Cascadia RVing Women July at Port Townsend
All the news that fit to print about the Cascadia invasion of Port Townsend last month: Led by the ever faithful Carlene, 21 rigs and 38 women gathered at Point Hudson Marina and RV Park July 26–28, 2019, where we enjoyed great weather, beautiful views of mountains and sea, and scintillating company. We were graced by the presence of Cascadia royalty: charter members Bonnie Blossom, Cathy Atkins, Vicki Para, and Care de Leeuw. And, to provide additional adult supervision, Sherry Lombard brought along her mom, who proved to be a good sport and a 50-50 winner.
After overindulging at the potluck dinners on Friday and Saturday evenings, we had singalongs accompanied by Ginny Clein and Diane Phillips on their ukuleles. We could have used the help of Leslie and Sage, but they abandoned us—and Byrdie could not pull herself away from Catan.
On Saturday morning, we tuned into the Port Townsend vibe and channeled our inner hippy. Carlene whipped up berry and mango smoothies for us, and Michael Gilman led us in a Tai Chi session.
The book club met in the afternoon and discussed “The Hate You Give,” while others wandered into town to shop, eat ice cream, visit the farmers’ market, and get some exercise climbing the hills. After dinner, more singing, fun, and games.
Before bidding each other adieu and happy trails on Sunday morning, we christened the rigs of Jessie Logan and Kathyrn Engle. Next stop, Westport!
