Christmas in Marathon
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a great day yesterday. The good folks down at the "Dockside Bar and Grill" closed the business for the day and held a great Christmas dinner for the boaters in the harbor. They deep fried a bunch of turkeys, baked some ham and roasted a pig. Each of the 120 or so boaters brought a dish and we all ate entirely too much. Several local musicians provided entertainment.
Here are a few pictures.
I've been told by the Admiral that I absolutely must mention that our little Christmas tree sports an ornament made by Bev's sister Gayle. It is homespun wool that Gayle spun and died herself.
We had phone calls from all of Bev's boys, Mike's son Mike and granddaughter Chandra and Mike's sister Jane. (Bev also got to speak to her not-quite-one-year old granddaughter Kahlenn.)
Happy Birthday Julie!
