I'm Back!

Hi Everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I did!

I spent the week in Naples, Florida with my sisters, in laws, nieces, nephews etc.

We went to the beach.....

......and watched the sunset.

I am saving the rest of the pictures for January or February when we could all use a little warmth and sunshine!

I will be around to visit everyone as soon as I catch up on laundry.
p.s. double click on the pictures to enlarge.
Welcome Home,

What gorgeous photos, Penny. That shot of the bird in the water makes me want to go walk on the beach. Haven't even seen the ocean this year. Gorgeous sunset! It dawned on me a couple of days ago that you were missing. Glad you are back. I love Naples. Beautiful homes there.

Welcome home, Penny. I am so glad you had a wonderful holiday with your family.

Your pictures make me homesick for south Florida. It will always be home in my heart.

Welcome home, Penny! That first photograph is so magnificent that it should be in a book. I mean it. I've never seen anything like it! The colors, the textures...wow!

I love Naples! We spent Christmas down there a few years ago and it was just gorgeous! Welcome home!


Jane, Naples, Florida said...

Penny, Sounds like you had a great time! The
weather was beautiful while you were here! What
shopping did you get in? Hope you did some!
We have a huge white Egret like that one in your
first picture who lives on our lake. I named
her "Queenie" because that is just how she acts!
Thank you for the pictures!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Welcome home Penny!

It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It must have been nice to soak up some more sun and warm weather and to spend the holiday with family.

My husband and I went to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thanksgiving and I posted photos for last week's Pink Saturday/Mosaic Monday if you want to take a peek when you get a chance. We had not been to the parade in years as usually I am home cooking but we decided to go and had so much fun!

Bella said...

Wow, gorgeous photos! Welcome home.

Debbie said...

The picture of the water rushing on shore with the bird is wonderful...so refreshing.
Glad you had a nice trip.

Kathleen Grace said...

The beach at Thanksgiving, something this Michigan girl would never think of seeing with the cold grey damp outside my window:>) I hope you had a wonderful time Penny!

see you there! said...

Oh the beach! Tell me again how long is it until summer? Our beaches are cold and grey right now.

I'm sure your sister and family enjoyed your company but... we want you back. We only loaned you out to her, LOL!


Kim said...

Omigosh Penny - those pictures are amazing! You are obviously as good at photography as you are at decorating! How nice that you got to go to Naples for Thanksgiving and visit with family. Glad you had a nice time!

Jeanne said...

Welcome home Penny, We too had a great Thanksgiving. We stayed home and had tons of company here. (25). A great time was had by all.
Love these photos and I did enlarge them. the bird is awesome and so is the sunset.
I have missed your comments. I have not had time for my computer either. Were all of you sisters together?

Hugs, Jeanne

Welcome home,Penny! Your pictures are wonderful.
It sounds like you had a great time with your sister and relatives. I will save you time and tell you that I haven't posted anything new since last we spoke. I have been crazy with work. Hopefully I will post later this week.
It's good to have you back and to see your wonderful photos again.
