I have two turkeys for the event. That should be enough with the amount of people registered as of now. I also picked up the peanut oil to fry them in.

Turkey Day Food


Turkey Day weather forecast is looking good! I'll be cooking on the beach as usual: sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and apple cobbler. I'll be bringing my one table for the food. If anyone else can bring another folding table or two that would be great.

Looks like we will have wind all week but it will be coming out of the north , northeast so will be side shore. Weather is gonna be a little cool. I have a folding table I can bring.


Susan, I will let you take care of the turkey. I will do the usual BBQ/Grill food.

Where were you guys Sunday? I was the only one there with the exception of two kitesurfers who haven't heard of the event yet. I told them to check it out on Thanksgiving. I went to East Beach at 9:00 AM expecting a crowd, but there were no Dead-Birders to be seen, to my surprise. After some solo kiteboarding, I decided to leave at 1:00.

The rest of you were missing out on some awesome but gusty 30 MPH wind conditions. It was certainly more than enough for my low-aspect 3 meter:

Sorry to miss you, Sier! I must have arrived just after you left and you are correct, there were no kite flyers or power kiters in sight. I flew my new Peter Lynn Viper for a while, and then put up a big delta to keep me company while I ate my catfish dinner. Packed up after dark and, after watching the light show of the Carnival cruise ship head out to sea, made my lonely way home as it began to drizzle a cold depressing rain. Sniff!

Been there done that. If just one other person shows up, particularly with the makings for hot chocolate, it can be a good time! Otherwise... bleah.

Funny (sorta) story. I woke up on East Beach one morning and was about to connect the MiFi to the laptop when I got a pop-up saying networks available. It said Carnival. Looked out the window and sure enough, there she was heading out to sea.

Hoping it gets better by turkey day. Y'all have fun!

Well, I probably should have mentioned that my dad was there with me as well. He tends to play the roles of supervisor and kite-launcher while we are at the beach. We have a zoom lens for the iPhone 4S that was used for the second photo.

We had plan to be down there all weekend but then got a call saturday morning that my mother in law pass away. This put a major pinch in our plans. My wife is a wreck right now. I'm trying to see if I can get her away from the house and come to the beach. If she sees some old friends, it might make her feel better. If I don't make it down there this year, enjoy some turkeys for me and the wife.

I think I am going to drive in to Galveston tomorrow (hump day) instead of today. With the wind forcast for today and tonight I am not sure I can put up the trailer. Looks like Thurs. it will also be warming up into the 50's instead of the 40's today and tomorrow. I hope everyone has a safe trip and see you on the beach.
