Mayport, FL













We had a quiet Thanksgiving in the motorhome, with the convection oven working its magic on the turkey, and Anneke working the magic with the rest of the meal. Halley was perhaps the one most interested in the whole process and apparently understood that she would somehow enjoy at least some of the results of this labor. It was an excellent meal.

The rest of the day was spent lounging around waiting for the Cowboys/Saints game. The truth is we have little interest in football games. I know some will find this shocking, but there it is. The only reason we endured the nearly four hours of coverage was that Fox Sports was broadcasting from the base our daughter is deployed to in the Middle East. Long story short we did not see her in the total of 2 minutes or less that they actually broadcast from there.

Yesterday was also spent hanging around the campground watching the river traffic and enjoying the beach. Not exciting, but we always enjoy being near the waterfront.

It is now time to start planning our next stop.

Well, for what it's worth, I have zero interest in football games as well. Glad to know there are others out there besides myself with similiar dislikes. Of course with me, I don't really like any kinds of sports. Say, did I mention I live on a different planet:))

Did not realize you guys had a daughter who is deployed--we will put her in our thoughts! Our USAF granddaughter is starting to relax in Italy and has decided it is an OK place to be, DUH!

I'm sorry you didn't get to see your daughter after suffering through the football game! How much longer will she be in the middle east?

I love all the military campgrounds you've been staying at. We're wanting to find some private cg's with the same views of the inlets. We love to watch ships coming and going.

Great picture of the Tahoma. Spent some time on her sister ship, Harriet Lane. Brought back some memories, thanks!
