Treasure hunt

Saturday, April 4, 2009

Getting more things set aside for the Stuff Swap at Pedro's tonight. It's always like a treasure hunt - you just never know what will turn up.

Lyle and Don - are down on the veranda jamming. They sound great. What a treat to hear good live music in your own home on a sunny San Pedro afternoon. They are playing songs like Chery Bomb and run around Sue.

Thanks to Pedro I got biggest surprise at the stuff swap. He arranged a party to celebrate my winning public vote for Lonely Planet travel blog awards. Pedro enlisted Pauls help to get people there who might not have been planning to come to the swap - had someone decorate and a lovely cake made by Rebecca. I also got a worlds best blogger certificate from Shuffles and RLD and Joanne made me a fantastic taco trophy.

Swap was good - I was not sure if it would be as busy as usual as a few people are out of town but we got a decent amount of stuff and everyone seemed happy to find some treasures. People kept showing up staggered with stuff - made it fun as every time someone brought more in we would all wander back to the table and have a fresh look.

Celebrating 1st place win for LP public vote with 35% and 1262 votes
