If I Had A Bakery By The Sea

I would be enchanted by

what I could find
just right outside my door

Like the perfect spot in my tiny village, where I took these photos yesterday,

that is for sale and has this view

It is the place known to locals as The Captain's House.

And if I lived there, I would have a bakery in the downstairs part

and in the autumn, I would make spice cakes in little ramekins,

just like I did yesterday in my kitchen where I live now.

And I would be sure to invite you in for coffee, and clever tea cakes in delicate and delightful shapes, as we laughed away our silly problems, and contentedly, looked out, to the sea.

I would drive all the way down east to come to your bakery. I really would. Ayuh.

Gorgeous photos and I love the name of the house. Cute idea with the barnacles.

How did you make the barnacled frosting? it looks very refreshing
