Hi my friends! Thought I'd share a
few pictures of us taken this past weekend. We had girls day out and had our own little Christmas in our favorite weekend getaway.
Was it cold? Heck yeah it was cold! And windy. But it was a pretty sunny day and as you can see we came dressed for the weather. We had a nice blanket to sit on and another to cover us. That came in handy when we rode the trolley car.
Only had one little mishap while we were unwrapping our gifts. One of our empty gift bags escaped, thanks to the wind, and before we could capture it into the mote it went! We were sitting on the grass by the Castile De San Marcos.
Other than that we had a wonderful day of fun in the sun. Walking down the old cobbled streets and shopping at our favorite shops.
We noticed a few business's had either closed or changed hands. A sign of the times, I'm afraid. And one small shop in particular surprised us, the Old World Bakery. I hope it's not permanent. They offered home made breads, cookies, and these great little meat filled pastries. I think they also offered soups.
Before we knew it our day was coming to an end. We finished it off with a seafood dinner and then headed home. My daughter's home is only an hour or so away. From there I have another two hour drive. Sometimes I can do it in an hour and a half, depending on the traffic.
I hated saying goodbye but we're getting together again on Wednesday night for our "holiday dinner". You must be thinking this is weird but this year we all have our own plans for how we're spending Christmas.
Thanksgiving is the holiday we all gather under one roof.
