We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got your fill of turkey, stuffing, mash potatoes and gravy! Here's an update on our Thanksgiving this last week~
Griff arrived Sunday afternoon in Sandestin at the Baytowne Marina to spend Thanksgiving week with us on the boat. It has been three months since we had seen him last and it was WONDERFUL to see him. We arrived at the marina from Pensacola on Saturday afternoon and couldn't wait for him to fly in Sunday!
It was a little cooler in Sandestin over the week, but warmer than both Colorado and Minnesota. We did the beach, fished, spent time at the Bay Towne Wharf, biked and walked everywhere, shopped, hit the fitness center, and ate a lot of good food! It was a great week with the blue eyed boy!
The beaches in Sandestin were beautiful! I never expected them to have white sand and they were pristine. There were a few folks around spending Thanksgiving week, like us, enjoying the resort and beach even though it was a bit chilly!
We were inspired by all the sport fishing boats in the marina, so decided to head out with a guide fishing one afternoon. We had a blast but didn't catch anything big enough to keep.
Sandestin Resort went crazy with Christmas decorating! We all loved it! There wasn't any snow but there was a lot of spirit! They even had an ice rink! It was tiny but they had one!
Here are a few other shots from around the property.....
It was wonderful to have Griff here with us for the holiday. Of course we missed Sam and we missed our traditional Thanksgiving back in Minnesota (we all missed Grampa's gravy!). It was fun to change it up this year on the Loop and spend Thanksgiving in a warmer climate, but we look forward to coming home for Christmas and spending time with family and friends. We miss you all so much!
