A belated Merry Christmas to all of you and a Happy New Year! Suzan has a great tradition of celebrating the new year by getting up early to see the first sunrise at the ocean's edge so that's what we did. It was pretty but also pretty cold, 22 degrees, brrrrr!
Each year she also takes a small, smooth stone and writes the year on it to use as a "worry stone". She then throws it back in the ocean at year's end along with all her worries and takes a new stone for the coming year. I think that's a neat tradition. Did you do anything special?
Afterwards we went to breakfast where even the people sitting at the table right next to us "didn't know there was a dog in here" until we left. They were probably only four feet away but I don't think people look down. I understand when we have a booth because I'm pretty well hidden, but these were regular table and chairs. I always find that amusing (and a testament to how good I am.)
