Thursday, November 22 to Sunday, November 25, 2012

We had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving Day.  Marilyn and Carolyn Jarvis spent the day getting dinner ready.  Carolyn roasted the turkey between our two rigs.  20121122_133358  Here they have all of the dishes set out so we can start “dipping” (as they say in South Carolina) our plates for all of the fixin’s.  20121122_153052  Next, we start actually filling our plates.  20121122_15315920121122_153238  There was definitely more than we could eat at that meal.  In addition to the turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, mashed white potatoes, string beans, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, etc., Marilyn made a delicious Pumpkin Cheese Cake Pie.

Friday, we drove up to Marineland.  20121123_160652  For our admission of $15.50 for two, we got a tour of the current dolphin tanks plus some historical information.  Marineland’s focus is educating people about the Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin.  The place is under construction (rebuilding).  It does have  nice  views of the Atlantic Ocean.  20121123_143433   Since we had had a big BBQ lunch out, we had turkey sandwiches for dinner. 

Saturday, the ladies went shopping while Larry and I did some work around the house.  Dinner was leftovers, and they were still a great feast. 20121124_183634

Sunday, after ordering some Rx’s and having our mail sent once more to the campground here in Daytona Beach, we drove to the Canaveral National Sea Shore where we toured the Historic Eldora House.  It has been rebuilt as a reminder of a little village that grew in the 1890s and died in the early 1900s.  20121125_15362620121125_154450  Lunch was at JB’s Fish House with fried oysters, fried grouper sandwiches, and a scallop basket.  All were wonderful.

One last picture.  It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Forbes’ house.  20121125_180236

Now it is cocktails and blog, and neither of us is hungry for dinner after that big lunch.

Type at you later.
