A tropical Thanksgiving

A Guamian Santa being drawn, not by a reindeer, but by a ox (I think that's what that is!).

Some rain clouds rolling in over the Philippine Sea.

This Thanksgiving I decided to spend the long weekend in the tropics, so I flew to Guam, in the Northern Marianas Islands. It's only a 4 hour flight and is one of the easiest trips I've ever taken! I rented a car and got to drive which was a lot of fun and spent the weekend. Guam's beaches are beautiful and so empty compared to Hawaii. I did some hiking and swimming, along with a lot of shopping, including at the world's largest K Mart! It was a great trip and I'm really glad I got the chance to go.
