SO MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR
27 November 2015 | LEVERICK BAY, VIRGIN GORDA
With all major passages and crossings now checked off Moonbeam's list, it was time to celebrate...and what a coinkydink to have Thanksgiving occur this week while we are here in the BVIs. Amazing!
Gary and Kim, Jens and Evelyn and I arrived. Unexpectedly, Donna and Rob who were already here, had a last minute change of plans when their new baby grandson decided to make his entrance a month early, so he could have Thanksgiving as the first big holiday of his life...instead of waiting for Christmas...and off they went to NY to meet the new little rascal.
Lee, from the original Atlantic crossing crew, was still here, awaiting the final leg back to Marco. Our dear friends, Steve and Edie, flew down to help celebrate.
As the number of participants grew, it was obvious we couldn't have the traditional dinner on Moonbeam, so we dined at a local restaurant, complete with dancing to the music of a singer/guitar player who clearly knew his audience....music from the 60's and 70's.
All in all, there was much to be thankful for.
