Jack fell quiet as he considered her question, and for a bit Loretta found herself just enjoying the moment and trying to anticipate on how he'd might answer. She grinned when he mentioned enough space to grow vegetables.

"In my old house, I used to have a small garden. I mostly grew flowers... but vegetables would be fun too." Loretta said unable to hide the excitement in her voice. It was fun to dream... even if they hadn't committed just yet...it was fun to imagine. Of course, Jack turned the question back at her causing her to pause, just trying to picture it.

"Hm..." She had a lot of ideas- putting them into words though, was another story. "Well...I guess someplace where we can see the ocean- even if it is far from the beach, it could even be closer to the mountains...and a lot of space- so we wouldn't have to worry about nosy neighbors...but enough balance that we would have some- even if they area bit farther out. Kinda...rural but not?" She said unsure how to phrase it. "...If it was our own place though... other than a garden which we both seem to be in agreement about...um...hm..." It was hard not letting her imagination run wild... but then again that was always one thing she was good at.

"Probably would be nice for it to be big enough to have guests over- like Caerwyn if he ever decided to visit- and our other friends. It would also be nice to have space for you to work at home. Like a painting room? Oh! And maybe a small library or even like a nook where we could draw or read? Something...cozy..." She found herself smiling as she pictured it.

His smile widened hearing the excitement in Loretta's tone as she spoke of having kept a garden of her own. "Why not both?" He replied, his own enthusiasm for the idea creeping into his voice. He'd always been partial to the practical benefits of growing food but money hadn't actually been an issue for years and some flowers and other decorative plants would make a place look nice. And might even be fun learning how to grow them.

Jack nodded at the mention of lots of space. Privacy would definitely be an advantage for them but it was nice having a little sense of community too. "Yeah," he said, knowing exactly what she meant. "A couple acres to ourselves," he said, "but still able to know who some neighbors are."

Guest rooms, a place to paint, and rooms they could just relax in. It all did sound nice. "Some big windows to see the ocean and get some inspiration. And one of those old fashioned libraries with armchairs and couches to read on," he replied, his own imagination beginning to run with the idea the more they talked about it. "Maybe a flat part of the roof to go out on, have a picnic when the weather's good or just sit out under the sky for awhile."

As they walked more stalls came into view, including one under a sign that read "Monterey Create" and a logo designed like a house with a picket fence around it. On the table there were pictures of houses laid out as well as some maps with markers on them with a few more photographs on a board behind the person sitting at the table. "Looks like that's the place," Jack said with a nod towards the stall.
