The cutest neighbors ever arrive curling their tails: Newbienchen Zane and Tanja Byron.

On the hangar below the Main Hall, the stock version of the new SC Boeing F/A-18C Hornet in preview. The poor weather over the Aldabra Sea and scheduling matters prevented a fly by this year.

Tanja and Newbie. The cats having a ball! And spot Lilah, the other cat in the picture, if you can.

CDR. Stenvaag joins the dancing trio.

Can you see her now? LCDR. Kaz's pet, Lilah takes (another) nap. That cat can sleep through a hurricane.

This year, Ms. Shana Carpool honored us with her presence.

Dancing with the wind. Ms. Carpool in relaxed attire as always, sporting her 2018 Blue Angels team jacket.

Winding down as the ball nears it's closing hour.

Last ones standing and a new record! LCDR. Kaz and Mr. Star close the ball. And Lilah.

The day comes to an end at Miramar, and a new year begins. Go Navy!
