Robin's Best Shirt Award, April 5, 2013

The high season should be winding down, but you would never know it by the number of people who flock to the Lol Ha Beach Bar on the first Friday of the month for Robin's Best Shirt Award event.  This month was no exception, as there was another overflow crowd clamoring for the attention of the waiters and the judges, led by Mary Henderson, Robin's sister.  The judges were under undue pressure as the number of excellent entries made their decision to be extremely difficult. But, as usually happens, the cream rose to the top.
