I was right; it was more fun with company! I took four dozen photos, including one of a wedding party that looked definitely NOT in a party mood, being out in the damp in formal wear for fogged-in wedding photos. grrlpup was very patient while sanguinity and I discussed agent simulation and programming languages, but we all pitched in on how bees communicate, Biosphere II and the PBS reality-show
The rest of the day was boring stuff: Errands, shopping, and assembling Comic 163 for Monday. But since the Pittock Mansion trip was so enjoyable, I’ll be sure to schedule more spontaneous events in the future.
