We are honored by a visit from the two Best Bloggers in the Whole Wide World!!!

OK, OK, so maybe there might be a couple of "better" bloggers in the whole world, but you couldn't prove it by me. 

Nancy and Mary continue to win awards for excellence each year...but, more than that, they actually perform a wonderful service for a huge number of folks.

http://watsontravels.blogspot.com/ is a wonderful travel blog that is used as a bible for many readers, as Nancy and Chuck travel to all corners of the world, and send back award winning photos and commentary.  They just seem to get to the heart of every place they visit.  In fact, they do such a good job, that I'm sure that many of their "armchair" readers feel it's the next best thing to going on the trip for themselves--I know I do!

http://southofzero.wordpress.com/ written by Mary, with comments and suggestions by hubby Steve, has become the premiere blog clearing house for bloggers who are writing about Ecuador, or by people wishing to move here soon, but who wish to describe all of the trials and tribulations of "gettin' ready to git ready"!  I am sure that thousands of folks "tune in" to Mary's blog each morning to get the "executive summary" about Ecuadorean blogdom...

The fun began yesterday when they all arrived, and we showed Nancy and Chuck to their digs in the new, just completed Alta Suite, and Mary her bedroom for the night in one of our guest bedrooms.

The weather was perfect as we met for drinks on the deck to discuss blogging, people,  and places we know, while watching the waves crash onto the beach...take a look...

 

 

 

When the ocean is literally at you "toe-tips", it is impossible not to take a sample of the bathtub warm water...

 

These two ladies right here are responsible for a whale of lot of good writing, good fun, and good info, and for giving a huge number of people a taste for what's it like to live in and love Ecuador...thanks mucho, Nancy and Mary...

 

 

 

We had a  beautiful clear sky as the sun dropped into the sea, so we all kept our eyeballs pealed looking for that Green Flash...and by golly, 4 out of 5 of us saw a brilliant emerald green dot appear on the top of the sun as it slid into the water... 

We chose to stay home for home cooking Saturday night, and enjoyed one of Roxanne's most popular dishes...ummmmmm good!

It was a real treat to hear all the stories and background from these two wonderful bloggers.  So many of us just toil along thinking that the weird things that happen in blog-world, only happen to us--now I find...everyone gets to participate...

After having a light breakfast, the group plans to head out in their new car to Cuenca, where they are going to have a huge hoop-la of Cuenca bloggers at the California Kitchen.

I have a feeling that the get together of bloggers will be a lot like Gringo night where you can't hear anyone talk, so I have a suggestion for you Cuenca Bloggers...

If you have a few questions that you would like to ask Mary, why don't you just write them down and pass them along,  when you can...that way she can get to you in a sane and orderly environment...a little later...
