WordPress definitely needs a ❤ button! This photo is fabulous and can't help but make everyone smile!
Thanks, Donna. We saw three beachy Christmas trees on our walk that day.
Sea Sand’s greetings?! Wow. So very So-Cal indeed. 😛
And to you as well! 🙂
Well, you know I’m rather fond of puns. 🙂
And I’m fond of you for your fondness for puns!
Holiday greetings from very cold and windy New Hampshire!
I love seeing pictures of the snow, but I prefer our sun (yes, I’m a wimp). Enjoy your holiday!
Cheers to so cal (truly a special place) and sand and Xmas do go well together
I’ve known no other type of Christmas, so I think so too 🙂
Happy Happy holidays, Janis! Sandy Claws and all (get it?!)
Haha! Yes, I get it. Have a great Christmas!
Merry Christmas from what will soon be a very cold spot. We are predicted to have the coldest Christmas in 20 years. Bummer. I’ll take sun and sand anytime.
Oh, sorry to hear that you are in the path of that super storm… it sounds terrible. Even airlines are letting people change/cancel their flights. Stay safe, Kate!
We are not getting the huge snow so that’s good. At this point, I’m not going out for anything except Starbucks and only if it’s safe.
That’s awesome, Janis! I sure enjoyed a few days of 60+ degree temps during my short visit over the weekend. Enjoy your Christmas holiday!
I hadn’t realized that your visit was so short… did your daughter find a dress?
Arrived Friday home Tuesday. She did, it’s gorgeous. I found a mother of the bride dress, too at the same store. I enjoyed your 65 degree warmth and sunshine! It’s nice to have another white Christmas though.
Thank you for my smile(s) always, Janis. Enjoy the holiday season with your loved ones❤️ Erica
Glad I made you smile, Erica 🙂 Have a warm, wonderful holiday!
Happy holidays, Janis and Paul. And festive greetings from Colombia. Xxx
I’m so happy that you will be celebrating on the road with Thirsty Bella! Have a great holiday!
That’s so cool! Just a random tree on a beach!!
I loved that too! Someone took the time to share their joy with the rest of us.
I am smiling. What a great tree. And it’s a real on at that. Enjoy your holidays.
Thank you… enjoy your holidays too!
Merry Christmas Janis! 🔔🎉🎅🎁🎄
Merry Christmas, Cindy!
i wish you a merry christmas
Thank you. I hope you have a lovely Christmas too.
We have Christmas trees on the beach near us, but none of them is decorated as nicely as that one.
Merry Christmas, Janis.
I loved all the beachy decorations… and Santa’s costume.
Just. So. Cheerful! I do hope Santa remembered his sunblock. Wishing you and your family the merriest of Christmases, Janis!
Thank you, Mary! You are right about the sunblock… Santa probably isn’t used to all that sun.
Hi Janis, this scene looks very familiar. We are expecting a couple of days in the 30’s this weekend. I’m okay with that, so long as it leaves quickly.
Yikes… 30s in Florida? At least you aren’t in the path of the super storm, I guess. Have a great holiday!
Merry Christmas to all!
To you, also. 🙂
So cute! So SoCal! Sea-sands greetings to you and Paul 💕
Best wishes to you and your family (including, of course, Bowser)!
“Sea Sand’s greetings” So clever. I’m jealous. Currently in Denver we’re at -14°F with 4-5″ of snow.
Oh, that sounds cold! I whine when I have to wear a jacket.
To you, also 🙂
I love that! Merry Christmas, Janis! – Marty
Thanks, Marty. Happy holidays to you!
Merry Christmas! It’s eight degrees here and the temps are still dropping…..
Yikes! That sounds bone-chilling cold. Have a warm (as much as possible), wonderful Christmas, Ann!
Not quite Christmas as we know it here! Have a great time.
No, I imagine the beach and Christmas aren’t normally thought of together in the Northern Hemisphere, but it’s what I’m used to. Enjoy your Christmas celebrations, Anabel!
Perfect Janis! We drove up the California coast a bit on our way back home a couple weeks ago. Didn’t get as far South as SD, but enjoyed spending a night in SLO and driving through the red woods. Cold and rainy, but at least we did it after too many years.
That sounds lovely! I’m glad you had the opportunity to enjoy the coast and the redwoods.
Merry Christmas Janis! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season🎄❤️
Thank you, Lynn. I hope you have a wonderful holiday also!
Haha!! That’s a great Christmas greeting! Merry Christmas, Janis!! I hope you and yours have a lovely holiday.
I feel a little guilty having such nice weather while others are dealing with a massive winter storm… but I’ll take it 🙂 Have a great holiday!
So fun! This might be our last Christmas in Florida (providing our home sale goes through) and it’s 22 degrees. That’s just not right, LOL. So thank you for the beachy holiday greeting! Wishing you a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
I’ve been reading about the cold temps in Florida… yikes! We’ve been so fortunate to have shorts and t-shirt weather the last few days and everyone (and, I mean EVERYONE) is out enjoying our glorious sunshine.
Very clever Janis. Wish I was looking at this view here in Michigan. Best to you for the holidays and beyond.
Thank you, Linda. We’ve been having unseasonably warm weather lately. I kind of feel guilty when I read about what’s happening elsewhere… but I’ll take it!
I would prefer the sun and hot weather and even drought conditions to this brutal cold and wind any day Janis.
Your Christmas card is so clever Janis. We had 30’s on our Florida beach, even too cold for me after all my years of snow in New Hampshire. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day.
Thank you! We had a lovely Christmas, spent wondering around Coronado Island where the Famous Hotel Del Coronado is located. It was a sparkly day.
Happy 😂 holiday season.
I had a So-Cal Christmas, too (sort of): Death Valley. Back home now and freezing my tush off! Happy New Year!
Not exactly SoCal, but they certainly have a lot of sand there! We are having a cold streak too, but I imagine most of the country would laugh at what we consider “cold.” Have a great New Year!
I would definitely laugh. 😉
