Happy Thanksgiving – November 22, 2012

Welcome to our first cruisers’ Thanksgiving! Seagles hosts an annual Thanksgiving dinner for traveling cruisers. The restaurant provides the turkey and the cruisers provide the side dishes, plates, silverware, and drinks. I made mashed butternut squash to add to the table and we brought along our finest Black Box wine.

We set up a kids’ table; Anthyllide (Scott & Kimberly), Serendipity (Matt & Jessica), and Hideaway (Ryan & Tasha; with guests Bill & Grace). We were joined by a local couple whose company we truly enjoyed. We wined and dined all afternoon.

After our bellies were full, and the restaurant was empty, we headed back to the water for a boat tour. First stop, Rode Trip. We found out just how much space we have for cozy entertaining.

Second stop, Serendipity. Matt & Jess got out their arm blade to demonstrate their self-defense plan. Sharks and pirates beware!

Final stop, Hideaway. Here we really let the good times roll.

We had a memorable Thanksgiving with our new friends, and were thankful that our families enjoyed their time together for the holiday.
