I'm thankful for...


The Beach. Beautiful Sunsets. Yummy Food. Family.

Dauphin Island, Alabama was our Thanksgiving destination this year. A week full of seafood, sun, the beach and family on a 14 mile barrier island in the Gulf Coast of Alabama. What more could you ask for in the middle of winter?

Although I wasn't able to catch a single fish, I still had a great time trying (even if it was for only a couple of minutes). I was able to get my seafood fix...oysters, crawfish, crabs and shrimp. It was definitely shellfish heaven!

The family also had a great time with the drinking games...150 something beers, numerous games of beer pong and a couple rounds of Asshole equals good times for everyone. And maybe a couple of pounds of unwanted weight. Why is it you always bring back more from a vacation then when you arrived?

Nonetheless, it was a great week for giving thanks with the people you love, the food you love and the landscape that you love.

PS. We even made a new friend that week as well!
