as beautiful. Lovely river valleys separated by moorland and fabulous mountain roads. With views of Bristol Channel to the south and the start of the Brecon Beacons about 10 miles north :-D

It is in Wales. :-)

I live on Pagham Harbour on the south coast.


Guinevere Report 31 Mar 2013 21:33

Semi rural in Warwickshire. Between a small town and a large city.

I overlook fields and can see horses and stables up the hill across the brook at the bottom of the fields.

Down the lane is the church where I was married, my son was christened and where my parents are buried.

Over the road is the school where my father taught where there are flowering cherry trees. There are also blossom trees in the verge all the way down the lane to the church.
