For Thanksgiving this year, my family escaped the cold in favor of Canon Beach. It was a great time to visit the beach. The clear weather that brought such cold temperatures inland meant blue skies and sunshine on the coast.

I suppose it's a good thing that it's getting to that time of year when it's either too wet or too cold to plant.
