    Well it certainly looks like the vacation will be a topic of conversation at the Thanksgiving dinner table this year!

    all businesses (except for essential and resorts) are closed.
    shelter in place 6 p to 6 am

    beaches...........deserted. a few stragglers here and there.

    current weather..........barely a breeze and constant rain, not a shower but a real rain even.
    no thunder yet.

    roads passable.

    all casinos closed. OMG

    I made coffee (god forbid we are without tomorrow morning if there is a power outage). that coffee is now in the tea kettle to be heated tomorrow morning!!
    BRILLIANT right?

    we rode up to the Ritz and had a drink and met Jay and Tracy and CJ
    Lovely charming and kind people. I cannot say enough.
    Although I might add Jay is handsome and Tracey very pretty.

    I took a roasted turkey breast brought from home all sliced..........from the freezer, it is thawing and Becca bought a couple of jars of gravy.
    Hot turkey sandwiches tonight for dinner with salad.

    All places that have lounges and grills and stuff in their areas are all cleared out and stuff packed away.

    But, and these are my thoughts....................this is a rain, not a wind event.

    The planes from the USA and England are arriving and leaving.

    Reminder ALL business closed including Casinos and Dunkin and Starbucks


    I guess it is nap time.
    THINK.. is it Thoughtful? Helpful? Inspirational? Necessary? Kind? sidtm
