Overcast day in Pichilemu

Usually all the kiosks are open and there are crowds shopping but not today in the gray and cold. You can just make out the ocean in the background, gray like the sky.
Today was overcast and cold so there were very few people in the park which is about 1 1/2 blocks from the Hotel Bahia. These kiosks are outside the supermercado "El 9". I wanted to show you the bright scarves and next to them a line of hand puppets. I bought a pair of earrings from the puppet stand.This is a map of Pichilemu. I had to take it from the side because of the reflection but if you look at the lower left hand corner, you'll see Playa Hermosa. There is a spit of yellow where our house is one house away from the end of the map which is the city limits.

Thank you for the pictures. The picture of the map I was able to get a better idea of where you live and how big the town is. Connie I'll bet the market is alive with colors when all the venders are there.

It looks a lot like Margaritaville to me!Hey,that's my kinda place though! How cool that you are out on the point. Small wonder the dogs surf there! Keep those pictures comming, G. They lift me up under the grey monochrome sky above me. We had to abandon our short and t-shirts of the last two week this tuesday and trade them for Longies and winter coats again! BooHoo...Robin

Yeah, it gets cold here in the summer too! But, it never snows or goes below about 50, or so it seems.
Margaritaville is an apt comparison, if only you could get a Margarita here. sigh
