Christmas Day is wonderful in California!

Where are we today ?
         Well here it is Christmas morning and all is well. Lets bring Joy to the world.
         Last night after yesterdays posting. There was Christmas Carol singing meeting at the clubhouse as they walked the turkey to the burial. Which just happened to be on Rob and Pat's site right next to us. So we got to catch this tradition with all the carollers and a few music instruments, as they buried the 4 turkeys and two hams in the 45 gallon drum that had a nice bed of hot coals on the bottom.

throw in the meat wrapped in foils
and wet burlap bags
cover the drum and pile the sand over top
        This morning we up early and Santa had been here, chocolates and peanuts and our good health was here for us this morning. Perfect.
        Then our morning coffees, walkabouts the resort wishing people Merry Christmas, then we made phone calls and video calls (to those who were able on Facetime) to the family that we could reach, parents, children and grands, was a perfect Christmas morning.
         Then 11 am the staff and volunteers returned to uncover the cooked meat for our Christmas dinner at 2 pm today.

         Shortly afternoon John and Barb returned to toast Christmas day with a glass of Champagne, then we headed to the clubhouse for Christmas dinner at 2 o'clock.
Merry Christmas!

the hall is filling up
food is ready to be served
         And I will tell you it was so tasty all homemade, turkey and ham so tasty, real mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, corn , peas, broccoli, artichokes, fresh cranberry with orange, excellent gravy and fresh baked buns.
oh so good
then the deserts, lots of choices,
 I choose cherry cheesecake 
          We chatted for a while them waddled back home. To relax in the sun and read for a while after a perfect Christmas day. Good food, good friends and a sunny warm day.
         Hope you had a good one too, thanks for stopping by for a visit.

  3. I don't think I can even waddle yet and dinner was several hours ago. I bet your hams and turkeys were really good after being cooked in the pit. We had a really nice Christmas. Glad you did also.

    1. The meat from the pit was so moist tender and tasty. We starve for 24 hours should feel better.

  6. Merry Christmas George and Suzie from a couple of followers you've not yet met. Christmas Day here was snowy and cold, but family gatherings brought us the needed warmth right now. :)

  9. It's interesting how that turkey and ham cook while buried in the sand. Those guys obviously have the formula worked out. It sure looked good anyway!

  10. We've participated in pit style pig roasts but that buried drum is kind of unique. The food looked great. To have 'waddled' home is a sign that the food was oh, so, good.
