Thanksgiving on Salt Spring Island

October 25, 2009

This Thanksgiving was all about indulging in food, drink and friends on Salt Spring Island where I didn’t have to do any of the cooking!  I also didn’t feel the need to try to record Thanksgiving dinner through my lens.  Instead the evening was spent drinking, discussing, eating and laughing.

Our hosts were Danish so naturally we started with a lethal dose of Aquavit, a Danish aperitif with hints of dill and caraway, followed quickly with a good chaser of beer.  My kind of start!  The food was stunning.  Organic, free range Turkey from a farm down the road, gorgeous big creamy potatoes, squash, glazed carrots, stuffing topped with beautiful gravy and more Aquavit.  The aperitif turned digestif.  The night capped off with one of each pies; an apple and pumpkin pie.  A real memorable evening and one that I am truly thankful for.

So below are a collection of  images not from that evening but instead from the days spent roaming around with my ipod plugged into my ears capturing anything that caught my eye.  Oh, and if you’re looking for a place to stay when you go to Salt Spring Island then look no further than here….(a shameless plug! It’s my Mom’s b&b)

    Seeing those pictures on the B&B website, which must be made by you, makes me want to go on a break.

    I’d love to see the world through your eyes.. I just love how you’ve made things from the boots, to the bell to the chair look so lovely. Just gorgeous!

    Hi everybody, it is Thanksgiving Day! I’m enjoying my extra day off, and I am planning to doing something fun that will probably involve a bike ride and seeing something new in Ville Platte I haven’t seen yet.
    You write something new at Thanksgiving?
