There have been a few cruiser parties that we've attended. They had the potential to be fun but once again, Andy and I are not the most outgoing folks and we didn't really make any connections with anyone so we drank our free beer and headed back to the boat. Don't get me wrong, there are very nice people out here but we just have trouble with crowds. Not that we can't mingle and make small talk, we do that very well... we just don't enjoy it. I would rather sit down one on one with someone and get to know them than work a room and just gather a bunch of names.

We stocked up on groceries yesterday in the Mega (HUGE grocery store that would rival any Albertson's) and even found some turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner. Not just turkey slices :). We found a turkey breast for me and wings and legs for Andy and Jake so it looks like we'll be able to have somewhat of a traditional meal after all (I was all prepared to have our first fish thanksgiving...the pilgrims ate fish too you know). I even found pecans for pecan pie.
While we miss our families and friends terribly, we're very thankful that we've been able to spend all of this time together. It's definitely brought us closer (literally, I can't even begin to describe the close proximity of two people in our bathroom together). We would like to wish everyone back home a Happy Thanksgiving! We miss you and will be thinking of you!
By the way, I got a good response from my lime tip I posted a few days ago....Here's another one: Wrap your cabbage heads in paper (butcher paper, newspaper, whatever)...they last longer out of the fridge that way.
