Yikes, I hope the weather gets better. We're washed out in the San Diego area today.

Lynn and I flew with Mike and the Stephenson family until nearly dark today. Overcast nearly all day, but no rain, lots of wind (vented all day), cool, but we all had enough excersize to stay plenty warm.

We all had a very nice day.

One of the iQuad guys (Todd) is coming in early tomorrow and I may be picking him up from SNA (John Wayne) before coming to the beach. So I'll be there later than 7:30 tomorrow. ;)

Today was great, great fun.

Another great day at Kite Party.

Mike picked up Todd in the morning and in the afternoon Issac, Chris and Ken all came to fly.

Everyone looked really good. For a time, Lynn and I joined the group along with Mike Stephenson to make nine. We did lots of fun stuff without one mishap.

Lynn and I left about five, and as we drove down Pacific Coast Highway we could clearly see the others wowing spectators standing on the pier.

This makes two fun days, and the party doesn't really start until Saturday.

MORE PICS. from the Friday's dinner. I could not post any newer pics from Saturday cause, I left the photo camera battery at home :oops: and when we've got back home in the evening, there was no electricity in the whole neighborhood... :x and I could not do anything. Right now it's 8:54 AM Sunday, it's raining but I am heading out to HB anyway. Wife and kids are staying home.
