Labor day weekend

How did everyone's weekend go? Did anybody have time to get out and paint? I went to Ocean Cove, north of Fort Ross and I did one painting there. A second one didn't come out well so I scraped it off. :) The highlight of the trip was my car broke down and we had to call tow away to get back home.
