Sunset Get-Together in April - the Rest of the Evening

Our true purpose in these get-togethers is to spend time with friends. 
Plain and simple. But you've got to have a "cause", so ours is a pilgrimage to Captain Jack's.  After an enjoyable row, all the boats arrive (preferrably together), and tie up to the dock (which we always hope is available).

Two gondolas double-parking while a third moves into position.

Tim and Mark tend to the tie-off
as Scott and Michelle wave to the camera.

Once the group arrives, everyone heads inside to either use the bathroom,
or create a need to use the bathroom.
Lively discussions take place at the bar.

Basso and Ignacio have a discussion of their own with the bartender.

Not everyone was in the room for this photo,
but I talked the bartender into taking it
and didn't want him to change his mind.

Eventually we make our way back onto the boats.
Everyone does their best to find the right boat.

The exciting re-boarding process.

Some are more enthusiastic than others about the row back.

Mike Bixler gets the prize for "most enthusiastic".

Members of the Coronado contingent heading out.

Once under way, more singing takes place. 
I particularly enjoyed this brief display of angelic voices by Rachel Grizzel and her friend Erin Scheller.

At the end of the evening some of us stood for one more photo at the rail, before we stumbled off to sleep deeply and wake up late the next day.
The "finishers".

It was a lot of fun, and I can't wait until the next one.
Big thanks to Tim and Dawn for a great tradition.
