Happy New Year 2017



As we say goodbye to 2016 and welcome in 2017, I wish you all a happy and wonderful New Year and many thanks for coming to my little corner of the world and visiting my blog.
Very grateful to my friends, for the kindness, support and love you have shown me this year.
Your letters always make me smile.


Here are a few photos taken from a family walk along Onetangi beach this morning - the weather and sea was lovely


Tomorrow will be a  brand New Year and a wonderful gift indeed.
May 2017 bring good health, happiness and prosperity to you all.
                  Happy New Year!


hugs
Carolyn

    Many blessings to you in 2017, Carolyn.
