The following pictures sum up our annual Christmas trip to Holden Beach bringing the year to an end. What can I say besides enjoy the view, we sure did.
The youngest daughter Lora Beth joined us this year, eager to get out and enjoy the 75' temps.

Nothing like being in a swimsuit in December.
Sunset, day one as Lora Beth makes her way back to our home for the week.
No more Christmas trees on the island, no problem. Inspired by a story told recently by a friend from India, Lora Beth created our version of a Christmas tree made with beach findings and a little bling we brought from home. We named him "Buster."
I ask Lora Beth recently why she doesn't paint anymore she said, "make-up is my art."
Smalls relaxing at the beach house claiming this room as his own.
When Lora Beth was a little girl she had no idea makeup would be so important to her.
Hey it was at the house when we arrived!!!
Merry Christmas from Holden Beach.
