Our Girly Weekend in Long Beach

Sunday, July 27, 2008 at 2:18 PM
You can go to Dianne's blog for a detailed description of our weekend trip to Long Beach, Ca.  She is correct in that I got more sleep than she did but after joining her for lunch on Saturday I headed to the aquarium and while waiting in line I began to feel queasy.  Unlike that hangover feeling, this was something I ate.  I decided not to spend the money to sketch at the aquarium and instead headed for a restroom and then just tried to keep hydrated.  I sat at the lighthouse and people watched and did a couple of sketches.  Then I wandered to the bookstore and relaxed in the a/c till Dianne's class was over.  We had a fun weekend and of course we didn't really get drunk, just happy!  This is a photo of Dianne at the show; in case she's denying she was there:

Here is a view of the harbor from our hotel room:
and here is my sketch of the Queen Mary, as she sits docked for eternity it seems.

    I love your Queen Mary sketch! But I would have been inside at Quilt Festival with Diane!

    Great job on this Marta!! Sounds like a fun weekend too.

  3. There will be a big Quilt Show in Dallas... April, I think.
    Good for you to take care of yourself in the A/C or the loo as the case may be. I could not believe how BIG the QM was when we went there a while back. Was exhausted just walking the deck!

    Sounds like a great weekend, except for maybe the hangover and the tummy thing! Sorry you missed the aquarium. Perhaps we will plan a sketchcrawl there after school starts and the crowds are less. Love your sketch of the Queen.
