We got up fairly early this morning, and Tim said at some point "I want to take you somewhere around 10am." We spoke with our niece Jean (who has a birthday today) and then drove over to the bakery and coffee place on the beach (our little town has a brewpub, a bakery, a coffee place, a taco shack, and a five star restaurant all gathered together around the rock). We had holiday coffees (peppermint mocha for me, gingerbread latte for Tim) and some pastry, and then headed out on a walk.
The beach at the Cape was unwalkable, as the tides are high and there has been significant erosion. Plus it was right around high tide, so we walked along the dunes and through one of the little neighborhoods before coming home.
Near this little bridge was this:
Not in anyone's yard, just on a little pine tree in the beach grass. Such a delightful surprise.
Sunset last night
We also hung lights in the popout windows.
May your days be merry and bright.
