We are unpacked now….and just about caught up. The girls and I have even had some days to work on a few projects and Christmas decorating ideas.. I can tell you I am loving every bit of that. Working together with them, and making Christmas decorations with the little grandsons of mine is at the top of my list.
The beach is beautiful even in Winter.. yes, I can get used to this. Shorty found out that she likes being a beach bum as much as being a ranch dog, and wearing a leash has become a positive thing to her, it means she gets to go for walks and sometimes to the beach, rather than the vet or groomer. Chasing Seagulls is as much fun as chasing cows, and she doesn't get into trouble for chasing Seagulls. On her first trip to the beach she went a little cuckoo; she ran after those birds, and probably would have kept running to Georgia if Luke hadn't caught up with her.
Here is the front of our cozy home.
…. the front entry.

A view of our kitchen and dining room.
This little condo of Benjamin and Elizabeth is lovely and full of happy memories.
The family room has a nice gas fire place, and opens onto the deck which over looks the pond.
A happy memory of our chickens;
A Florida Rooster? Well perhaps not, but he is a neighborly fellow who instead of a "cocka doodle do", stands quietly by and gives us his company while we have our coffee in the morning (unless Shorty sees him first…. then she goes after him like she did those Seagulls, and away he flies. On the other side of this deck railing, is the little pond where we enjoy the coming and going of Egrets and other beautiful water birds.
Luke and Shorty at the beach.
Shorty is gazing off into the distance at the Seagulls.
Toby is napping as he stands in the sun.. haha.
The ocean is just beautiful to me… do you see the Cruise ship in the distance?
