Only One Week To Go…..

Standard

I know it may seem funny, but I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year.  The world seems so foreign sometimes, to what I remember it being just a short time ago.  I have found myself counting my blessings in recent weeks and wondering too, about some very simple things in life.

  I wonder where little animals go when it is terribly stormy outside.  I then feel blessed that I am safe and sound in my surroundings.  There are so many people on this planet that are lost and displaced.  I need to remember them and with that, feel grateful for all I have.

Thanksgiving is at my house this year.  I can’t wait for my young adults to spend time together and find more memories to share.  Life is about these shared times.  It is these simple pleasures in life that I love so very much.

I hope all of you have a blessed Thanksgiving.  It’s only a week away!

Last weekend, before the storm moved onto the land, we went into the bay area for a little distraction.  We had lunch at The Green’s on Fort Mason in San Francisco.  If you’ve never been; the food is always delicious, the view spectacular, and it is a peaceful place.

Point Bonita Lighthouse

On the way back across the bay we decided to stop to see Point Bonita Lighthouse at The Marin Headlands.  We had tried once before but the tunnel that leads to the lighthouse was closed.  I had remembered it being open until 4:00.  We got there and the sign read; closed at 3:30.  We had fifteen minutes to reach the lighthouse and grab a couple of photos.

Watching the Waves

Off we went.  I was so happy that it was all downhill getting there.  It’s a magnificent place.  We must return on another beautiful day.  The five-minute tour is just not enough time to take it all in.  We took our time walking back up the hill, we met the lighthouse docents, and the view was amazing.

Bird Island

On the way to our Halloween engagement, we passed by the same area that I wrote about in my last blog.  This photo was taken from the other side of Hwy 37.  There were hundreds of tiny birds all resting and flocked together.  They looked like a little bird island in the water.  I need to return to this spot too, as I think a sunset here would be stunning.  I do so love California’s Waterways.
