Your Thanksgiving Could Look Like This If You Lived in Punta Gorda

Monday, November 26th, 2018

While much of the north saw record cold this Thanksgiving, we donned shorts for our local Turkey trot. Every year, this 5k draws hundreds of locals out to support Habitat for Humanity. For the Andreaes, it’s a tradition.

Afterwards, we each go home, clean up, and meet up again at Grandma’s, aka Nancy or the blonde woman in our logo. This year, some of the grandkids and their daddy went kayaking. It would never occur to any of us to be stuck inside on Thanksgiving.

What kid doesn’t love a Thanksgiving Day kayak at Grandma’s?

Like most Floridians, we set up a buffet on the lanai and ate outside. Why not? It was a beautiful day.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, I went downtown for Small Business Saturday. Again, it was 70 degrees, so why not?

How was your Thanksgiving? If you spent it stuck inside or had to throw three layers on to go shovel your way out, you don’t have to live that way. Come to Punta Gorda where Thanksgiving weekend is an outdoor event!
