Christmas: Celebrating Christmas here was different, they celebrate it on Christmas Eve. They open their front doors, build a small fire in front of their houses and eat outside. Lot's of food, drinking, loud music, and of course the fireworks! For our Christmas Eve we went to our friend Kerry's house, everyone brought something, we had 3 different soups, Billy made his awesome New England Clam Chowder. On Christmas day when we drove into town it was business like usual, lot's of stores were open. I think it was the first time in our married life that we went to a restaurant for Christmas dinner, just easier and cheaper, turkeys here are expensive. After dinner we went to a friends open house, and ate some more!!!! I am glad the holidays are over. For New years eve, there was a party here, pot luck dinner, the food was great, even better we didn't have to drive home. We came home early and watched the New Year ring in from NY, which in our case was at 11:00 our time, so I went to bed early, I am an old fart! LOL
The following pictures were taken around town. This guy is wating for his owner, as you can see the lake level is still high.
We are new at building fires, but I think we got the hang of it now. I love them, so pretty!
Thought this was a beautiful flower pot
You can walk into town either by going down the streets, or taking the malacon, I love walking the malacon, so much to see, it is so pretty. You can't stay in a bad mood when you have all this beauty around you.
