Thank you for sharing! I loved seeing the pics from your trip. So glad you had a lovely break! It looks beautiful!


Just recently stumbled upon your blog. I'm also a crochet fan ever since my beloved grandmother taught me as a child of 8yrs! Love your photos of your break away.. especially the market..I love markets. Inspiring.

Dear Lucy the photo of the peppers!!! Such a variety. Glad you had such a wonderful time. x


Dear Lucy,

I am a new reader, courtesy of Janelle Wind, and I write to you from one of the smallest states in the U.S. - Connecticut or New England as we like to refer to it. I want to tell you how much I enjoy your blog entries, especially these last two. You make me feel like I was having a little vacation right along with you. I can't wait to begin your crochet bag pattern, except I will using Tahki cotton classic as I have quite a bit left over from another project. I hope you are still planning to do a post regarding the diagrams for the Japanese crochet patterns.

Can't wait to read more.

Oh I just knew you would go to the market on Sunday! It is one of my favourite places in the whole world! It's also a brilliant place to take your little people if you ever get the opportunity - my three love it so much. Glad you had a lovely break


Oh Lucy you really do deserve it! What a fab treat. I did something similar when little A was about 1ish. Woody looked after both our boys while I skipped off to deepest Monmouthshire with my lovely sister for a weekend of pootling down the Wye looking at castles. It was very blissful and I know just how giddy you must feel having a little escape.

I bet everyone was so thrilled to have you home too. Happy memories. Good for you.


I do very much enjoy your travel posts! I'm glad you had a great time, it's so needed to recharge and be a good mommy and wife.

What a wonderful weekend!!! And yes, you really deserved that :)

Love the shot of the street, makes you wonder what might be happening just around the corner.


hi Lucy ,
wooow you seems to have lot good time , i am glad for you .
your picturous marration has transmitted me to the places you visited , as i was going thru there by myself , quite refreshing . i look forward to hear and see more of your girlie shopping, as you mentioned markets with bags and belt and those kind of things.


Love the peppers and love farmers markets! Going to the farmers market is one of the very first things I do when moving to a new city. In Baltimore, Maryland ours is held under a highway ramp. Glad you enjoyed your trip so much.


the best the best the best!!! and now home to hookey and natters (or whatever you call it) and the j/lp, and the canal and the abbey, rooftops and english beauty you so lovingly display:) jkj


I don't travel much and have never even been out of the US so your pictures take me to unknown places and with your descriptions I feel as though I'm struggling up those 'mucho' steps with you!

It is indeed, so nice to go traveling but it's oh so nice to come home, recharged and able to see all the familiar things with 'new eyes' and that's what happens when you have a chance to get away. I can remember the feelings you describe well since I raised 5 kids (4 boys, 1 girl) and never had 2 minutes to rub together but it goes so quickly and before you know it, they're all grown up and chomping at the bit to move out on their own to be 'independent'.

Ahh well, my comment is turning into a mini novel, so I will sign off and wish you all the best that life has to offer......I will continue to travel with you via your blog. Incidentally, the flower you mentioned is a Hibiscus and they are indeed one of the most beautiful and colorful of all flowers! :)


Ah Lucy, what photos! And a much needed break from the sound of it too! Im so pleased you had a good time, I adore that little part of the world and isn't everything so much more sumptuous and colorful when you're away? Thanks for sharing, it was a pleasure to read!

Sending love
Julia x x x


So glad you had a wonderful break - in other news I saw this vv rouleaux caravan and thought of you :)



Hola Lucy, the beautiful red flower is a Papo as we called it in my country Panama, also known as Hibiscus flowers. I am very glad you had a chance to enjoy a wonderful holiday and thank you for the pics!


Those cactus in the back with the red fruits are prickly pear. We have taller cacti here in Tucson call saguaro and they only grow here in the Sonora Desert.

That market looks quite exciting. I would love to go to a market like that.

Glad you were able to have a great trip.


Beautiful pictures!


It certainly sounds like you had a lovely break! Oh to be away from Yorkshire cold and damp weather!!!


'muchas gracias' for sharing your weekend away pics, what a fab time, i visited puerto pollensa oh so many years ago, brought back some lovely memories for me as i read your about your delightful 'pick-me-up' weekend


sigh... jealous, yet happy for you to get a much needed break!


Wow, you make me want to get away too! Good to hear you had such a wonderful time with your friend.


What a great getaway you had, Amiga Lucy! You went to a nice place and enjoyed some peaceful time in that countryside rustic style Finca or Villa,with breathtaking views of the blue sea water surrounded by those beautiful mountains.The pace of living is for sure more relaxing, including a nice Siesta in the middle of the day. :o)
By the way, your Spanish Skills are improving very fast.
Hasta pronto,
Gloria xxx


Lovely colors in that market and that view! Whew!!Beautiful.
Hubby gets 4 days so that will get you 2 days more to catch up on another weekend get away.
LOL! I say get to London and you could do some lovely shopping damage there and pics galore.
I am glad you had a great rest.
