Our Christmas party this past Monday, the 23rd

We spent most of the 22nd inside cooking, preparing for our posada the next day. This was the only photo I took on the 22nd.

Our party was for all those camped here at RV1.  It was a pot luck but as the host I felt the need to prepare at least four main food items plus I added a few things like appetizers and truffles from Belgium after dinner.

Folks began to arrive shortly after 4PM.

Laura moved about a good deal socializing and I have her in number of my photos. I was tired and sadly did not make a very good effort to take photos.

A quick sunset shot.

Alan did a much better job that I did.  We were very fortunate that there was only one insect spotted all evening.  A true Christmas miracle.

Fortunately Alan took a shot of people lining up for dinner.  It was very festive and Colin had Christmas music playing outside in the background.  Sorry no photos of all the yummy food.  We even had ham and scalloped potatoes!

Shortly after dinner we managed to do some respectable Christmas carolling.

Santa ( in his snazzy new suit jacket ) along with Rudolph made an appearance.  Here Santa is dumping what he thought was his bag of toys onto the ground. Turns out it was his laundry! He brought the wrong bag.

Alan got this shot of Ferne coming to Santa’s rescue with the correct bag of goodies.  Each person was given some festive head gear.

Santa very generously handed everyone a kazoo and some candies.  The group was really into Christmas kazoo music.  We are ready to start a band.

It appears that a great time was had by all.

Santa even brought  along a 3 litre bottle of  Toscana Rosso from Italy.

The wine was very good and fun addition to the party.  Thanks for pouring the wine Alan. Dave meanwhile had already begun sharing tequila shots from his private collection.

As some folks drifted away others sat around our fire pit and Colin played for a while.  A lovely way to end the evening.

Now that was a party.  No idea what time it was when everyone had left but we just came in and went to bed and cleaned up the next day.

    Thank you Colin and Contessa for hosting the evening. It was a lot of fun, laughter and good food. Listening to Colin play, with the backdrop of the sound of the waves on the shore was a memorable way to wind up a great evening. Thanks again for all your hard work.
    Alan and Laura

      I made it to the party by using a 10% lidocaine solution to my sore parts. It eneablebeld em to do what I had to do. We had invested too much into the party to cancel it.
