Queen Mary aftermath pt 2: Saturday

Sorry about no update yesterday, I was a zombie that day.

Saturday we started the day off with a seminar on vintage fountain pens. I had some and learned quite a bit about their age (I have a beater from the 30s!). This is my friend Marci and me right before the talk.

After that the group decided to do some outdoors-ness and we went for a picnic.

Here we are in the large grass area adjacent to the ship. Our spread was quite generous, and I even made spiked lemonade. It was good, and gone in a flash! Someone even brought a beach chair. One member of our group decided to give the unfolding a go. His first attempt was not too good.

With one more swing of the legs, he got it working and soon others began sitting in it.

After some time, the gals and I decided that we wanted to go to the 'pile', so we did.

We spend hours digging in that thing. IT was worth it for the experience more than anything. We even got to the bottom, I felt concrete!

After the pile we went to a fellow Lounger's room and I did a sewing talk. Some of the ladies there already knew how to sew, and I went over some things for others and had a big show and tell. It was splendid!

That evening we had 20+ people for dinner, and I wore my evening gown and bolero that I made.

We went to the Observation Bar and saw a cool vintage band (brought in by the Lounge!) and headed by Jonathan Stout & the Campus Five. Some vintage dancers even came. It was nice seeing the regular crowd there enjoying the band as much as they did. They often clapped the loudest.

By midnight I was pooped and headed home.
It was a grand weekend and then there was SUNDAY!!
