Filling the pool up for the traditional group shots.


The theme was the Kraken's Brigade!

Paul Menta drove up from Cayo Hueso. There is an interesting phenomena among longer term Conchs. Ten miles down the US HWY 1 is like driving to another country and may be infrequently undertaken.




Pete Cabrinha, ready with a smile and a handshake.



The kids have been asking for one of these excellent group iSup boards for bath time. Note to self, we're going to need a bigger pool!
