Happy Holiday

Did you have a good Thanksgiving?  We did.  We ran off to the Monterey Bay area - specifically Soquel - for a family get-together.  Our kids gathered from across the country, and we had 5 days in a VRBO home.  If you've never tried VRBO for a vacation, I recommend it.  It was a great base of operations, easily accessible from north or central CA, with plenty of room to play catch-up.  It was great!
 There was a nearby park for Penny,
 and colorful Capitola wharf for the grown-ups.
 The pelicans were out and about on Thanksgiving, scooping up fish with ease.
We went to Santa Cruz for dinner one night, to Johnny's Harborside Restaurant.  As you might have guessed, it overlooked the harbor.
 We even had space to set up a sewing area.  This is my daughter-in-law, hard at work.
 She sewed all day Saturday,
 And before bedtime, she had this fun string of Advent pockets.
Yes, we have much to be thankful for.  I hope your holiday was as filled with blessings.
