Queens Quarter in the Rain

That's my Palletteers: neither rain nor anything else will keep them from painting! Last Friday's site was once known as the Queens Quarter Hotel. It got "Hugo'ed" during that infamous hurricane and has recently been transformed into the Queens Quarter Villas. There's no longer a hotel or restaurant, but the footprint of the former hotel has been refurbished into an events building for parties, weddings, etc. The buildings are nicely restored and everything is very attractive and beautifully landscaped. The old cottages are now long term rental villas.
Unfortunately we had a rainy morning there. Everyone huddled under the roof of the events building to avoid the raindrops. About 10 people showed up and only five painted anything they considered worth showing. Emy brought the lamp she'd decorated for the Women's Coalition and Laura got several new recruits for lamp painting this coming Tuesday. It's definitely a site we'll want to paint at again.
