Happy Thanksgiving From the Virgin Islands!

What is it like to have Thanksgiving in the Virgin Islands?

It is always fun to watch the news with all the Winter storms that effect the travel for this big holiday. More fun to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with everyone all bundled up as I am sweating getting the turkey stuffed!

Thanksgiving here is all the same, except for the warm weather. I got a 21 pound Butterball turkey for $1.79 a pound and all the fixings!

This year I am thankful to have my father down to the islands! I think it may be 35 years since the last time we have been together for Thanksgiving!

To start the week off, I took him fishing for Wahoo, but all we caught was this from the cooler.

Followed by dinner at the Yacht Club

A trip to Jost Van Dyke and Soggy Dollar Bar with a friend who had some of his friends here.

Thanksgiving breakfast of a omelette. 

Turkey is now in the oven and we have our dear friend Adam coming over from St Johns. 

The rest of the weekend consists of for Black Friday, the dogs first day on the new boat as Chukar has succesfully completed his heartworm treatment! Saturday will be our first trip to the Baths on Virgin Gorda and Sunday we will have to go to a sports bar since my father is a dumb Patriots fan and that dumb team is on at the same time as our terrible Jets. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! We are thankful that we get to live in Paradise!
