This year, Cory thought it would be proper of us to have Thanksgiving on the boat... Knowing that it's impossible to cook a turkey on our little boat, we had to come to a compromise - Thanksgiving first, sailing second. I am not sure how many times sailing will come second for Cory. You can't separate a man from his boat!
Since my family was in from out of town, it was a special treat for them to hang out on the boat and enjoy the sunshine. In Delaware it's getting quite cold this time of year. So, it was nice for them that we got a chance to spend all afternoon out on the water.
One thing I must say is I am very glad we invested in a dodger. Although San Diego is a warm place, the protection that the windshield provides is fantastic this time of year! Also, to round out a near perfect day, we also got a chance to fly the spinnaker...and this time I brought the camera.
Most importantly though, we truly feel very blessed this Thanksgiving for many things. We are blessed with many wonderful things including our families, friends, health, youth, and spirits! Looking into 2007, we are excited about the adventure and challenges on the horizon. For those who are reading this, we wish you peace and many blessings during the holidays.
