|Mmmm... dinner. After three years of vegetarianism, I began eating seafood again in August. I also allowed myself a Thanksgiving turkey exception. :-) It was all very tasty!|
|Larry thoroughly enjoyed his meal.|

Now that it's warmed up quite a bit here, the skuas have arrived. What is a skua, you ask? It's a species of scavenger bird that feeds on the placenta of seals who have given birth. They also like to attack people who walk out of the galley with food in their hands. I saw my first skua attack yesterday! Usually, they swoop down from behind on an unsuspecting victim to startle them into dropping their food. Once that happens, the skua leaves the person alone and eats the food on the ground. They are persistent birds and are not afraid of people, which is why I was able to get a couple of close-up shots of a skua watching and waiting outside the galley.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! More adventures to come!
