thanksgiving delayed

The last of the snow birds are trickling down past mile marker "0" on the ICW these days.  Warmer than usual with clear skies, it must be a wonderful time to sail south for Florida, the Bahamas or wherever.  

From the bridge this afternoon I could see there are a couple of boats anchored for the evening in Craford Bay.  I wonder if they will stay moored to celebrate the holiday.  Maybe I will sail by them in the morning and wish them a Happy Thanksgiving.  For a variety of reasons - travel, distance and work - Thanksgiving for us will be Saturday afternoon.  In the meantime the sailing forecast can only be described as perfect for this time of year - mid-60s, clear skies and 8 to 10 mph of wind.

For those who have a better schedule than I, Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the day.  And I'll raise a toast to you on Saturday.

Happy Thanksgiving! We will be thankful for a sail too, we've been eyeing the weather reports all week.
