Thanksgiving Dinner

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving with a great turkey dinner, provided and expertly cooked for us, by Rob, this weeks volunteer. It was certainly quiet, as we are without Stacey and Jeff this week, however, we were joined by Jim from State Park who also contributed an excellent corn dish. After gorging on turkey we then demolished a pumpkin pie before relaxing to a movie. And the best part is we still have lots of left overs!

This week has certainly been quiet, with only four of us up here, and no one calling from the office. The weather has also been very foggy so we’ve only had one or two hikers around. No doubt this will change this weekend since high pressure will be building in – you never know we might even see some sun.
