The traffic wasn't as bad as expected, so I arrived at 9am, an hour early! I found my 19th (of 25) Astronaut on the Town on the porch of Salty's restaurant. I settled down to sketch it while I waited for the sketchers to arrive.

Other than the astronaut, I really wanted to see and sketch the remains of the Kalakala. I got as far as getting the ink drawing completed when it started to rain. I tried using an umbrella but it was broken. I finally gave up and sought shelter in Salty's for a beverage and a snack. Michele and Marvin had the same idea so we sat together, talked and sketched the scene out the windows.
Fortunately, the rain stopped when it was time to share sketches.
Group inside the Kalakala: standing: Marvin, Michele, Frank, Suzanne, Teri, Kathleen; kneeling: Tina, Kate (Gwen, Linda and perhaps another sketcher left early) Teri was new today.... welcome Teri!
