There are 15 of us. We’ll plan to find a place to eat afterward and share our photos. You’ll love it.! When I went (2013) we were allowed to bring something you might want to include in a picture. I took an antique duck decoy and a small, very old Teddy Bear that I captured in a few neat places. They fit in the antiquity and colors beautifully. Fun idea. I’m so excited! Dottie
