Santa’s Gettin’ Sandy

by The Hometown Tourist on November 18th, 2010

The Holiday’s are back!   If it wasn’t for the calendar, I would have a hard time believing that to be true after sitting on the beach this past weekend.   I mean, really?   Thanksgiving is next weekend?!   I’ve probably gained 5 pounds just typing the word Thanksgiving!   Hopefully the ongoing list of local events will help keep me busy and far away from the pumpkin pie in the fridge.

Wish you were here!
