Happy Thanksgiving

Current Location: Playa Del Rio RV Resort, Perdido Key, Florida

Yesterday, we didn’t do much around the trailer, as we were waiting for our son, David, to arrive. He drove down from Wetumpka to spend the night with us so he could be with us on Thanksgiving day. He got to the park around 1:00 PM and we headed out in the truck to eat a late lunch at Lambert’s Cafe (home of the “throwed rolls” – the rolls are thrown across the room to you when they come out).

After lunch, we headed back to the trailer with a pile of leftovers (they feed you well at Lambert’s) and chilled the rest of the evening.

This morning, we slept in a little late and took it easy. Malcolm had unhooked the water hose yesterday since we were expecting freezing temperatures last night. He hooked it back up this morning before he took his shower. We also partook of a couple traditional Talley holiday items – cinnamon rolls and the Macy’s parade.

Later this morning, we cooked up our dishes to take to the pitch-in Thanksgiving dinner at the RV park. There were a lot of dishes and desserts brought in. The park owners supplied the meat. There was a ton of food and we had a lot left over, as did many others.

After dinner (at 1 PM), most everyone stayed around to visit and chat. We took advantage of the mild weather (still a little chilly) to take our annual Christmas photo. We had plenty of volunteers to choose from to snap the picture for us.

The park has a really nice area next to the Intracoastal Waterway. There are chairs, a fire pit, hammocks, docks, etc. This is a really nice little park.

After seeing David off, we headed back down to the patio and watched football games and chatted with the owners and several other guests. The sunset was beautiful over the water.



We all chatted, joked and laughed until around 7:30 when we decided to head back to the trailer and relax. All in all, it was a great Thanksgiving. We highly recommend this park if you ever want to visit the Gulf Coast.
