Beach, blue skies, blessings. . . . . . . . . .

 As soon as we checked into the hotel today I was on the balcony, tenth floor, 
taking photos as the brown pelicans did their usual 'fly by' to welcome us!
The weather is close to perfect for late November, around 70F all afternoon, 
great for boardwalk strolls and watching children making sandcastles, some
 even swimming in the blue Atlantic Ocean!

Tonight we watched the lighting of the Christmas decorations around the lake
and along the ocean board walk, still comfortably warm, only a sweater 
required, many people in shorts and T-shirts.
This is late Autumn in the southeast, and we are grateful we live here in
 beautiful North Carolina.


  1. It sounds just lovely, Mary. Enjoy! It's dark and drizzly here these days, and I'm very thankful to see the sun peek out once in awhile.

  2. Wow - I've never seen pelicans in flight, and I've never had Christmas in shorts and t-shirt :-)
    I like the "Christmas by the Sea" sign, and hope you will show us pictures of the lit-up boardwalk.

  3. Beautiful skies, beautiful beach, and gorgeous Autumn weather. What a great time to be at the seaside.

  4. Looks like lovely weather. Here is is finally time to put the short sleeves away as we've finally gotten cooler. Even had a bit of rain overnight. Best wishes, Tammy

  5. What a way to end the Thanksgiving holiday and begin the Christmas one. Glad you had good weather for it.

  6. Just lovely! I love photos of sea grasses swaying by the ocean side.

  7. NC really is a wonderful state...well, from everythign I;ve read and seen online, anyway!
