Breakfast Club (& Sketching) on The Lawn

My first entree to a Lawn Room.
The Breakfast Club: boys, bagels, beer.
Right, The standard gear for journeys to and from the community bathroom, by way of the arcade, and the standard issue rocking chair which suited me just fine.
Left, the list of this room's tenants by year - all the way back to 1895.
There is an abbreviated bathroom in one corner and an abbreviated kitchen in another, the bedroom and study share a corner, and the living room centers around a handmade door table. The large flatscreen sits on the fireplace mantel. Just as Jefferson envisioned.
And now we get to work, drawing Pavilion III, using our simple tools for gauging proportion.
Our friend, Marina, is engrossed in giving a trial tour.  She is one of 300-400 hopefuls to try out and one of about 60 to be called back for an interview. When she passes the interview, she'll be one of a select group or official U.Va. tour guides. 
The Lawn must be mowed. And we find ourselves adjusting our seats to avoid being mowed.
