Deb and I moved from our house in Porthleven in 1989, and left Cornwall to follow my job around the country. We lived in Oxfordshire for a short time before moving to Staffordshire. Here the family grew up and eventually the children left home.
Our love of cruising continued and enabled us to see so many wonderful places in Europe which I thought I would never see with my fear of flying. When the chance came in 2012 for us both to retire we left our jobs and had the ultimate adventure with a cruise around the world for three months.
Our regular itch to move homes took us away from the Midlands in 2013, to a house in the countryside of Herefordshire. This was planned as our long term retirement home, but my body began to let me down through arthritis, and we had to consider the future again.
For several years we had toyed with the idea of a retirement village, but this was just looking at pictures, and reading reports. But then on a whim as we returned to Herefordshire from a visit to see my brothers in 2018, we visited a retirement complex just outside of Truro.
Less than a year later we moved in to a wonderful apartment at this retirement complex called Roseland Parc in the village of Tregony. A new chapter of our lives was about to begin.
So sit back and follow our continued adventures, as we began retirement back in Cornwall.
