day 107 blog 97 heading home

again, little time...packing...check back tomorrow night and i'll fill in the last 3 posts with photos and details...today's highlight included over 4 hours at the ramate ("ramatay"...spanish pronunciation)...a swap meet, flea market of sorts...got lots of stuff including hand knit sweaters from ecuador (with smiling suns, llamas, cacti, etc.) for sea and story...they both had a blast on a pony ride, munching down fresh coconut and lime snow cones, strolling around with poppy...looking at toys, birds, kids, eating more snacks...i also got some used black converse shoes for story, a furry froggy knit hat with matching gloves, a couple richard scarry books for both children, tighty whiteys for story, colorful tights for sea, extra moisturizing conditioner...these are the things that come to mind but it was quite fun, relaxing, productive and surprisingly warm and sunny about 75 degrees with the ventura cool ocean breeze...tomorrow i'm finishing up our handmade xmas cards and letter for the card swap...but for now i'm off to finish packing and head home! hope your holidays were as enjoyable as ours...look forward to catching up in the next few days...


  1. I've been to one flea market in California and it was so cool - your description of some of your sights, sounds and finds makes me wish for a trip to the market in California! :)

    Those sweaters sound like they are adorable! I bet the kids will love them.
