Hike & Sketch Views at Alum Rock Park

Yesterday, I participated in my first Hike & Sketch with the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society Paintsites Group.  After getting the parking tickets paid for, we all gathered for coffee and pastry to thank Jenny and Sylvia for 8 years of coordinating our Paintsites Group.   Brad and Jane made brief speeches in gratitude and admiration of all the work Jenny and Sylvia put into making Paintsites a success.
