Things Are Coming Together

27 05 2010

Well we are one step closer to making the move official.  Joe was given a contract today.  We are reading through it and making sure all bases are covered before signing but so far, things are looking good!  Everything should be finalized by June 2.

Joe has been on the house hunt.  The market isn’t huge so he has only been able to look at 3 houses.  We are leaning towards the first one.  It is being built right now and almost done.  It has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  It is located a ways from the centre of town and there is only 1 other house on the road.  There’s a picture below but keep in mind, it isn’t done or landscaped yet.

We haven’t agreed to take it yet as we were hoping to find a place with a bit better location.  They think once school ends more houses may come up.  We either hold off and hope something better comes up or risk losing this one.

Joe keeps teasing me with photos of beaches.  Today he had lunch on the beach and says he can see me spending a lot of time there.  There is an expat neighbourhood right there as well so he was hoping we could get a house there.  Keep your fingers crossed for us!





A Beach in Gabon

24 05 2010

Joe found some time to visit a beach the other night.  This one is about a 5 minute drive from one of our potential homes.  It is pretty secluded, nice and clean.  I can see myself spending a bit of time there!

Aside from spending time checking out beaches, Joe has been fairly busy at work.  He has been putting in some long days interviewing people, working on things for the new shop, and trying to figure out things for our life over there.  We are still trying to decide on a house and whether to ship or store our things.

He will probably spend another 2 weeks in Gabon before returning home and then we’ll start to wrap things up here!
