Thanksgiving on Daniel Island

As I sit here early in the morning the day after Thanksgiving, I am reflecting on how incredibly lucky we are to live in Charleston and on Daniel Island. We helped a couple buy a home in Daniel Island Park a couple of years ago and they have become good friends. They have a tradition of getting all of their relatives from both sides of the family together each year. This year they had 22 guests covering 4 generations of family. They came from New Jersey, Ohio, Florida, Texas and Spain.They invited us to join them for Thanksgiving at the Daniel Island Club. I loved their stories about their visit.  A group of then ran in the Turkey Trot through historic Charleston enjoying the amazing architecture and sreets where pirates used to roam. A group of men went fishing with guides. One of them caught the biggest red fish I have seen and I fish pretty frequently. It was his first time. I think he thinks all the red fish are that idea he is a superstar fisherman. Others stayed on the island and took walks on the island trails, enjoyed the friendly neighbors and became relaxed southerners for while. Today they are off to do a Charleston Harbor boat tour and will then enjoy the Daniel Island Oyster Roast. Funny too was that none of them even mentioned it was the coldest Thanksgiving in 100 years this year. Charleston just wrapped it's warm charm around them all and they are having a blast. Once of the best Thanksgivings I recall just sharing time with new friends and realizing how blessed we are to live in Charleston and on Daniel Island.
