As a followup to Larry's post in the other section with the underwater web cams, the link below will take you to a live web cam of the homosassa river looking east-ish. This is the main boat ramp at MacRae's. Straight ahead is Monkey Island, and to the right of the island is where we'll be staying. Not a lot of activity during the middle of the week, but certainly can be entertaining on a busy weekend.

Sorry to eg ear that Steven, but I kinda figured it. :( We'll keep praying for her!

Just a quick planning to matter to consider. Typically, we've had a group dinner together on Saturday night. What is everyone's thought this time around? I don't advocate actually doing any planning around it in the formal sense. There are numerous restaurant options if that's the preferred route. If we want to have a meal together at the resort, then we just need to determine that so we can plan to contribute. We are good with either option.

Was planning on being there this year. Have canceled room reservation, because we will be out of state at the "meet's" time. Will really miss seeing everyone again. Been quite a long time. Have fun! John

How many do we have left? It's within 10 days now and we had many cancellations.
Let's do a count of who will go.
I'll go but who else?

I counted and there is a good crowd left.
Correct me if I am wrong:
- Majorgator
- Dawngad
- Cracker larry
- Chopperman
- Topwater
- Aripeka Angler
- Capeman
- Doc Dyer
and myself.
Plus Ken Owens and maybe some others who live close and will drive to meet us.
Those 3 cancellations are sad and I kept counting them 4 or 5 times. . .

Any plans for cooking? I don't think it's possible there but a dinner altogether sounds fine.
