Think it was a time warp, Greg!
Thanks Shelley. Inspired by the trusty old Kodak Instamatic with the optional flash cubes!
Thanks Rusty. It was great to catch up. About a year ago, I remember a seagull landing on someone when they were half way across to Shelly - must have been missing the company!

Thanks Elizabeth. I hope to have more pics when we can mingle freely again!
Thanks Shelley. I fear he may be consulting a lawyer.
Thanks for the reminder Anne. That is an amazing record. Happy Birthday B&B and many more to come. Look forward to the birthday cake.
Thanks. Ha ha! Yes that's spot on, Inge. I was wondering if I could count that as a Covid swim.
