    The lady in this picture is local artist Erika A. Buddin.
    She attended most Sundays for many years in the 1970's, often with her husband and children. I being the youngest of her 3 daughters was with her on many of these days. Although young I remember the other artists being really friendly and would often chat together in groups like this.
    A lovely way to spend a Sunday, friends and beautiful views.
