There are always opportunities for Sundowners, BBQ's (or Braai as it is called in South Africa), a before or after (or both) glass of wine, a helping hand, etc. In Richards Bay, we all participated in the Zululand Yacht Club Braais and had our own for Thanksgiving. Of course, the three American boats led the charge on that one!

I did squash and mashed potatoes and gravy. Mary Beth and Mike from Paradise Found came with salads and vegetables. They don't seem to have canned pumpkin in any of the countries we have visited!
Luckily, I was able to find a tiny little pumpkin pie (SA style) so we cut it into one inch squares so everyone could have a taste. Claudine on Wishanger II made a wonderful apple pie!
Our Thanksgiving buffet! Dining on picnic tables under the stars!
It was an enlightening and moving experience with an international twist. The Europeans seemed to enjoy tasting our traditional Thanksgiving foods. We should have made more of everything! There were no leftovers here.
