Thanksgiving on Salt Spring Island
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)
