The Tulip Garden, Golden Gate Park San Francisco April 6, 2017

How was it?
Oh, it was great!
Really? The weatherman said it was raining in the City.
And windy.
And cold.
We are plein-air artists. We're used to it.
Were there a lot of tulips?
We saw a few.
How many artists were there?
I don't know, we were scattered all over the place.
How was the traffic? 
No problem, students and teachers were on spring break, but we got lost.
Lost? How can you get lost with a GPS?
Dick was driving.
How was the museum?
Those who went said it was exceptional and moving.
How was lunch?
Did you have a nice day?
It was great!
