Thankspigging in Coral Bay

 Ken_and_friends Skinny Legs is closed on Thanksgiving Day but not really.  Every year Ken gives thanks by offering Pigs, Potatoes and Beer!  This Thanksgiving Day was no different as the denizens of Coral Bay, and visiting snowbirds, celebrated their traditional way Thankspigging.

There was a rumor that the Thankspigging tradition may not be eternal.  Folks attending the 9th event were asked to submit recipes for a cookbook to be made available at next year's feast which, the 10th, possibly, could be the last one.

Tropical Focus Photography is the collaboration of husband/wife team Bob and Karin Schlesinger. Their long-standing love affair with the islands and decades together as a working couple give them a synergy and island perspectives that others just dream of. Their style is uniquely St. John – relaxed and natural, with a touch of fun and quality results every time.
