Howard and Linda drove to our house and the four of us drove to Huntington Beach SP and took a quick auto tour before heading to meet the group. First we stopped at Gin and Syl's site. They were just getting set up. Syl was on the roof and saw Nancy and I get out of the car. When more car doors open and they saw Howard and Linda...yes they were surprised. Next we went to Sherry and David's site. Nancy knocked on the door. Sherry answered and was all set to make some "we're not buying any" wisecrack to Nancy when she saw Linda standing to her side. The look on Sherry's face was priceless...wish we had the camera ready!!
After initial hugs and greetings, we gathered at Gin and Syl's site in the woods where we shared stories and RV advice with each other, laughing almost non-stop.

Sherry and Linda all 'Dressed-up' to go out for dinner!
Temperature dropped so we headed inside... Yes, you can put MANY people in a RV!!
We topped the day off by having a nice dinner at one of Nancy's and my favorite restaurants -- The Hot Fish Club. A good meal and great company is hard to beat and this was no exception. As we parted company it is always a bit sad, but we were not saying good-byes, we were saying things like: "See you in Florida next month" or See you in April at The RV-Dreams Rally."
Nancy and I just think it is so amazing that RV-Dream Family Friends seem to go out of their way to get together. Most of us have only spent limited time together, but when we get together, it is like old home week. That's what RV-Dreams is all about. It brings like minded people together in friendship and fun. Then along with that, we all learn something from each other. It's a beautiful thing. Thanks so much Howard and Linda for all you do to make RV-Dreams so special!!
What a Terrific Day -- Thanks to ALL!
I really did not get many photos of the gathering. I was too busy listening and laughing!!
