Window Shopping and Wishing
souvenir, but usually looking is 'enough' to satisfy. What kinds of things do you like to observe when window shopping? Do different family members have different things they look for? In our household, I tend to look for tea things and linens, but a good bookstore is always welcome. When the boys were little, of course it was the closest toy store of the gadget section of a tourist shop. They soon outgrew that and have progressed to bookstores and any type of electronics store. There's one wonderful Pirate Shop I know they enjoy as well. Brent on the other hand is satisfied simply with a fudge shop. He's generally easy to please when it comes to his 'tourist' preferences. On the Oregon coast, a good kite shop is always a welcome respite from general browsing and the guys have been known to buy a nice kite or two to try out along the shore. I watch the flying action. . .nibble some of Brent's fudge. . .and have a cuppa tea from my thermos. Today. . .I'm wishing I were at the sea. . .
