Thanksgiving on Stone Island 11-26-2015

So many things to be grateful this year, as is the case every year, but even though I’m in a country that doesn’t recognize this American holiday, I’m not the only American here on the island. There are a whole group of wonderful people here that celebrate the holiday. Some are visitors like me and many who have traded in their residency in the US for life on the island. If you ever visit, their motives will become quite clear, and you may ponder what your life might be like with such a move.
So this year I’m not only grateful for the awesome family and friends home in the sates and elsewhere, but also for the island and the people who draw me back here each year since my first visit 3 years ago. Thank-you all for opening your door and allowing me to be part of your little piece of paradise. I am truly Grateful.

This is a little video of the Thanksgiving celebrationa and fiesta that took place atop Dr. John’s beach house with a remarkable vantage point to enjoy a feast and good company.

Isla De La Piedra Near Mazatlan Mexico

So finally got the Phantom 3 down to my little winter home away from home. This is a short video of the area I’m staying in and I’d say it gives a pretty fair view of an outstanding place to be this time of year. The Phantom 3 traveled well ( except for the gal at customs spinning the motors-YIKES).
I feel blessed and am extremely fortunate to be able to shoot & show this video. Hopefully it will make you dream a little bit as it has and does me. That’s where it all starts baby!! Hope you enjoy!!
