Jim (Hobo II) and I were invited to Flagler Beach to have Thanksgiving with Bill of the Maritime Mobile Service Net. Jim has some medical problems as a result of his service in the Gulf War so the dinner was prepared by two of his nurses. It was terrific as was the company.
Thanksgiving is a special time for cruisers. In various locations they gather together to celebrate. Last Thanksgiving I spent in St. Mary's GA with 130 other cruising sailboats. Green Cove Springs Marina (where we are currently working on the boats) had a Thanksgiving celebration of staff and slip holders that we were also invited to join. I think it makes it particularly special when a group of people that you don't know well get together to give thanks for living in the United States.
