On Sunday morning, October 6, 2002, after breakfast there were but a few of us left, so we went over to York and took our own picture with our camera setting on a tripod.  Our balloons kept blowing in the wind and we were all laughing as Punky Stevens kept running back and forth to the camera to check on its timer.  And it was a difficult moment for us all as we hugged one another and departed from this place.  So here is the last picture...on the last day...until we reconvene once again in ????

The last picture...on the last day
      from where future generations
         ...not unlike us...will come and go
              ...just like us.
