Marsh Harbor - HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

We arrived in Marsh Harbor and took a slip at the Jib Room as a Christmas present to ourselves ... water, electricity, cable which means football.  AAAHHH what a nice gift.  Shortly after we docked, we had a special visitor drop by ... Santa Claus and his Sumo Wrestler Elf! 

What a surprise.  So,naturally, we invited Santa and his Sumo Wrestler Elf on board and since we didn't have any cookies made we offered Santa and his helper a cocktail.  So, Santa and his Sumo Wrestler Elf came aboard and shared a few cocktails with us.  It was such a joy getting to know Santa and his slightly overweight helper personally.  Thanks Santa and Sumo Wrestler Elf for sharing the holiday spirit with us.

On Christmas Day, we prepared and gathered our potluck dishes and had a very nice holiday dinner at the Jib Room where the owner's Boo (Linda) and Tom supplied the ham and turkey and the cruisers supplied the side dishes.  Thanks to Boo, Tom, Steve (their son) and the other chefs who help prepare a fabulous Christmas dinner.  Y'all made a wonderful meal.

Jolly Mon

We stuffed our bellies with food and mimosas and then gathered for a quick games of dominoes before continuing the celebration aboard Gypsea Heart.   We had a wonderful holiday celebration with good friends and also made a few new friends though we truly missed our family and friends who couldn't be here to celebrate with us.  We hope you all had a very, very Happy Holiday!!  Until the next time!!
