Not your ordinary Thanksgiving...


Two of the many dolphins we saw!!

Can you believe the size of those scallops?

Wet suits are just not that cute!

Well, unless your Brad....
Cards...

Bradeezy and Blakedeezy...
Brad and I were invited last minute to join some of our friends on a boat trip to the Channel Islands. Our freinds JT and Amber have a family that are real adventure seekers. They do so many fun trips like this. Anyway, they had some extra spots so invited us to join!
It was amazing!!! We drove down to Santa Barbara Wed night and boarded the boat.

There were about 30 of us on board an 80 foot boat. There were 6 crew members. 4 guys and 2 galley girls who were two of the best cooks ever! They made a full Thanksgiving dinner on the boat! It was awesome. Most of the people on the boat were Scuba certified so they were able to catch some amazing fresh seafood like Lobsters, munk fish, bass and scallops. Brad and I only snorkled but were still able to get fresh mussels and swim with the seals. I took naps, read my books and played cards the rest of the time!

On our trip back to land we saw abou 150 dolphins!! It was so neat. If anyone is ever interested in doing a trip like this let me know. They Charter the boat every Thanskgiving and are usually looking for addt'l people to join in the fun!! More pics to come!

That sounds amazing!! How fun! I've never been on a cruise or an adventure like that. Sounds like a great weekend. If we're around, I would definitely be interested next year.
