Norm - Welcomed group and took a Screen Shot of those attending tonight.

Diane - Introduced Speaker Nancy Sexton - Latin America and Galapagos Islands Trip - May 2019

Nancy delivered an excellent photo slideshow of her 8-day cruise through Lindblad Expedition / National Geographic. Plus several days before and after in Ecuador and Bogota, Columbia. Nancy likes to "tell a story" when she travels through her pictures, which she did! Music alongside the photos were enjoyable too! Here are just a few of her photos: Starting in Ecuador; Hummingbird Preserve, Hiking trails, Chocolate tour, Iguana Park, Colorful Architecture all around in buildings, stores, windows. Flew to Galapagos Islands then to zodiac boat to ship. Lots of animals; seals, blue-footed boobies, iguanas, amazing birds, albatrosses, sea turtles, crabs, etc. Flew to Bogota, Columbia - Toured sugarcane factory, volcano, mud bath, lots of street art and Catholic Cathedral. (Please see all the recorded photos, fascinating to observe that part of the world). Very enjoyable presentation.
