Sunday morning May 25th on our first bus-ride - Miami to Highlands Hammock in central Florida. A half dozen happy Aussies in the first photo and time for a box lunch (third photo) once we had arrived, with Batya from Israel, Tom and Dan from Kona, Hawaii, and Kim! :)

Actually, after the dinner and before the presentation we were treated to a delightful hula by some truly talented dancers. Well, it all started that way, and then, well, see for yourself. :bemused: Needless to say, I'm refraining from naming names... :innocent: (And that's all for tonight - I'll see if I have more tomorrow - feel free to add to this thread . :) )

Great Daryl, thanks for some openers, The Motorcycle cop story was amazing, yes, perhaps Jeff could regale that one.

Thanks for all the additional photos Daryl. That "cop photo" is priceless (not to mention the story behind it! :) ). Turns out I have very few people pix. Need to take more on the next Biennial! :bummed: Here's one of me and Kim at the Silver Palm Nature Trail in Bahia Honda Key (that was a scorcher! :bemused: ) and the next day - an outstanding visit to the Audubon House & Garden in Key West. We (Kim, myself and Larry Klotz from Pennsylvania) were given an excellent guided tour by Tim (kwtimo here on PalmTalk). Definitely a highlight of our all too brief Key West visit. :)

If It had not been for Mike Green's (Newcal) fantastic bowling i could not have caught a slips catch of Andy Greens bat and Wal (the Wicki) could not have appealed to the umpire, Andy was out for a duck

NOW i hope that is clear to the baseball players :-) ;-)

That's a great photo and a great effort by yourself Colin, Classic catch for sure!!

That photo is one of those freeze frames where I found myself wondering what happened next, Did you land on your feet Colin??? I'm thinking not??

As usual the biennial looks though it was a ton of fun. The gardens look spectacular and the palm peeps look like they were having the time of their lives. Sorry that I had to miss it.

Nice to meet you too Ken, that was a great day at Don's.

I see California Chrome missed out on the treble.

Hope you didn't have much money on that race, Wal...

Pleasure meeting y'all, and I'm sure Don enjoyed the visit as well.

One of these days I'll have to come to Oz; hopefully before the next Triple Crown failure... ;)
