Packing up today

I tried to take a photo to show the back of the house where we’re staying at the moment. Just out of sight on the left of the photo is the entry door to the main house which has a high peaked roof like the ones you can see. There are four of these 'pavilions', each one placed a bit further back on the block than the previous, The first pavilion is very close to the water. The peaked roof on the left is a double garage. The next peaked section is our unit with the entry door visible to the right of the garage and the final peaked roof section is another garage and workshop. There is a large paved area which contains a caravan, a pop-up caravan (which isn’t theirs) and two boats so it is a big block. Today is our last day so we’ll be packing up soon. We will stay tonight as the owners aren’t expected home till late evening.

That is a large house and property. I hope you and Vince enjoyed yourselves there.

It's been fun but it will be quite nice to get home again. We like dogs but find them smelly. Maybe if we were here longer we'd be asked to bath them. As it is, they're a bit on the nose now.

@JudyEv We always had dogs and cats when I was a kid. Mom always bathed the inside dogs once a week. Dad didn't like it when they got too whiff in the house, either.

@DaddyEvil we've been in houses where the doggy smell would just about knock you over. People must get used to it as they don't seem to notice.

This dwelling is interesting, I haven't seen one like it before. It must be a really big house.

It's only two bedrooms - the main one and the one in our unit. But the sheds/garages are big.

This is a very large house. I hope you enjoyed, but I am sure that you are happy to go back home now. Three dogs around all the time would be a big too much for me.

@JudyEv That is the problem with dogs, they get smelly after a few days.

@LadyDuck And we're not used to a dog smell so we really noticed it.

The dogs weren't much trouble but after a week they were starting to get a bit smelly. We weren't given any instructions about washing them. If we do it again for longer, we'd wash them sometime during our stay.

I used to ask guests if they got the smell of our dogs while they got in and the answer was always a no which was such a relief I have heard about people in the house getting used to the smell and it is only when someone visited they got it.

@JudyEv We always brushed our dogs every day and bathed them once every fortnight

I've walked into houses and nearly been knocked over by the doggy smell. I'm sure the owners get used to the smell. These dogs were getting whiffy by the time we left. If we do it again for longer, we'd wash them after about a week. I discussed it with the owner.

The three peaks in the picture look like three separate houses.

That's quite a house. I'll bet you can't wait to sleep in your own bed again!

The bed there was really soft but we slept really well. However, your own bed is always good.

Wow that looks nice, I like that tree, too. What is the red driving surface? Pavement?

@FayeHazel Most are grey-coloured surfaces but you can get red.

I'm glad you and Vince enjoy house sitting. Do you get paid for it or do you do it just for friends?

We just do it for the fun really but there does seem to be a need for sitters. We don't charge.

That's a big area! And it all looks very neat and well-kept.

It is neat and tidy. It's about 20 years old so there are dozens of pots, mostly of succulents and cacti. It's all easy-care really.
