Thanksgiving at the family cottage

Thanksgiving at the cottage. 


There is nothing like spending Thanksgiving at the cottage with family. We flew up on Thursday evening, picked up our rental car and it was an easy hour and a half to our summer cottage. This is our third successive Thanksgiving and of the three the coolest one. Temperatures during the night dipped to around zero. However our new wood-stove provided all of the warmth we needed.  We even managed to get the motor out; a simple task since we kept our old 5hp Mercury after having purchased a new outboard motor this past year.

It was nice to see family. Our daughter joined us as did a sister , brother and their families. As you can see we all gathered around for Thanksgiving dinner and yes, a wonderful turkey complete with stuffing, poteatoes, vegetables and other sundry was prepared for the occasion.
