Gobble, Gobble, Ahoy!

I know this is late but I need to post something new.

We had an interesting Thanksgiving this year. Sean had duty on board ship (of course!!) and so my mom came out to make sure I wouldn't be alone. Fortunately, we had permission to board the ship at the docks and had a lovely turkey dinner with the sailors. It was buffet style and we had cafeteria trays but I was determined to have a festive time. I packed up a tablecloth, cloth napkins, napkin rings, and a centerpiece. I arranged it as best as I could, considering we had a booth to sit in. It was great. We had turkey, stuffing, veggies, green salad, sweet potato casserole, shrimp cocktail, and lots of pie and cheesecake. After we ate, we worked off the pie calories with a tour of the ship. Then it was time to leave because Sean had to get back to work. It wasn't the fanciest of Thanksgivings, but it was interesting and memorable.
