Happy Thanksgiving!

We are in Honduras and are truly blessed!

When we departed from the USA back in September, we didn't have enough time after Hurricane Ivan to finish all the shopping runs. We sailed after just a few days back on the ship. Soooo... we knew that the Thanksgiving meal was going to be a challenge!

We truly had an international crew at our table for Thanksgiving dinner. Going around the table clockwise is Jan Kronester (age 4) from Germany, Jan Haukaas (standing) from Norway, Hyo Ryong Kim from Korea, Luci James from England, Rob and Denise from the USA!

We had a wonderful dinner, including a real turkey and pumpkin pies! We even had some whipped cream! It was delicious. The whole frozen turkey was purchased in a market about 3 hours from the ship in La Ceiba. As new crew joined the ship, they brought with them cans of we were able to enjoy pumpkin pie! Some of them brought pecans, too, for pecan pie! Yum, yum! The whipping cream was purchased at a local grocery and it was so good! God is so faithful!
