I am easily manipulated by television...

Also, everybody watch Derek on Netflix. Every episode made me laugh and cry.

Forget Me Not

I love finding silly old things I've written...

Note: Ruby and Charles are ghosts. 

"Adriana lived with Ruby and Charles. When she would take hot baths with candles they usually minded their own business, but sometimes Ruby would feel lonely and join her."

Also, look how cute David and Tippy are.

Cannon Beach, OR

My friend Jendar came to town so we went to the coast! I loved the misty ride there, so many pine trees and vampires. 
Fog and ghosts. 
Beach paddle ball
The rocks!
Running into the freezing water. 
Clam chowder. 
Fish & chips. 
The beach in Seaside, Oregon. Seaside is great because there's a place in town to play bumper cars and have strange old men bump you so hard you double spin.

Day Trip to Comillas

On the way to Santillana del Mar we stopped in Comillas, a seaside village known for El Capricho, a house designed by Gaudi. Comillas was easy to fall in love with, like most places I visit...it seems. Maybe it was the castle that overlooked the city? Was it the graveyard with the ocean view? It was probably because of the empty town square with the two little boys playing futbol, but it could have been the palace reminscient of the one in The Others. (The Others was filmed in the area!) I love Cantabria, so many good sleepy towns and so much green!

The best roast chicken and patatas fritas is here at Mombasa, a Jumanji themed restaraunt. 
This town has some good angel statues, my Granny would love it here.
The boys playing football. 


The graveyard with the best view!
 
Off-season. 
I love neo-gothic.

Medieval witch village, I love you!


Santillana del Mar is a beautiful medieval village surrounded by farmland near Santander. We went there the day before we moved to Portland on a typical rainy day.  If I lived in Santillana del Mar during the eighth century I would have been a witch. There were little bruja (witch) figurines all over the village and herbs and plants hanging everywhere along with so much stone. 

We sipped on the famous Cider (sidra) here, it tasted very fermenty and not very sweet, but it made for a nice woozy walk.
Suitcase on the back of the car. 
I love these witchy plant globes.  I saw them everywhere. 
I turned into a Granny and took a bunch of flower pictures. 
Heart head.
A peacock!
A an ice cream cone museum. A barquillero is basically a waffle cone.  
I love this entryway.
Pile of sticks for a magic spell!
This man just makes little bowls and brujas all day long. 
                               
Oh hey!
Man gardening. 
The End.
