THANKS TO EVERYONE
WHO JOINED US!!!
Thanksgiving in OZ with Canadians. In the warming weather we enjoyed a lovely feast of turkey, mashed sweet potato, rosti, beetroot salad, sweet potato pie, apple and pumpkin pie, just to name a few of the goodies that were consumed. We ate and ate and ate!! The music with the East Coast musicians was so heart warming and really brought home the Canadian spirit.
Mario St Marie, the Consul General of Canada, gave a lovely heart felt speech. His words on giving thanks for the food and for living in two great countries made it a real Thanksgiving. A wonderful time was had by all. We are indeed a very lucky group.
