Butter Indicator: Not Melted
Captain Jim suggested we add a couple more benchmarks to the daily post. The leader for fastest speed, and the Butter Indicator.
It's Thanksgiving and we enjoyed an extraordinary feast on board that must be seen to be believed.
To appreciate, you'll just have to wait until I can post pictures and until then be satisfied with my description.
The roasted turkey breast and drumsticks were perfectly done and accompanied by a corn bread stuffing and butternut squash with leeks and garlic. So good. Deb and Kim are miracle workers in the galley.
Normally, Morpheus is a dry boat (literally and figuratively) on extended passages. Given this is Thanksgiving, Captain Jim authorized a cocktail hour before dinner. It was a good decision.
Thoughts of the Day: What are we thankful for?
- Friends with Boats
- Otto the Autopilot makes standing watch a breeze.
- Our spouses who tolerate us going on these adventures while tending to the home fires..
- The boat is NOT sinking
- No Trump Tweets
We hope everyone at home enjoyed their Thanksgiving as much as we did on board. - mw
