Where are we today ?
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.

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.
