Christmas day sail!

Waking to the sounds of Doug preparing for a Turkey bake on Calliste, ending the day with a nice little sail on Eleanor, enjoying a Turkey wing while sailing around the estuary… surely a most memorable one for me.

Our 1st Buttonball Turks

We always like a Norbest Turkey whenever we get one.. but this year, we were late and the only remaining ones on 23rd were Butterballs. Well, time to try a different brand or else its no Turks right.. It cost a little more and is bigger than our usual.. we hope it turn out well.

Beautiful weather for working out in the cockpit.

Thats me doing my usual contribution to a Turks bake of preparing water chestnuts and chopping onions, I am off for a day of games… 🙂

Haha.. back on my FB games.. hooray for wifi.. when it works.

Well… I was also the carols “DJay”, searching and finding Celtic Woman Christmas songs thru U-tube.. I always like classical/musical stage and costumes… Think I am going to buy that DVD..

Doug had to build a tent because the old top wouldnt totally enclose Turks.

1100hrs, Turks was ready for the oven. Seems to be much bigger than we thought, only inches between the oven top and Turks. .. oh wow! Think about how much meat we’ll have… YUM!

Is that a gluttony look!?

Seems to me, I can always get a funny pic of Doug when hes handling Turks… recall the T-giving one? 

Turks taking up all the room in the oven..

Then, all we could do is wait 4hrs… hungry hungry hungry… snack snack snack.. In the meantime, I got Eleanor rigged and ready to go.

Santas' on board! Lucky me, I got a wing.. 😉

1600hrs, Eleanor loaded with our special Christmas meal and drinks, caught a puff and off we go.

Ahh... sailing and feasting..

Those bungalow dwellers watched us sail by and waving with drums and wings in our fingers… what must they think of us…! Damned those Decadent sailors…? Hee hee hee..
