|George's son, Robert and family|
First, we took a trip to Palm Harbor, Florida, where we enjoyed Thanksgiving with George's son Robert and family.. Secondly, we drove to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and got to spend some time with two of my three sons and a couple of grandchildren... And thirdly, we drove to Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina (by way of the Smoky Mountain backroads and Biltmore)...WOW--what a fantastic couple of weeks!!!!
Today, I'll give you a short glance into these trips (with the exception of the Smokies and Biltmore which will come later). Hope all of you are doing fine and had a fantastic Thanksgiving like we did!!!
Above is a picture of George's son, Robert, with Melissa, Zack and Sean. We had taken a hike on a very windy day near the Courtney Campbell Causeway at Clearwater, Florida, trying to walk off some of that delicious food they prepared for us!!!!

|Fried Turkey for Thanksgiving Dinner|
Robert makes cheesecakes from scratch ---and we had two different ones while there. This is a Pumpkin Cheesecake with caramel topping... SO---other than the turkey, the cheesecakes were my favorites!!! Oh My Heart---can you say "DELICIOUS".... Wow!

|Me at Ocean Isle Beach|
One thing we love is walking on the beach (and getting lots of exercise--which we needed after all of the good food). George took this picture of me with some of my shore bird friends!!!! It was much much warmer (in the 70's) this year --when compared to last December when we about froze!!!! We love walking on the beach when there are so few people around!!! We have it all to ourselves.. I did manage to find a sand dollar this time.

|SUNSET at Ocean Isle on Dec. 5, 2013|
What is significant about this sunset is that I took this photo about the time that my sweet father-in-law (John Adams) passed away in Tennessee. I look at that photo now --and know that God was smiling down (see the Sunbeams?) saying that another of his angels was safely home. Rest in peace, John Emery Adams.

On another note, thank you so much for all of your wonderful comments on my last blog post talking about the death of George's sweet Daddy. Many of you feel as if you knew "Dad" since I had blogged about him so much. Dad's health had been getting worse --and our prayers were that he die peacefully--which he did. He was one amazing and inspirational man --who lived for 101 years, and whom I adored with all of my heart.

Be sure to check out all of my new quotes on my sidebar!!!!! After that--jump over to my Photo Blog (click HERE) for a photo I took on December 2 on our visit to see the lights of Biltmore at NIGHT.
