Friday Update with added information

We will meet in the vicinity of the entranceway to the Gardens depicted by the purple pin in the image below.

At 11:00am we will gather in the Blue Palmetto Café to share lunch and experiences. This is a great opportunity to become better acquainted with each other. (Here's a link to the cafe's menu: http://boktowergardens.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Blue-Palmetto-Cafe-Menu.pdf).

See you there!

    What an incredible place to visit and shoot! Can't wait to go back. We covered so little and had so many diverse and exciting images to capture. Meeting for lunch afterwards to share and get to know each other better topped off a great day. Thanks again , Chuck!

      Ditto, and yes, we are eagerly looking forward to seeing your images, Brenda. It was nice seeing you again and your obvious enjoyment all around the gardens.

    Thanks Brenda, I also enjoyed the meetup. I was wondering when you would put your pictures up. How did your spider pictures come out. I was hoping for a good shot but I felt mine were way too busy. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Just wanted to thank Paul, Chuck and Brenda for making me feel so welcome at my first meetup. I learned a lot in a short time. Looking forward to the next meetup. Thank you Paul for sharing your equipment, and your knowledge.

    Loved the pictures from the shoot!! REALLY missed going! Daughter going to be okay - broken leg + cuts and bruises but nothing serious except for my lack of sleep from being in ER all night!

    Perfect weather. Perfect attendees. Perfect opportunities for landscape, macro and architectural photography.

    A carpool from Melbourne is available. If you need a ride, please contact me using Meetup email. Otherwise, I look forward to our enjoying an exciting time in these historic gardens.

    Since I see no mention of a meeting place, I take it we are not carpooling, so I'll see everyone there. "The entranceway" above = the Visitor's Center outside entranceway, correct?

    It appears I will be in the Keys and unable to attend the Bok Tower shoot. When on the road in retirement, one never knows.

    • Chuck K.

      Have lots of fun! You'll be missed.

    The map link @ the above website doesn't work - best go to another site.

      Perhaps so - I tried again and it worked.

      Hi Carole, I look forward to seeing you again Sunday. We should have a great outing!

  • Michele K.

    Hi i am new to the group and Bok tower will be my first outing. Was wondering if there is a meeting place once I get there.

    March 6, 2014

    • Chuck K.

      Hello Michelle. I look forward to meeting you Sunday morning. As to your question, I just added a Friday Update above that should help you to find us. Look for an 8 1/2" x 11" NANPA Sign. See you soon.
