I did a little bit of cooking for Thanksgiving this year - but not my typical amount. It was nice to spend time with family without the added pressure of cooking copious amounts of food. Instead, my extended family rented a beach house at Cape Hatteras.I took this picture Saturday morning when my girls, my husband and I went to the beach to search for shells. We found some perfectly whole shells -- but mostly were so battered by the surf that we only recovered interesting little bits -- little leftovers. Other beachcombers had gone through the piles of shells discarded by the ocean....but we still managed to find a few perfect, whole shells.
Just like our Thanksgiving meal, the leftovers were the best part. My girls were blissful and it was a absolutely beautiful day.
