Living in Crystal Beach is indeed Florida living at it's best! With no traffic lights, this beach community reminds me of days long past.

This evening I made a large amount of German potato salad for Thanksgiving. One container for Ron's sister (where we are going tomorrow), one container to take to my daughter tomorrow morning so she has some and another container for our own after Thanksgiving party on Friday. What goes into it? ...

This comes to wish all of my ActiveRain family and anyone else that reads this a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for.
