December 25, 2011.

Happy Birthday Ashlee & Jesus.

On Saturday morning I was awakened by the sound of Santa and one of his elves arriving by dinghy. But then I realized that Santa doesn't have a dink and it was only the Savages dropping by EARLY to drop off a gift bag including a very special lobster hat which I will probably never take off.
On Sunday the official Georgetown Christmas dinner celebration was a huge meal planned for noon. Tables were set up for 5, 6 or 7 boats per table. With each table being responsible for the food at their own table. This seemed like a pretty good plan as there was no huge “chow line” for people to wait in. Each table was left to their own devices as to what the menu included and who was responsible for what. It sounded like fun but we skipped it.

We had Christmas dinner with Fine Lion 2 years ago and since they're here as well we decided to get together and do it again. Along with the crews of Sapphire and Alibi II we all descended on the good ship Fine Lion for the afternoon. Everybody brought a portion of the meal and once again it was a meal to remember. There was ham, beef tenderloin, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, Caesar salad, hot rolls, stuffing and apple crisp for dessert.
We were there for hours and we spent the entire time either eating or laughing.

I hope everyone got to spend their holiday eating good food with people they enjoy.
