A Post Thanksgiving Stroll

 Benicia is simply gorgeous this time of year. First street from the water . . .
. . . right up to St. Paul's.  It's simply beautiful.  We took a walk on Thanksgiving day.  We saw about three people the whole time. 
All of the shops had their Christmas regalia, in preparation for the biggest shopping day of the year. 

Above Benicia Bay Company the windows were open and Thanksgiving dinner noises could be heard.  The Dot and I were delighted.  We stopped to listen for a minute or two.

These geese saw us coming and ran the other way.  They don't realize we eat turkey on Thanksgiving, not goose.  Plus we were full.

Autumn By the Water

It was a beautiful day today.  Hub and I walked down to the water.  It's supposed to rain and we were hoping to get caught in it.  It was warm and calm.  The clouds were heavy.  The water birds were happy.  I have a raw turkey in my refrigerator and people coming.  Life is good.

Benicia in the Chronicle

There was a nice little piece on our little town in the San Francisco Chronicle this week.  It's just a short piece, but includes a little history and a lot of links.  They highlight Union Hotel but don't mention that it's a great place for a glass of wine and some of the most delicious crab cakes you'll ever eat.  And live music Thursday nights with my friend Russell Hands as drummer.

And in the "Getting There" section they forgot to say go outside and hang a left.
