Thanksgiving dinner at the Elks Lodge

"M'am, you know this blinking pink flamingo pen you are asking us to use is not regulation, correct?"

"I'll take one of these...and one of those..."

Slim pickings...

In fact, it's pretty much skin and bones at this point.

Hamming it up...

And, oh, that pie...

The back deck of the Elks Lodge overlooks Little Sabine Bay and the marina. It's a beautiful spot to relax.

It was a bit nippy with a north wind coming over the water, but the sun was gorgeous as it sparkled on the water.

Thought he could elude me, but I saw that sly hoodie action.

Writing out their names and e-mail addresses so that I can send them a link to photos later.

Gulf Breeze elementary students worked very hard to make these adorable Thanksgiving decorations for the tables. They wanted to do their part for our marines today. Great job!

Everyone involved tried to make sure our military guests knew how much we appreciate them.

Everyone was stuffed, but go-boxes were available to make sure these young men and women got plenty to eat today.

Relaxing and watching a little football before time to head out.

The Elks Lodge did an excellent job, serving turkey with all the trimming for this group of young marines.

The back story on this photo is how the guy standing thought he was going to avoid my camera. NOT!

If we don't look, will she go away?

I had a great time meeting these young marines and wish them all the best. They were outgoing and fun to be around.

One last pass....

Departure time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
