Sunset Beach, North Carolina

Hello,

I am so behind in sharing photos, these are from our visit to my sister's place in North Carolina for Christmas 12/24/16. We enjoyed several walks on the closest beach called Sunset Beach. I hope you enjoy these scenes from our walk.


Sky reflection.


Plovers and maybe a Willet?


A cute Plover.


Silhouettes of my sister, BIL and hubby.


A cool dramatic sky and reflection.


Christmas Day walk on the Sunset Beach, beautiful day.



We hiked three miles round trip on the beach to see this famous mailbox. Sharing our visit , we wrote our names on the book inside the mailbox. Here is a link to a story about the Kindred Spirit Mailbox




"A thankful heart is a happy heart."

My list of thankful things:
Thankful for my family.
I am thankful for all my happy memories.



I hope you enjoyed my post and photos. Thank you for your visit and comments on my post. Enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Thanks to Michelle for the meme Thankful Thursday

I am also linking up to Skywatch Friday, I hope to see you there.
Thank you to Sylvia, Yogi and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.

  7. I like your list of thankful things.
    It is important to appreciate things in life,
    In our busy schedules, we often forget it.

    Enjoy your day !
    I am preparing a little party for my youngest brother's 50th celebration this afternoon..
    Outside it`s sunny and cold.
    A perfect day.

    Love Anne-Mari
