Thanksgiving Sushi

Edz and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving together as a married couple at Aqua Resort Club. They had a brunch buffett with all the trimmings one would expect at Thanksgiving.  And a band!  You can't tell from this photo, but they are singing Y.M.C.A.

You know, like sushi.  But that's not all I had.  They also had turkey, stuffing, and instant mashed potatoes.  Really, instant mashed potatoes?  That was pretty lame.  The smoked ham more than made up for it though.

For someone her size, Edz can really pack the food away. She was putting pressure on me to get up with her to get more food.

I was quite happy with my coffee. I've become spoiled in the last two years with convenient access to decent coffee. None of the restaurants in Saipan serve decent coffee.

If all goes according to plan we'll be spending next Thanksgiving somewhere in the continental United States, most likely somewhere around Washington, DC.

And since a brunch buffet doesn't fill you up for the day, around dinner time we went out for steaks at Country House. It's not saying much, but I think Country House has the best steaks on Saipan. At the very least, when you order a steak, you at least get what you ordered. The other steak house around the corner runs out of...never mind. I'm over it.

And that was Thanksgiving 2011. Will it be my last one on Saipan for a while? Never say never, I guess.

Even though this post is older, congratulations on your 1 year anniversary! My wife and I are headed towards our third in July. Your Shark blog was great, but for a newb to Saipan there was so much information it was hard to process. I love the reef here I hope such efforts continue!

I love Saipan! They have great beaches there. I think it would be awesome to have a residential property there, too. Nice blog, by the way.

Best,
