Annual Gallery Potluck Picnic, 2011

On August 21st we got together for our fabulous annual picnic potluck—this year artist Jo (Ardella) Swanberg and hubby Neal invited us to their ranch in the hills behind Cayucos. The day was perfect—not too hot, not cold, nice and sunny. Everybody brought great food and luscious deserts, and we had tons of grilled chicken—we definitely did not leave hungry! Some of us went on expeditions to tour the property, see the pond, and go up the hill. The rest of us just had a good old time sharing stories and catching up.
