I needed to share some good news with all of you – my extended family and friends who read our blog. We have been looking for our own little “Beach Hut” for some time now and we finally found it. On our last trip up the coast we were also house hunting along with enjoying a much-needed vacation from our permanent vacation. ja ja
We found a small home that is on the same block as the beach in San Clemente out by the bluff. It needs some TLC but we feel that we are up to the challenge and have already lined up someone to help us with the heavy work. We are scheduled for a closing on Friday and moving on Saturday. This will mean that I will not be posting often until I get everything set. We need to cancel things here in Playas and then set up internet, electric, water – well you know I will be running around like a mad women for many days…but I promise that I will keep track and give you the blow-by-blow information on what the closing process was like and what it takes to get this house set up.
Please keep your fingers crossed, get out the Rosary if you are so inclined or say a small prayer that all goes well and we get our little home.
This photo was taken standing on the porch looking out on our little yard. It has six or seven different varieties of fruit trees including limon (lime), cherry (cereza) and even a pomegranate (granada). I have a lot of trimming to do as these trees have been ignored for a very long time. We will need to do a lot of work on the house as well but its all part of the package – we wanted a small place and we have a small budget.This is how we make it work.
We like the big porch, with a nice yard overlooking the fruit trees and just a few steps to the beach. We are so blessed!
