Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

I had a business trip to Orlando recently and contacted Judy Wanamaker in advance about the possibility of a meet-up.

Judy organized a wonderful weekend. She and her husband, Wayne, invited me to stay with them in their lovely home (Crystal River), and I can attest that their hospitality is second to none.

On Sunday morning, Wayne and Judy took me to the Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park, where we saw a number of Florida's protected species, including quite a few manatee.

That afternoon, Judy invited Steve and Jean Creamer (Inverness) and Dawn Duffield (Tampa) to join us. Wayne rented a pontoon, and we spent several hours motoring up and down the Homosassa River. The views were spectacular.

Clockwise, from upper left: Dawn and Steve (at first, it was cold); Wayne, our skipper; Dawn and what appears to be a Nikon lens; and Jean and Judy.

(Please be sure to visit Judy's, Jean's, and Dawn's pages for a look at their photos.)

These JPG meet-ups are fun. I have enjoyed meet-ups in Arizona, Las Vegas, Idaho, New Hampshire, Maine, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida.

There are some great people at JPG.

Thanks for stopping by!
