Wishing everyone a great time tonight - looking forward to meeting June and Vicky when they come to the Ventura area.
I posted some pics (under the SB Zoo/Dinner title) of the new youngsters at the SB Zoo - just to give you a preview.

Sorry ya'll had to wait so long to see any pictures from last night. Since there were so many cameras getting a group shot last night, I didn't have them take one with my camera, but I did get a few pictures from dinner. I can't believe I didn't get a single shot of Katie, Mina or Dave! I did get one of Joanie, but it wasn't very good, so I opted not to show it.

:clk: OK, peeps ... here is some more proof positive that Cruzers have a ball when they gather together! The first two are self-explanatory .... the traditional Sacred Door pictures since it was Vicky's first time!

Beanie Eagle wasn't really buying this ... not exactly what he was anticipating in the way of a 'beverage' but I put him on the wagon until the Egg Roll!

This is a toast :clink: promised to Leigh and Chris who as recent ex-locals were not able to join us as they have in the past... Leigh recently retired and they have relocated to an island in British Columbia from where she is lurking (Hi, Leigh! :}^ ) and watching the nests.

A few more to follow ....

:clk: 'Group shots' to follow starting with Katie and Wes (shot through and from behind June and Vicky) It's great that the Harbor House 'indulges' us (they don't take reservations) by 'holding' the 'stage area' for us if I give them a heads up to stop seating folks there a couple of hours before our arrival. It permits a bit of 'semi'-privacy so we can mingle if we wish but we are limited in space to stand back to effectively take 'group' photos... I've tried using a 'wide-angle' lens in the past but not so flattering :D

Taken from behind Margie, Roger was laughing so hard he was wiping tears away ... at what you ask? At Scott/Manu doing the 'banking' after the bill was delivered and realizing that he needed an advanced degree in economics for this job!

Th, th, that's all Folks! (Until the next time.) :}^

Hope you can join the next Cruzer Gathering as we re-group May 15 to celebrate the 2010 Hatching Season at the Fourth Annual EggRoll and welcome distant Cruzers from the East Coast .... Deb/Harpo, Gary/EagleScout, Carole/NatureGal, Jeanne/jeannec, Elaine/ElaineRuth! Please, if you haven't already, check out the Egg Roll Event page right here in the Events thread and let me know you are coming!
