2016 RWA San Diego in Pictures

We’re baaaack!

The Romance Writer’s of America conference in San Diego was A-Mazing! First off, the city is beautiful and everyone there was so friendly. San Diego is California at it’s finest! The conference, itself, was great—workshops, networking, education, opportunities, seeing old friends, making new friends and fun, fun, fun! Just as I’ve done every year since 2009, I’m going to share the conference in pictures.

Sailing around the bay with some awesome ladies. This was one of those times of “what happens on the sailboat, stays on the sailboat”.

Sailboat, sunset, navy ship, I should win an award for this pic.

There you have it. More than you ever wanted to see of our trip to San Diego. We’re looking forward to the 2017 RWA National Conference in Orlando, Florida!

    Thanks, Lo. We had loads of fun, learned a few new things, and now battle with exhaustion while catching up. It was an awesome conference.

    Had so much fun, I’m still recovering-Now to put it all in perspective and get the pages out. (I need a vacation to recover from the conference- and of course I need to refine my picture taking skills and periscopeing ala twitter. )
