Happy Thanksgiving


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them” John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American family and friends. The world can be a crazy old place at times but as long as we remember to say please, thank you and appreciate all that is good in our lives it sure does make a difference.




Photo from one of the many beautiful beaches on the north coast of NSW. It was a bit of a bad day, full of rushing around and deadlines, but I knew that the sky at the beach would be sparkling and needed to be shared.

click photo to enlarge



As does Sky Watch Friday, yippie skippy what fun ! bloggers from all over the world posting their views of the sky.



And their sister site That’s My World, if I get a chance I’ll dig out some old photos from Plymouth MA (minus the turkey)

    I love the photo and the saying. I can almost feel my feet trudging through the sand and getting sand stuck in my toes.

    I love this photo of the path to the beach. We went camping in a Gulf side State Park so I'm late making the rounds. Hope your holiday was a happy one.
