Dream one feels right. I think it is an omen that we will be meeting up again and a sign that I should not get sidetracked from the work I am currently doing.
Dream two seems a bit more symbolic in that I feel that I am separating from the in-laws and I am fine with that, but what about my children and how this separation affects my relationship with them? I almost feel like the stole/wrap/jacket is an excuse to get off the ship. Hmmm?
I love your interpretation of the seaside village and stores. That feels spot on.
