Let the Rain Fall Down

It's dark and stormy outside and opposed to wishing the weather away, I am wishing for a grander location to enjoy such a downpour. This seaside house in Scotland looks like the perfect place to watch an onslaught of wind and rain.

I can imagine watching the waves crash furiously upon the beach from this window seat, a spot that seems made for daydreaming.


The rest of the Blackett House and Estate doesn't look too shabby either...








Also, while I wouldn't actually want to make use of the dogs for hunting, I am thrilled to see that the house comes equipped with Hunt Kennels-- you know of my love for dogs.

Gorgeous countryside. I've always wanted to go to Scotland. The living is easy there I'm sure!

I wish it were even the slightest bit yucky here right now. It has been in the high 70's for days - blech. Bring on the rainy weather!

You have made me long for a window seat with a view of the rain and storm clouds. In my mind, I'm already there curled up under a big throw, with a good book in hand! :)

Oh yes please! Let's all go on vaycay there: rugged hikes across the moors, gardening in that lovely kitchen garden, cups of tea by a roaring fire. Wonderful!

This is killing me, I hope you realize. Just killing me.

It is pouring here today also...I don't mind the rain but it makes it really, really hard to get up and go to work...I would much rather be laying in that window sill curled with my cats and a book and some tea...sigh...

Love these romantic photos of a Scottish house by the sea! Makes Laguna seem downright mundane. Just love this post!
