Hoping that your New Year of 2010 starts of as well as ours has! After a delicios dinner of salad, crabcake and lobter tail it was off to a friends to ring in the New Year. The snow had really started coming down and we decided that as previously planned we were going to the beach no matter what to see snow and touch the surf. On the way to the beach we passed one of our favorite shrines that was lit up and gorgeous in the falling snow. We walked up the path and saw the open Shinto shrine. For the next two days the Japanese will be going to shrines to pray for the coming year. This is the BIG holiday for them. After our brisk trip up to the shrine we drove onto the beach and had a great time having snow on our shoes and our fingers in the surf :) It had always been a dream of ours to see snow on a beach. Now we are exhausted and are off to bed after wishing Happy New Years to those of you we could reach on the phone. We love you all very much!!!!!!
