Yes .. It WAS a birthday party!

Happy Birthday Catharine!

Where better place to have a birthday party than one that you love and cherish?  The chatter began the last trip south, and the decision was simple – San Juanico!  Cynthia said – yes – I’ll cook – We’ll have a party!  And so the plans began.

Martin drove up from Todos Santos.  Drake drove down from Oregon.  Pat drove from Montana.  George arrived from Santa Inez.  Saw Dennis the night before.  The rest of the crew was already in place – one way or another.  To all participants .. Thank you!  It was a GRAND TIME!
