Santa and Friends

Quite a day. We met our friends, Lois and Klea, at the local Farmers Market in the morning. We all made some purchases. I bought some pickled okra and some fig preserves and some ginger cookies as well as tomatoes and cukes. They also had available oranges, kumquats, strawberries and shelled pecans and a variety of fresh greens.

Santa was due to arrive at Flora-Bama Oyster Bar & Grill right on the Florida/Alabama line. We went early to get a good parking spot and avoid the traffic.

A good sized crowd eventually gathered and was anxiously awaiting Santa’s plane. He was to parachute onto the beach at noon.

Santa Arrives on the Gulf Shore

The parents and children followed Santa inside but we did not stay. We said goodbye for now to Lois and Klea and went home. Later, Bernie and I drove out to Wales West RV Park & Light Railway. Our friends, Bob and Bobbi, are workcamping there. Besides being a nice RV park it is a family attraction light rail, all decorated up for Christmas. There is also a petting zoo, hay ride, pony rides, and more. Bob had train tickets for us and we boarded the Arctic Express and rode the rails around the RV park and through the woods past a bazillion lighted displays to the North Pole.

Bob and Bobbi were hard at work. Bob was selling apple cider and Bobbi is Mrs. Claus!

And then we went home and watched Mary Poppins on TV. Fun day.
