Huge thanks goes to Bush Baptist for organising! :dance: :dance: :dance: :clap: :clap: :clap:

It was great meeting you, Munchkin and SO, Brooklynbirder, SO and guide, Dinkybird and Hawk and seeing P@m again.

Being on the forum lets us meet like minded people whom we can learn so much from. I am really grateful for the time put in by everybody to make this such a happy place. :D :D :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I look forward to the next meet.

What a great time!

Nice to see some 'regulars' and welcome newbies, as we met with Brooklyn Birder & SO, who made it in spite of the long flights(s). Have a great time here & in Kgalagadi.Hope Leon takes you to lots of lifers and the black maned monsters.

Nice to meet Rookie & SO and hear some scare stories.
Munchkin & SO enjoyed themselves (as they always do)!
P@m was alone again as SO is away.
DB & Hawk, after a visit about 4 years ago, are now official members of the CT forumites and wasted no time in asking me to organise a forum birding outing. So in the spring I will do so. If you are not a birder and you would llke to start somewhere, this is for you. None of us is hotshot enough to be intimidating, and the emphasis is on fun. Please come along.

Ditto!

Thank you all for making Hawk and me so welcome as CT mites. You are indeed a special group and it was great to finally meet you guys in person. We so look forward to the birding meet BB, thanks for being prepared to arrange one, and look forward to all future CT meets.

It was such a lovely evening - wonderful to share time with folk who love this forum so much and love SANParks and nature. I could have listened to your stories for hours more.

BrooklyBirder, SO and Leon ... so glad the weather here is perfect for you guys today. Have an awesome time in the Cape and on your travels. Lovely to have met you!

BB - thanks for arranging last night.

We just have a moment of wifi here at Berthas restaurant in Simonstown. We had aGreat time at the meet and it was such a fun way to spend our first evening. So great to meet you all and thanks to BB for arranging it all. So far we've had fabulous weather and 89 birds! Probably won't have wifi for awhile so will check in asap. Tomorrow we are off to Cape Point.
