While we were in Lithuania, we went to the annual picnic of the Vilnius science fiction club Dorado. The picnic took place in Pūčkoriai. It is a scenic place on the outskirts of Vilnius that’s known for a 65-meter-high vertical precipice, called Pūčkorių atodanga (Pūčkorių exposure). It overlooks the valley of the Vilnia river and the surrounding hills.
Me, with baby E in a sling, at the Lithuanian science fiction fandom picnic. We are about to head into the park and find a place on the grass to spread the blankets on.

These are the Vilnius science fiction fandom picnickers, well into demolishing the food. Picnicking old-style on a blanket on the grass. At least back then the Pūčkoriai park did not have any such amenities as picnic tables. Not sure if it has them even now.
After the picnic, some folks played volleyball in the park. S joined them too.
