Thanksgiving at Peace River

We were invited to our friends home in Wesley Chapel again this year, but decided to stay at Peace River  for Thanksgiving Dinner since it would be just a few more days before we had to go back to the house.

RV'ers are great cooks - and the food prepared for the Thanksgiving Day feast was excellent.   There was no where near the number of people that attended last year - which made the food line much faster, but the way it was managed this was a little bit disappointing.   The park supplied the Turkey and Ham and Gravy - and that was excellent.  But the food tables were set up OUTSIDE.. with a tacky blue swimming pool filled with ice set on top of the table to keep the cold food cold.

 It was a very windy and chilly day - and nothing was done to keep the hot food hot - like the mashed potatoes....and people were asked to bring the food 1/2 hour early.  No one was allowed in the hall to sit until 2:00.  There is no minister in the park - and the park Manager never even joined the group at all. It was the activities director who stopped in the middle of the parking lot and gave a quick blessing - which most of us missed completely!

But it was a day to give thanks ............ and we were thankful to be able to spend the day with good friends.

After dinner we joined John and Shelly over at Nick and Tonyia place.  The guys sat and talked and enjoyed their beverage of choice, while Tonyia and Shelly introduced me to Mexican Train.  Lots of fun..........we'll have to do that again.   All in all it was a good day ...........which ended perfectly with a phone call from our son Dennis.
