Thanksgiving Whirlwind

Monday, November 28, 2011

To avoid any sort of travel backups, we left Atlanta on the first flight out at 7:15am for White Plains on Wednesday morning. Kudos to Delta for getting us in 25 minutes early at 9:05am! Before heading directly home, we made a couple of stops along the way....  First, satisfying our caffeine fix at our favorite Port Coffeehouse. Next, a spot I've been wanting to try since they opened a few months back, Cinch, a husband & wife owned specialty prepared foods market (see photos below), where I picked up a super delicious container of Turkey Chili. Followed by a last minute run for Thanksgiving provisions at the brand new Whole Foods, and finally a superb lunch at the charming farm to table tavern, Artisan.

Thanksgiving morning holds a tradition in our town known as the Turkey Trot, a 5 mile run & 2.7 mile walk around the extremely picturesque village of Southport, sponsored by The Pequot Running Club. Our family had half runners and half walkers participating this year. The sunny but brisk morning was perfect to kick off the festive day!

Finished -- Now We Don't Feel Guilty When Eating Our Thanksgiving Feast!

We returned home on Friday, which always seems to be a quieter day to travel, and again, thanks to Delta we arrived a half hour early. The weekend had us busy with leaf pickup duty and taking down my outside Thanksgiving decor -- Cornstalks & an assortment of Pumpkins -- in preparation for Christmas holiday decorating.
