Steampunks and time travellers converged on Adelaide Botanic Gardens for a picnic. We were blaessed with glorious weather and had a visit from the Lost Ninth Legion. Finally posting the event video.  A little late? Ha! Time is irrelevent.

The other was about my writing and steampunk books. But that isn’t my whole story. I have a confession to make. I’m not the person…
