The weather was marvelous and the organizer had maps and entry passes to marinas, wetlands, lighthouse, etc. for all of us. Everywhere we went we ran into other painters (you can tell them by the multicolored speckles on their clothes). And we made lots of new friends. There was cookout Saturday night where everyone brought the fruits of their labors to display and on Sunday the work was displayed for sale at a local gallery. We had a lovely time and have lots of new stories to tell on each other.
