Notes

Notes

In this video clip, Aspyn and Parker have arrived at a beach house in California, with Aspyn’s family.

Yesterday, it took them a long time to travel from Utah to California. They usually make daily video logs (or vlogs), but they didn’t make one yesterday, because it was a boring day spent just traveling.

Today they plan to visit a farmers’ market. A farmers’ market is a place where many farmers can come and sell their produce (such as fruits, vegetables, and meats) to the public directly, instead of through a store.

There are many stalls, where they can buy different types of foods.

Aspyn also gives us a brief tour of the beach house, we see her Mom, younger sister, and grandfather. She also plans to show us the beach house in more detail in a future video.

She describes the beach house as cute, while her Mom likes the open living area that extends outside.

Later, they arrive at the farmers’ market. We get to see some of the booths, stalls, or stands where people can buy produce.

Aspyn and Parker have been walking around and browsing the stalls.

Aspyn mentions that she’s hungry, and Parker says that he’s “starving”, this means that he’s really hungry. They’re both hungry because they haven’t eaten breakfast yet.

At the end of the video, Parker says that he’d like to go back to one of the first stalls they looked at because it had something that he wanted to eat.
