Fidalgo Bay RV Resort
March 18 – 20, 2022
Cascadia RVing Women opened their 2022 season in Anacortes, WA, at Fidalgo Bay RV Resort. Eighteen rigs, bringing twentyfour intrepid people (plus a few who stayed in local hotels), showed up, braving the elements for a chance to see old friends and welcome new ones to our group. We had long-time members and relatively new members, as well as some just-joined folks and others checking us out to see if they want to join us. It was a great mix of people.
The weather was typical of a Northwest spring with chilly temperatures, buckets of rain, an unexpected day of sun, lots of clouds and more rain. Some of us counted ourselves lucky not to be electrocuted while plugging into the power poles in the pouring rain while standing in large puddles. None of that slowed us down with our activities and we had an enjouable weekend lead by our captains, Joan and Heather, who provided us with food, fun, and games, and our President Sherry who kept us on track with the schedule.
Many of us arrived on Thursday afternoon which gave us extra time to catch up with friends after a long COVID hiatus. The official event began on Friday evening with a social hour complete with appetizers and a get acquainted game. After we all figured out which woman musician we were (names stuck on our backs), we enjoyed a potluck dinner, the most notable item of which was Heather’s killer chocolate cake. Then, after dog walking, people returned to the clubhouse to play games and continue with catching up on everyone’s lives.
Saturday morning we gathered for a breakfast of bagels, yogurt, fruit, coffee, etc. provided by the club. After breakfast, the book group met to discuss Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (April’s book will be The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles.) while the rest of us were left to our own devices for the remainder of the day. As the sun was out, many people went for walks along the nearby Tommy Thompson trail, went into town, played games, visited, or just relaxed. We gathered for another potluck in the evening and were not disappointed. We enjoyed many fine dishes and when full, were coerced into having another helping of the now-famous chocolate cake.
The after dinner entertainment was a Bunco tournament complete with prizes for most wins, most losses, and most Buncos. It was the usual rowdy noisy affair. A few hardy souls stayed around after that for more games before calling it a night.
Sunday morning we gathered again for coffee and breakfast and, as is our tradition, we officially ended the weekend with a slightly off key rendition of “Going to the Campground” before saying goodbye. It was a fun weekend and very nice to see everyone again.
Our next event will be at the Burlington, WA KOA Kampground on April 15 – 17.
