    Our itinerary will depend on the temptations that befall me. One day I will find beach volley ball.

    @donaldejose I have a small SD chip and would love a few night street shots at 12,800 up to 50k. Either tonight or tomorrow night if it is feasible.

    For those in attendance, given our past gatherings, I hope there is a Nikon service center near by...LoL

    Well, things are pretty much rounded up here in St Augustine except for a couple of us who will persevere until Monday. The photo ops were outstanding, and getting together with friends always the best. Tomorrow..the group travels back to places like Poland, California, Atlanta, and other parts of Florida. Then later the remaining folks to Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

    Now, to begin the plans for next year....out west I believe will be the aim.

    Photos from my cameras are on Flickr at

    However, one more breakfast at Cafe Eleven...wonderful coffee....

    I am still so appreciative of those who attended this years NRFGT. I think we all enjoyed the photo ops and fellowship. This thread will remain up for awhile, then when the West Coast event is announced for next year....

    So, Golf007...ball in your court B) So says this fellow:

    I enjoyed it also. It is so nice to finally get to know some of the people behind the screen names. Oregon coast next year? Olympic Peninsula? Northern California? San Diego Zoo? Lots of options out there.
