This morning I woke up early, just beat the crowd at Starbucks for breakfast (had another gift card) and I made my way over to my first workshop of the day. It was excellent to say the least, I left with tons of ideas, I can't wait to use them.
After the workshop I hit the Exhibit Hall one last time because I had to replace the posters that got ruined by my malicious water bottle yesterday. But then I saw one ARC, then another, and another. Then the publishers were just giving EVERYTHING away. I mean these are books, free books, but it's not like I am never going to see it published. So I had to calm down.
|This is the madness that I refer to when I talk about the Exhibit Hall.|
|Only the crowds on Monday at noon look more like this. It's crushing.|
|This is the line to the post office. Yes I have another box worth of books, |
but no way am I getting in this line. Time for creative packing.
There was another line for this author, Newbery winner, Kwane Alexander!
|Claire Lynn Designs makes these fun tees. A whole booth of 'em!|
|I had another workshop I wanted to attend, but it was pretty terrible.
So after some urging, |
I followed a friend's advice and took off exploring. I went down to the Ferry Building Marketplace.
|I sat on the dock people watching, then I just had to get some ice
cream, with fresh strawberries. |
It was delicious. It felt like I was back in London. Hot weather, ice cream, resting in a park.
Yeah, that's what I did in London.
I had read about these fountains and gardens, the Yerba Buena Gardens.They are peaceful, and there were so many people taking advantage of
this loveliness on this cloudless day.
|Notice the rainbow flags behind the waterfall|
|I'm not sure how many miles I walked today, but it was a lot. |
This is my dinner, after another luxurious hot bubble bath with an Advil chaser and I'm calling it a night.
