The rains have stopped and the skies are sunny once again, however the high today only hit 72. I find it strange not spending Thanksgiving Day with cool brisk winds, cloudy skies or even snow. But I’ll take this. We have made some acquaintances here but few friends. A large part of the campers here are from Quebec and don’t speak a language I understand.
With no relatives or close friends about, Robin and I decided the RV was not a place we wanted to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. We drove into Brandon around noon to do some shopping but found a town devoid of much human interaction. We did find that Old Time Pottery was open and we went in for some Christmas decorations. This will be a first for us–to decorate the RV. We found some difficulty in mentally downsizing our choices to fit inside our small abode. After a trip to Walmart for some fishing line, offset hooks, and bullet sinkers, it was time to find a feast.
Cody’s Roadhouse grabbed our mind’s eye and we did enjoy some down-home cooking.
We reminisced about the previous day and our visit back to Sun N’ Fun to visit Susan and Paul Breton before they left to go back to Ontario.
We spent time with them exchanging stories, sipping wine, and talking about future visits. We capped the evening off with a great dinner at Carrabba’s.
We’ll see them again when we head to their home near Sault Ste. Marie sometime next summer. But I’m sure we’ll cross paths again here in Florida during the winter. After our turkey with all the trimmings, Robin and I headed back home to finish watching the football games and just taking it easy, and planning what we need to pack for the cold weather up north for our flight on Saturday.
