Nov 24th- Thanksgiving in Antarctica
Today was our day to celebrate Thanksgiving. I woke up around 8:00am and went to my favorite place for writing journals-- The Coffee House. This place is wonderful. I spend most nights there because I can plug my computer in, write my journals and go online. The Coffee House is a great place for people to get together and chat, drink coffee, read or play board games. Everyone knows me now as the woman with the computer.
We had our Thanksgiving dinner at 4:30pm. Our whole team sat together and had a good time. I was very sad during the meal however. I really miss my husband Scott. It really hit home as we sat down to dinner. I just wished that I could have been with him for Thanksgiving. I know that I will see him in a few weeks, but I was still very sad.
After the meal I decided to go for a walk. I wound up hiking up Observation Hill again. I sat for a while on a rock. It felt good to be up there looking out over the sea ice. It was a warm evening, about 34 degrees F. The Transantarctic Mountains were standing proud in the distance. What a beautiful place I'm in! I wish Scott could see it.
