CH & I spent last week at St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach, Florida. It wasn't as warm as The Keys, but it didn't take nearly as long to get there. It was a good week of relaxation and strolling down memory lane.
Thomas' Donuts are a must!
We had some nice walks on the beach:
Since sunset was around 5:00, most days we were busy doing things, but we managed to get to where we could witness a pretty decent sunset:
1 morning I woke early enough to catch a glimpse of a sunrise:
I'm always on the lookout for "different" Christmas Trees. A few years ago, we went to the "Lighting of the Barrels" in Lynchburg, Tn. (home of Jack Daniels), and Marathon, Fl. has a tree made out of lobster traps. We happened to find a tree made out of crabtraps. The ornaments were made out of fishing floats.
We got back from Mass and had dinner: veggies, rice, salad, and grilled shrimp. I think that was the nicest New Year's Eve I've ever had. After dinner, we sat around a fire for a bit, then watched "New Year's Eve" (the movie).
It's still Christmas according to the Catholic Calendar, so I'm continuing to enjoy my tree for just a couple more days.
I had a nice Christmas break, and am trying to slide back into my routine. I hope you had a very nice New Year's Eve and Day!
