A NON-TRADITIONAL THANKSGIVING!




We had a non-traditional Thanksgiving this year.  Cudjoe and I left early, early Thanksgiving morning and drove to Miramar Beach, Florida, and spent a week at Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort.


The Christmas decorations were fabulous.  I absolutely love the lights on the palm trees.  I wish I had a palm tree so I could decorate it this way!!



I did a lot of Christmas shopping and was checking out HomeGoods to see if they had an owl tree topper for my Christmas tree.  (They did not.)


And I did some shopping here, as well.  The best thing was a new pair of jeans for myself!  These two favorite stores are right next door to each other, and there is a Fresh Market nearby.  I was in heaven!


Little Miss Molly was out for her morning walk with "her daddy".  Our condo was on this par 5 on the Baytowne Golf Course at Sandestin.  The weather was beautiful.


This is the Boathouse Oyster Bar in Destin.  It's a tradition that we eat there while staying in the Destin area.  Cudjoe loves oysters, and he really likes eating here.


And, of course, the main reason we went was for the golf.  This wasn't such a hard shot for this big guy!


This palm tree saved my drive from going into the hazard.  It ricocheted off this tree and landed back in the fairway!!


We also ate out every night.  What a treat!!  This dish above was from the Ocean Club Restaurant, which is also one of our favorite places to eat.  This is their chicken piccata.  I absolutely love this dish, and always get it when we go there.


We like to go to the Happy Hours at the local restaurants.  One of our favorites is Fleming's This is a Filet Mignon Flatbread Pizza.  Wow!  It was delicious.


These guys and gals make their home on the Par 3, Number 16, on the Links Golf Course.  They are fun to watch!


This is one of the last pictures I have of my dog, Gracie.  She turned 14 in November and was not in good health.  She made the trip to Destin with us, but sadly I had to have her put down the week after we got home.  I have to say I am truly heartbroken.  She was the very best little girl.  Rest in Peace, My Sweet Little Angel!


We did have a beautiful trip playing golf, going for walks with our dogs, Christmas shopping, and eating out at great restaurants!
We just may make it a tradition.
