A belated Merry Christmas from the beach!!!


Bruce and Laura's Christmas tree!
Who knew that when we went to the RV Dreams Rally in Tennessee in April, we would be celebrating Christmas with two people that we had met there?!?!  We've made a number of lifelong friends at both rallys we have attended.  We were glad that Laura and Bruce joined us at Hungtington Beach State Park for the holidays.  After they set-up camp, we celebrated their arrival.

Jello shots!
It was a nice relaxing weekend with plenty of hiking and biking.  Of course, we had quite a few campfires too!

Bruce scrounging for firewood on the trail!!

Heave ho!

Whew - check out that stack of firewood.

Clem guarding the firewood. 

Christmas day was bright albiet a bit brisk.  A walk on the beach was in order......

Nice message etched in the sand.


Clem was enjoying swimming in the ocean!

Brrrrr!!!!!
The weekend ended all too soon and we bid Bruce and Laura a "see you down the road".  We hope to visit them next Spring. 

Our month here at Huntington Beach State Park has actually flown by!  With that said, both Dan and I are getting "hitch itch" and are ready to pack up and head a bit north to celebrate Christmas (over New Year's!) with my family.  We'll have a crowd at my parents house but it will be filled with fun and laughs.  After that, it's south to Florida!  Who knows who we will see there!

Hope we see you there. We're headed south this week-end.

You've beat me, I haven't gotten the Christmas blog up yet, just the day before. LOL. Maybe tomorrow or later tonight. :-)

Glad yours was Merry! And hope your next round is too!!

Looks like you all had a wonderful Christmas :) Loved the etching in the sand Christmas morning.
Travel safely back to NC and have a wonderful new year!

More JELLO SHOTS!!! I am beginning to wonder about you two ;o)) It was so much fun being able to spend time with you. Hope to see you at some point in Florida.

In the mean time, enjoy the fun with your family and Happy New Year!!

Safe Travels and Happy Trails....

Good to see a Christmas tree all lit up without Halloween stuff on it. It looks like Clem had fun too. Enjoy your family time.
