I am not just a grasshopper playing in the glorious sun. I am also an industrious ant preparing for winter.
This is 100 Euro of oak fireplace wood. It should last us through the winter along with what other wood we have scavenged from the beaches and construction sites. (There is 500 kg. in 3 rows.)
Our open fireplace is our main source of heat in the evenings, November through March. During the day we have strategically placed electric heaters. Our house is plumbed for radiators but we have not invested in a boiler. We would rather travel in the winter.
To fill out the post here is a photo of an unusually broad sail boat that anchored off our beach for a few minutes in August.
