Yes, Thanksgiving with my family was lovely. It was fun to see everyone and feast on turkey and stuffing. You can see a few family photos here.
On Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, Larry and I went on a field trip. We decided to head down to the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro. First stop was the USS Iowa. Wow! What a ship! It's huge. Luckily, the fog had lifted and it was a beautiful, sunny day on the water. We had an underwhelming lunch at one of the restaurants at Ports O' Call, then headed down Harbor Blvd. to check out Crafted At The Port.
Crafted is in an old warehouse. It's a gigantic space that has been spiffed up to include all types of art and craft booths.
My friend, Rain was there at her jewelry booth, Honey & Ollie. I picked up some lovely earrings on sale and then we toured the rest of the booths. Channel 4 News was there too. Here's the story they ran on the 5:00 pm News that evening.
After leaving San Pedro, we headed toward Torrance. I've been wanting to visit the King's Hawaiian Bread Bakery and Restaurant ever since I read about it on Allee Willis' blog. The restaurant and bakery are housed in an old Torrance restaurant that used to be Ichabod Crane's Tarry Town Tavern, hence the storybook style architecture.

We'd already eaten lunch, but we toured the dining area. It's beautiful. I'd definitely come back for a meal.
I picked up a loaf of King's Hawaiian Rainbow Bread. It's gorgeous and tastes just like egg bread.

The South Bay was a perfect place for a mini-field trip post-Thanksgiving!
