Woke up to a nasty fog but it was nice to open Ramona’s door and have the ocean right there…I knew this was going to be an easy day so I relaxed put on some music and made French toast, a nice cuppa and read 2 newspapers and finally got on the road around 11.30am.
I was only going a short distance to
and I found a good place to park!!
I then set off on foot to explore the lovely little town.
There was a Hollywood movie made here in the 90’s which was a big box office flop I think Robert DeNero was in it anyway this building above is one left over from the film!!
Getting back to the post headline I was walking down this narrow lane when I heard a voice from behind saying “That is a great shirt”. I was wearing one of my Mexican soccer shirts and I turned around and here were this couple..we stopped and chatted and they cordially invited me into their workshop!!!
It was the most amazing 40 minutes I have spent for a while…the couple are one of only 8 manufacturers in North American of hand carved wooden flutes!!!!
The owner is an aero space engineer and he uses this technology on his flutes…the wood comes from Africa and is very heavy and the first thing he does is drill a hole in the centre all the way through then it sits in this room for 3 years!!!!
It was so kind of them to show me around and spend time with me they were both very proud of their showroom and workshop and I have a different understanding of the craft and shall always think of them when I hear a flute!!!!
After this photo the fog started to roll in
It was about 4pm so a good time to head back to Ramona and finish my novel. Then sort the underneath compartments out, yes again!!!
Then head to the library and do the blog and then back to the Visitors Centre where I am going to spend the night.
I am meeting Paula and Jerry here tomorrow afternoon so that will be fun……..
