Happy Thanksgiving everybody

To all of our American friends...
Please stay safe and have a really good Thanksgiving day.

We're home at Rocky Point. Today, we travel to Arkansas to enjoy our day with mother Taylor.
Fried Turkey and all the fixins'. Should be good.
Tomorrow we go back to Pickwick to stay with friends, Jim and Sandy. Will be good to see them after being gone for so long.

Missing Stuart, Fl

One of neighbors from Pickwick.
"Miss Pat" has never been to Pickwick but her owners have a home just down the street from our old lake house. She's a beauty.

Before leaving, our friends, Will and Tara, stopped by before we all took the little boat into downtown Stuart for dinner at the Oyster House.

Sisterships...  62 Nordhavns

Before dinner, we took the Albury over to the Nordhavn commissioning dock to check out these two boats.

Of course, we couldn't leave without some time spent with Travers. His boss will probably have him in the Bahamas before we go back to the boat. So it was a, " see ya later", dinner at Lola's. Fun night.

We are really missing our peeps from the marina. We will probably be going back -soon- just to check on things... hmmmm.

Great story with a happy ending.

And they are friends at our favorite little restaurant in Stuart.

Lisa and Stephanie, our favorite waiters when crew Istaboa eat at the Pelican.
Who knew they would turn out to be Heros.

Bravo! Well done.

Great bunch of folks at the Pelican. Here's another good example of their kindness.

Because someone complained about Radar sitting at the table in a chair; Victoria, the owner, designed  and designated a chair especially for Radar then told the complaining patron, "if that doesn't satisfy you then go somewhere else". 

We're in Memphis now and missing all our friends in Stuart very much. If we were there, the girls at the Pelican would be getting a huge tip today.

Got spammed!

We've been busy for the last few days preparing for our return to Memphis and didn't notice that we had a few comments on the last posting.
First, I would like to say I am sorry to our friends from Louisville, Ky for not responding to their comment. Hope you guys had a great time in Stuart and we're sorry we missed you.
Next, I would like to express our embarrassment to those who saw a comment about Miley Cyrus.
we're not into Miley Cyrus much at all.
Enough said.
