20-22 Nov 2007
Tuesday we moved south to the Jacksonville, FL area. We are camped at the mouth of the St John’s River on the Mayport Naval Station. It has a great view of the river and Atlantic Ocean. It has also brought back fond memories of naval tradition as you hear the bugle calls for morning and evening colors and the playing of the national anthem.
We had let our friends Ted and Sharon Polgar know that we were going to be in the area and they very kindly invited us to Thanksgiving dinner in their home in St. Augustine. It was a great time and great meal. Since Ted is also retired Coast Guard and we served together some (I.E. many) years ago in Toledo, it was also an opportunity to remember the good old days. They also had invited another couple from Maine and we all had a fun and lively conversation during the course of the meal.
It was truly a time to be thankful for all the good things in our lives.
Oh, yes, and of course I ate too much of the great food!
