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,
Penny

  2. 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.

  13. 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!

  16. 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!

  19. 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!

  20. 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!
