We had chatted on the site with Gianina (Gianina007) many times over the last few months and when we found out she was visiting California from her home in England we knew we had to set up some kind of meetup, whether it was a big thing or just a few of us.

We all had a very nice meal and continued to chat for quite some time after finishing our meals. Then it was outside to take pictures, say our goodbyes to Julie and Alan, her dad, and take Gianina back to the house where she was staying.

Then on the way home we captured a couple of shots of the sunset, which was very pretty that evening.
A long day, but so worth every mile. And at nearly 50 miles per gallon, dirty cheap!! LOL
