Don't hate me...

... just because I get to spend weekends and holidays here... (meet my father-in-law's beach house in Mirasol)





My brother-in-law (who is an arquitect) designed it.




Did you see that?



Yes, that is the view!




My hubs helped come up with ideas for the gardens...




We hung out at the beach


and went here


and ate this



with this lousy view


It was a tough weekend! But you can feel a little bad for me because on the beach, my hair looks like this:


And though our first day was lovely-sunny, our second day was only lovely-cloudy



I went running on the beach in the drizzle and then had to spend the rest of the morning like this, meditating over coffee...


The kids were clearly unhappy too



So, you see, there are some perks to living in Chile...

Now, when are you coming to visit?

Okay, Josh and I of course don't hate you, but we are a bit jealous. Beautiful house! Awesome views. Witty post as usual. We really hope life is good for you there :)

That really sucks. Sorry you had such a terrible time.

(I'll be there next week. Or alternatively, whenever you tell me you're ready for visitors)

I think you are going to be very happy.

How awful! The things you will have to put up with living in Chile:)

Isabel said...

ok, well I think that in this isolated incident, I have to hate you because that house is incredible and the pictures are gorgeous.

looks like it was a fantastic weekend!

Lovely beach house. And you are a way better photographer than I am to be able to capture that! It looks like you had a great weekend :)

I only hated you for a second. It is stunning. I am so happy you got a break after the trip and the stress of transition (always stressful, no matter how prepared you are). I'll be looking at flights to Chile longingly if you need me.

Hello Angie-Change looks quite beautiful! Alfonso's dad must be so proud of his architect son, and blessed with two more grandbabies to be close to. The little wedge of garden and grass reminds me of Alfonso's talents. So glad you are relaxing with that cup on a rainy day. Don't forget to email me on Monday or Tuesdays so we can Skype-- with the kidlets? It's snowing here yesterday and today... Are you having Thanksgiving in Chile? What are those soft pillow-like objects in the food pics? Like a tortellini, or some kind of pasta? And would you label the meal that looks like chicken over grain and veggies? Yum. Great pictures.
