Luckily Mr. David's Mobile Sous Chef Service was able to stop by Beluga in the morning and help me prep our turkey. I have an aversion to handling poultry with skin and bones (shudder.....), it creeps me out and I just can't do it. Mr. David came to my rescue and did all the necessary handling. I provided him with the turkey, spices and butter, all he had to do was apply them to the carcass (shudder...) and put the whole thing in the crockpot. In lieu of payment for services rendered I invited him to have dinner with me. He even stepped in to make the gravy when he saw me floundering. What a guy.
This morning we drove a bit north to Ft. Clinch State Park for the weekend. We had a beach campsite reservation there and a dinner reservation at Le Clos, one of our favorite restaurants in Fernandina Beach. It was an easy drive without much traffic, except when passing a shopping center or outlet mall.
We're in site 16, a sandy and sunny place. Not warm, however, not warm. Sigh.
I have to wonder if the entire winter will be cold and windy in Florida. I know, don't feel sorry for me, oh you sitting up there in the frozen, snowy north.
