If I reached out my right hand I
would touch a house to the side here which I thought was
wonderfully positioned with this view, it's own little inlet
from the sea and a road up to it, so no carrying everything up
several flights of stairs to get it into the house.
Note the pipe snaking up the hill
to the top left. Rock and permafrost mean that all utilities are
above ground, though rather than being carried by over-head
lines, they often meander across the ground or part-way up rock
faces. It makes for much cleaner and clearer views.
