We Make an Impression(ism)

The weather was beautiful, Southern California in June can be cloudy, drizzly or 110. It's a toss up.
We all must have been very, very good because we got perfection. A beautiful blue sky with lofty clouds and a gentle breeze. The only hick-up was the loss of the croquet wickets. This year the team rivals of Temperance v. Drunkards had to make it a drinking contest, guess who won.
The ladies, hard by a fountain. Walter photo bombs them.
The light is amazing with the mountains in the deep background. Some people like the beach, I love a mountain 
The location is Rancho Camulos in Piru, the place where Helen Hunt Jackson stayed right before she wrote "Ramona". Yup, History.
This is an annual picnic, it's had a few locations, this is our fourth year at the Rancho, I think we have found our home.
Anyway, blah, blah, explanations. A picture is worth a thousand words. You can fill them in.
Paul and Niko, you guess which is which.

Boris bombs Doreen and Alan

Oh, Dow! Lorraine and Athene are tolerant.

Walter, Sheila put down those plates!

Cal and Rover, first timers but old friends.

Charles, pensive. Will it be gin punch or champagne next?

The Chief! Or as we like to call him "Angus McKilty"
We requireonly three things, eating, drinking and lounging.

Athene, pretty as a picture. She better be toasting me....
The gentlemen were adamant, they wanted to show off their bustles. Chuck is the only one horrified. Sigh

It's like you where there! Come out to So. Ca. next Spring and you will be.
Ever Your Thimble Servant,
Miss Brilliantine
