From the 1913 diary of Olga Romanov:

“Wednesday. 12 June. At 9 ½ we 4 with Nastenka, Trina and Kozhevnikov went ashore in a motorboat. There we met Aunt Olga, Knyazhich, Semyonov, and Tulupov on the rocks. We sat there, it rained, Semyonov read stories by Teffi to us… In the afternoon [we] went ashore with Papa, Aunt Olga, etc., near the telegraph. From there [we] walked to the village. There we stretched out on the grass in the sun by the church. So nice and warm… N.P., Mama, Anya, T., U., Olga, Pavl. Al., Kozhevnikov, Knyazich, Nastenka were making [pillows?] out of beans on the deck. Lots of fun…”
