My daughter is home for Thanksgiving.
She called me around 4:30 Friday morning to let me know she was on the road, and continued with periodic updates along her route. We had our first family dinner at home since March – the last time she was here, visiting during her Spring Break from school.
It’s weird having a child old enough that she “visits” instead of moves back in between school breaks.
Her 13-hour, marathon road trip meant that I still went out on my Saturday photo hike, because I knew she would sleep late.
I stayed close and made the short drive to the Gulf again, hanging out at Henderson Beach State Park and Crystal Beach, both near Destin, FL., thankful that I have such a beautiful place to visit anytime I want.
