How we spent our Christmas

Colin and I no longer exchange gifts, so it was fun to spoil the boys a bit. Carmeh was more interested in the parcel and the paper.

Our neighbors presented us with a lovely fruit platter for a Christmas morning snack. After that the four of us along with the girls walked down the beach to check out where Kevin and Ruth were boondocking. A nice area but not for us. Being here for so long we need a more permanent set up.

Colin called his Mom and played for her 🙂 I eventually got to speak to Dad later in the evening. I have to wait until someone is there with a cell phone. No point in his having a phone as he won't hear it ring.

Soon we were preparing for our Christmas dinner.

Juan taught Ruth how to make a fancy napkin that looks like a Christmas tree.

It would look better with a linen napkin plus you can add a tiny bow made on a fork to the top. Very creative and festive.

There was more food than we could eat as we all brought several items to share including turkey, ham and smoked salmon.

A great meal with friends.

We didn't have time for a before dinner photo as everyone was hungry. That is Marjorie and Bob at the top left.

We had some dancing, some music, some singing and even more dancing. Our neighbors joined us after their Christmas dinner at RV2 adding to the merriment.

Another wonderful sunset...the rest of us finally called it a night about 11AM. Another Isla Christmas to remember.
