~Island*

...Isn't this an incredible House?
Perched on a teeny-tiny island in San Sebastian!
My good pal, Pet and his two boys went swimming nearby & captured this photo recently.
I always crave for moments like this...travelling, discovering something 
so surreal & sharing it with others ~Thanks Pet!

~XOXO*

I'd love to live there, Lenore Nevermore, as long as I didn't have to share the island with King Kong! (LOL)

I would LOVE to live on my own little island! No loud cars with their bass bumped up to ear-splitting levels... no door to door salesmen, no worries about walking around naked! Ha ha! I'd love that!!

Thanks for sharing another lovely tidbit!

Seeing that house brings up so many questions and piques my curiosity! You're so right about traveling and the thrill of discovery, it's one of the true joys in life. XO

It does not look real! Have always dreamed of having my own private island :)

Jo said...

I love it! I'd say, "If you love me, swim to me!" Of course I'd be waiting with a long flowing scarf and a bottle of champagne. Wow, I got off course there!
This photo just made my imagination run a little wild. All that is to say, I love it!!

Pet said...

Lenore, thank you for the post. I've had a substantial increase in the number of visitors of my blog thanks to you. I am really grateful. The island just happens to be in front of my house :-)
In summer time there is a boat that goes there. It is a nice place for a picnic. You can also swim. It is not that far from the beach really.
Nobody lives in the island currently. The building in the picture is an old lighthouse.

McVal said...

That is beautiful! Darn it. Nothing that gorgeous around here...

This is a stunning picture! I can't ever imagine living in a house like that

Down and Out Chic said...

oh my goodness, what a house! i wonder how the people who live in it get around from day to day. or maybe they don't. maybe they stay in their little house looking at the water all day long. i know i could.

Nick said...

If I lived in that house on the island I would each night to Eros, the god of beach erosion

Alena said...

Oh my. Oh my. What an incredible home.
