Christmas day Joanie fixed a country ham and mashed potatoes that we took to Candle's house where we enjoyed Christmas afternoon dinner. The day after Christmas, we took some goodies out to Emerald Isle where our nephews had rented a beach cottage for the holidays. Angie made an Italian Christmas dinner of stuffed shells and meatballs and sausage. Wow!
Nephew David, Joanie, nephew CJ and myself.

We spent much of the afternoon watching a shrimp trawler steam up and down the beach in front of us and a large pod of dolphins that feasted on the bounty fore and aft of the trawler.
