thanksgiving at the beach, ii

I went by the beach on Thanksgiving morning - it was a hoot. Maybe it was the holiday, maybe it was the surf, maybe both, but the place was packed. Surfers were everywhere you looked - some gettin ready to go out, some comin back in, others standin in groups, waxin boards, you name it. It was a great way to start the day and remind me why I love being here.

I started this blog a year ago with my first (real) post about Thanksgiving at the beach. The blog is actually part of my work website. A year later, that website is finally looking like it may be done soon. Work has thankfully been steady enough to allow me be my own boss for the last year. And the blog has matured to be an (almost) daily habit that has unexpectedly kept and brought me closer to people I wouldn't have expected.

It was another nice day at the beach this year. Cooler, but still nice. I talked to everyone in my family as the phone got passed around and Dad emailed me pics of what I missed (see his blog). My friend Casey came over for turkey and pecan pie (both a little undercooked... patience, my friend!), and I spent most of the evening working. Still, a nice day with no shortage of things to be thankful for.
