My Mobile Market Friday office!
I have very limited markets in my area, and so any time I get to travel, it's a GREAT opportunity to share some new markets!!! Today I'm giving you some BIG HINTS as far as where the heck DREEMIE is (if you've been collecting clues!)
And don't forget...you don't know what my final question is going to be....so be sure to keep all your guesses to yourself for now...or else you might be giving someone else a huge advantage over you hehehe
Let's get started!!!
I will show you where my mobile office was today ...
It started here on a beautiful bench with tropical breezes and yummy smells all around! Gotta love the free wifi that comes with being on the port too!!!
And it finished here...on the Observation Lounge ..relaxing as the horn bleeeew and we pulled out, headed to our next destination!
But this is all about markets, right? Come, hold my hand as we embark on the markets of Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
Here, I had to stop for a pose with this little scenic shot! BVI= British Virgin Islands!
Then we walked down this main street. Each sland in the Caribbean has a very specific feel. The fact that this one is a British island gives it a more "posh" feel to me. This is what the beautiful "main street" feels like.
Even when you walk past the stores, this is what you see between them... lovely, right?
And let's take a look at some of the "wares" that they have to delight.
And heheh...of vourse I had to take a pic of this cute little story about the Pirate!! lol and special pens (my specialty) and....sea glass earrings! (pretty nice, right @bluefinstudios?)
I don't mind that these shops are fancier, and it certainly comes with many perks, but I would always prefer to head deeper into the island to try to feel more of the native culture. We didn't have much time! So it's not like we could delve too deep, but here is where we headed a few streets further.
We met lovely Veronica and her husband Earl. We talked while we shopped and she told us a bit about her family and life on the island. You know, when I go shopping for things- it's not the price that pulls me in. I don't like haggling and I don't like being sold high prices because I'm American. I will pay something fair every time, but I will always gravitate towards a kind person, regardless of the price.
And that is the heart of Veronica and Earl. They are the kind of people that make you want to invite yourself to their house for tea and a chat, hehe! And I bet that they would oblige too!
Hi Veronica and Earl! (I got their email address so they could see my blog 💕)
We ended up buying a necklace, a pirate patch( hehe you know I had to get the pirate patch!) and two magnets from them.
Then we went down a bit to find some more goodies. Again, the people who pulled me in with their kind chatter are the ones who won my business. I love supporting businesses who make people feel special. We need to keep them around for a long time!
Then we needed to find out where the local market was... and of course for market Friday...this was mandatory!
Check out all the little treats that are local that we don't have with us. The tasty drinks! The seasonings! Check out the coconut oil, and how they are in the different bottles! hehehe And they even have gluten free things for me! hehe
And we HAD to take a peek at the hot deli section, and we were not disappointed!!! We grabbed a few items and then walked to a little park section to eat our DELICIOUS ribs! hehe
Along the way we saw a momma chicken and all her little chicks! lol and then ...maybe the daddy too?? lol
Finally, it was time to head back, and I saw one last picture that had to be taken! hehhee
Hope you thoroughly enjoyed this Market Friday with me!!

Who's your daddy? I don't think he is the daddy rooster, although he might be. They just keep those hens in babies all year long!
I still love the site of the chickens on the loose, a common site in many parts of the world, even home @dreemsteem! No lie! Well, you know as there are some in California, Hawaii, and Key West, Florida. Also, some in Miami, Florida, although that was new to me! Be on the lookout if you ever go to those areas!
The people in the Caribbean are such kind a beautiful of heart. I have found that to be true, almost anywhere I go there. From the busy streets in the Bahamas to remote places on the island of Bonaire. the islands have incredible beauty, but, for me, it is all about the people. I can see it is for you too. Earl and Veronica are great examples of it. You pick them well. You are a great people-picker. It is a gift. 😍
You really skimmed the island for the shopping eats and somethings to buy. You really made good use while you were visiting there. Wait! Where did you find those ribs? Somehow, I missed that place! Were they good? If they were, I will be on the lookout for the ribs next time I am down that way! Never underestimate the value of a good rib. Glad you fed your guy! He is cruising! He should be eating 24/7!
I love that you took #MarketFriday along! It has been awesome and it was almost, almost like going on another cruise, with the DreemTeam. Thank you for taking us! #MarketFriday began as a way to reach out across the globe and learn about different cultures through their markets, especially local markets and farmers' markets, and eventually branched out and evolved over time from straight shopping to a cultural affair as it highlights how we differ and then again, how much we are alike. We have become a melting pot of culture, but it is still the Rituals, Festivals, food, architecture, and even your language/languages that separate us... Along with the fact that these things are normal for us. There are unwritten rules that rule our social behaviors. I see this as allowing for increased tolerance between cultures and nations, and opportunities to come together on an even playing ground. A strong culture can be beneficial to a country as it promotes unity, especially during a crisis, peaceful debate, and open dialogue. I have learned so much about all of you and it has been an amazing experience. I can only hope that learning about each other can help us work together for a peaceful world. Thank you for being a part of #MarketFriday
