Up early and going to have breakfast before heading to the show. Today is the last day and we have so many people to pay our respects to!
I hope to get some more photos added tonight, but depends on how tired I am after flying home.
Here is a photo to add that just shows the fun of mineral folks!
Come back, over the next day or two, for more photos.

Had a wonderful time visiting with everyone and looking at great minerals today. Jim and I managed to visit many friends who were dealers at the show. I want to thank Marty, Rose and the crew that put this event together. What a fabulous array of minerals we found!
I am sitting on a plane at 37,000 feet at the moment, using the Internet. The marvels of modern day science! I will continue my show report soon.

Home, at last! Jim and I had a lobster sub at the airport which was just wonderful, so my quest for lobster was tamed for the time being. Growing up in Massachusetts made me a lobster lover a long time ago!
Anyhow, let's get back to Friday's photos....

Thanks Gail once again for sharing your mineral travels with us.

BTW..I too have a MA/lobster connection, having once worked for a management consulting firm in Boston. Their orientation retreat was on Martha's Vinyard where i had the best lobster!
