We celebrated American Thanksgiving last Thursday at Calabash Bight Yacht Club, or our friends' Kelly and Alex's place. 6 Canadians, 6 Americans, 1 Dutchman, 1 turkey, 1 ham and all the fixings, several pies and lots of laughs. I came away with a couple of nice plants and some cuttings.
I even was offered a plate of leftovers, much appreciated. The Captain laughed when I pulled what I thought was a "silver bullet" out of a piece of ham. I figured that's how the poor piggie met his fate but John said it was the end of a meat thermometor. Lori had asked Kelly to watch for it in the soup, having no idea it had travelled all the way to Oak Ridge in my leftovers. Mark picked it up the next day and all is well.
We shopped for cool whip for the pies in first Coxen's Hole, where there was none and then in French Harbour, where we found it. Our favorite little lunch place in Coxens Hole was closed but we found an even better spot, right beside the cruise ships. Local prices, the musicn I love and lots of happy tourists made for a fun time. I was encouraged to see 2 ships in port and John saw 3 yesterday, two at the downtown Coxen's Hole terminal and one at the new Mahogany Bay terminal, just open this week.
