Yawn ... morning folks... !!!!
Thanks to all those Mites who came to the meet. We couldn't sit outside as it was raining but we opened the lounge doors and it cooled the airdown.
Lovely to see you Sparrow, Tawny and SO, Elsa and Klystrom , and Lee lewis and her Daughter.. and of course Val and Dungb.We have taken a few photos must just ask a few mites permission to publish their faces ... and there was not a provita in sight.
Val and Dungb left a short while ago and I hope the weather improves for their drive to Port Edward. They both had a real breakfast this morning. and said the room was comfy .. For those that were there last night The" lady "with all the complaints left this morning!!!!. Her employer could find no fault with the room but she believes the room was no up to standard.. anyway glad they went.. sorry mites I may have been a bit grumpy after she gave me uphill.
Hope Val posts some piccies soon . She uploaded all her KNP photos onto flicker while she had a faster connection.

Who has the pics, Val or Eliz?
I do know there was a lot of flashing and banging going on, at one stage I thought there was lightning around! :tongue:

May I also add my belated thanks to Hugh and Eliz for once again throwing the doors, quite literally, open to another Durban meet.
I just love meeting new faces and hearing all the interesting tales, this time mainly from Sparrow, Val & dungb who had just returned from Kruger. :D

Thanks to everyone for the delicious plates of snacks. :clap:

I was just sorry more mites could not make it but do understand it was maybe a difficult time due to many folk having just started work again.

Ok, hopefully pics soon but I might have to edit them first! :roll:
