Thanksgiving 2018

After Banh-Meetup and Independence Day Resurgence, we'd pretty much spent our entertaining energy for the year and decided to keep Thanksgiving small, just us and Garrett's parents. I got pretty frustrated leading up to it because I thought it'd be nice to scale down the menu a bit, but very few cuts were made. It was fun once Bev and Dennis arrived, though.

I started the day with an excellent walk at Langus. I've been doing the paved trail lately since it's further from the hunters.

Someone had their houseboat tied up in the river! I'd say docked but it wasn't at the dock, just tied to one of the posts in the middle of the water.

I wasn't originally planning on walking much of the island side, but there was a new poster up that had a map, and the map showed a trail along the river on the East side. I've long suspected there was a trail there but the path to get to it is terribly overgrown. My hope was that it had been cleared and that's why the path was on the poster, but I guess it was an old graphic. Or maybe nobody in charge of it realizes it's been overgrown for years.

While I walked, my time lapse camera was running at an industrial property on the road leading to the park.

And it was an excellent day for a hyperlapse of the drive home. I took the waterfront route home for more continuous driving.

Garrett's 2018 tablescape. We seat Bev and Dennis on one side so they can enjoy the view out the window. My vertical garden continues to thrive. We ended up moving everything a couple of times so we could play Skip-Bo, maybe next year we can just play cards at the smaller table.

Garrett couldn't resist picking these up for me.

The dinner. Wish I'd noticed the picture's a little blurry when I took it.

My (first) plate.

Steve stayed downstairs most of the day but Sam was around the whole time.
