Our Thanksgiving Walk by the Beach

Leon and I were at Mercy Center today visiting my Sis.  It was just the three of us as the others who  live with her were off with families. Sis hasn't been feeling well, so wasn't up for traveling to our house.  And my brother was doing Thanksgiving with in-laws.  So, I cooked a turkey yesterday and we packed up turkey, stuffing, mashed potato, gravy, butternut squash, sweet potato, and store bought apple pie for our Thanksgiving dinner at her place.
For more pics of Benni see his blog
She is very fortunate to get to live here in her "retirement" years.  She lives in a house on the grounds - see the one with the hydrangeas below.

After Thanksgiving Dinner and before dessert, Leon and I took Benni for a walk around the grounds.

Mercy Retreat and Conference Center is on the beach and they were fortunate that they did not get much damage from hurricane Sandy.  Just a small part of the beach was washed out.

The spot is very serene and a great place to walk and contemplate.  Which is what people go there to do mostly.  It was quite deserted today as there were no programs going on.

So it was definitely serene and contemplative today.
