Hello dear Friends!
Ok, looks like this week is going to be back to 'normal' in general. I even hosted our last Wednesday of the month Rosary prayer, last week, while I was still getting my house together.
I'm finally free so I can post some photos of our trip around the coastal region, called "The Route of the Spondylus" in Ecuador which we went with my dear Bil, Alejandro's brother, the owner of the rose farm and his wife Juanita... they are very dear to us, to be fair, all my Bils and Sils are dear to us both!
We people of the Andean-Highlands love the beach because is far away and lots of hours drive, that's why when we go, we stay for at least a week if not longer, like we did. When my girls were small, we stayed a month!
I will explain a little after some pictures...lots of them, lol!
"¡I WILL ALSO BE HAVING A GIVEAWAY I BROUGHT FOR YOU FROM MY TRIP!"
Please check out the announcement as soon as I find a hostess who would like to do me the favor!
|Fishermen boats. The Seafood is amazing in Ecuador, and we have the best shrimp ever, exported to Europe and the US.|
|The Salinas Yatch Club is near the private boats and it's a wonderful club with great food!|
|Me, arriving at one of the most beautiful hotels we were at, on our way. |
We slept in one and the following day we drove to another beach resort area and were sleeping in another beautiful hotel and different each one... it was great!
|My 'conch ceviche' and plantain chips to go along.|
|In the back a shrimp ceviche and up front, a seafood rice with fish.|
|Plantain chips to accompany, along with a pretty and fresh salad.|
|Another lovely hotel.|
|We were going to the beach which was right outside a beautiful walk and it also had a pier or dock direct to the sea.|
|Here we are late in the afternoon taking a walk by the dock.|
|Juan, Juanita and us.|
|This place we stayed at was adorable! Lots of bungalows with two rooms, TV and a small porch inside and outside...we loved it!|
|Walking distance directly to the beach. We would go for walks at the beach and to swim in the morning because of the light sun rays at that hour.|
|Another shrimp yummy dish.|
|A light sea-bass dish.|
|Me with my dear In law's|
|Alejandro and Juan, his older brother; but they both have an eldest bro too.|
|We visited a young artist couple that live by a beach area, all year round, very secluded as artists tend to like! They have a fabulous modern home!|
|Here I am with my young friend. They used to live in the Andean city of Cuenca, where we live and we know their parents.|
|We spent the last three days before driving back home at my Bil's and his wife's high rise apartment at the resort of Salinas, which is simply gorgeous!|
|A view from the window.|
|My Sil's beautiful shell collection and some with interesting shapes.|
|Our breakfast table at my sister in law's Juanita's dining table, as we stayed the last three days of our trip at their high rise apartment at the beach resort.|
The pretty tablecloth is hand made of 'Straw-shawl.'
|I love beach sunsets!|
Sorry I had so many pics and you are so kind to come by and visit me, as you know you always make my day!
Thank you to the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
