Thanksgiving Day, 2010

David and the boys took the dinghy to the pier and walked two blocks across Anna Maria Island to the beach on the Gulf of Mexico.  On their trek back they picked up sandwiches and grouper bites to snack on during our crossing of Sarasota Bay.  Not your traditional Thanksgiving lunch, but a great starter to a fine day of Florida weather.

At 1430 hrs we were underway for a short cruise south to Roberts Bay, on the east coast of Siesta Key.  This anchorage is well protected and much quieter than the popular one at Cortez.

Thanksgiving dinner consisted of pan-fried turkey breast from an Arkansas wild turkey (a Marion County specialty) harvested and frozen in the spring turkey hunt and gingerly carried on dry ice to the Arkansas Traveler.  Traditional dressing and pumpkin pie accompanied the turkey.  A bit of spinach salad added color and the crew was happy.

A galley is a wonderful place.

Fishing is a great way to wait for dinner.
