Christmas Morning

Christmas morning in Surfside Beach was a new experience for Paul and I. I awoke this morning to an awesome sunrise over the ocean (no photo though as I was too cozy), Christmas music playing in the bedroom and a cute guy. A perfect Christmas to me.

Although it was not as warm as we would have liked, the sun was shining and the wind was minimal, so we dressed warmly and had our omelettes and coffee on the deck. Watching the waves roll in to the sound of Christmas music was really nice.

The ocean was quite lovely to watch this morning with the rolling waves crashing on the beach.

Another treat this morning was seeing several blue birds flying about in the grasses on the dunes.

Although Paul and I feel that giving to the less fortunate is the best gift giving approach to Christmas for us, my friend Irm did gift me with this beautiful angel she made from shells. I will certainly treasure this thoughtful gift. Irm's art with shells is amazing.

Well, our table is set for our Christmas dinner this evening and our chicken will be stuffed and in the oven within the hour. I know one person who can hardly wait!

Merry Christmas from our home to yours.


  1. Looks like you had a lovely day. Merry Christmas!

  2. A very happy Boxing Day to you both, Marilyn and Paul.

    How is the horrid weather, wind and snowfall included, affecting you both along the coastline?

    It is still sunny, a few showers, and grass is growing here in the West. Give us another month, then, ...

  3. Merry Christmas. Hope the Christmas Chicken was delicious.
