coastal Christmas


As the post festive lethargy starts to settle into my bones, there is really very little I can intelligently add to the conversation. Instead, allow me to take you on a whirlwind tour of the Christmas that was. 

Mild sunny days perfect for walks along the ocean, no cooking, no cleaning, ample time to hang with the Offspring, and a cozy nest in our favourite hotel made this year's version of Christmas pretty spectacular. Despite having to forgo turkey leftover day (aka Get Your Own Damned Supper Day) I could get used to this.

Great shots - looks like you had a fab Christmas away from home. No snow here either, by the way.

Looks lovely! Always nice to see TOFKAR and the Spousal Unit in photos, along with your curly locks and bright eyes.

I'll be in BC in February visiting The Canadian - my first trip to Canada in more than 20 years. Can't wait!

It was a really lovely Christmas, Eugene. The snow at home waited for us till the day after we returned.

You are too kind, Moxie. But I do hope you take lots of photos of the great Canadian Merrell adventure, to share with your fans!

That sounds and looks lovely -- which is the word I would have employed even before seeing the other comments :-> Great photos ~!

Thanks, Erik. It was a really lovely Christmas, even though it was very different from the usual.
