We had a great Thanksgiving weekend, our first at Sweet Bottom (the nickname of our beach cottage.) Eric's sister, Jen, flew down from Maryland and his father, Rick, came over from St. Thomas on Thursday to start the cooking and festivities while Eric was working on a day charter to Virgin Gorda. We put the turkey in the oven and walked down to Francis Beach for a refreshing swim. Dinner was amazing, we're almost out of turkey.
The next day we hiked to Leinster Bay and snorkeled around Waterlemon Cay and relaxed around the house. On Saturday we all took the ferry over to St. Thomas to spend the night at Eric's family home on Mountain Top. Rick recently removed the living room furniture and put a ping pong table in and we barbecued salmon and veggies, had cocktails and played ping pong. After an evening of dining and playing we settled into the hot tub on the porch with the most amazing views of St. John and the British Virgin Islands. I truly had such a great turkey day weekend spending it with Eric's family, they made me feel right at home.
