Westport Wrap Up
Quite a few Cascadians found their way down to Westport early. Some showed up on Wednesday. Let the party begin. We had a record turnout, and many new faces. We had folks from as far away as North Carolina, Arizona, California. There were also a bunch of our Canadian members.
Bonnie and Fran greeted all in their role of "Hi There Girls." Many went to town on Friday for lunch, and hit the candy and souvenir shops. The RVs kept coming in. Friday evening we counted 75 guests as we enjoyed our Finger Foods, which have turned into an impromptu meal. The park owner talked to us about Westport, things to do and see, and the town plans for the future. Then, after dog walking, we joined Care and Ki for line dancing, which is always a good and fun workout. There was the usual Texas Hold 'em game, but many just circulated and visited, and visited friends' bonfires.
The fisherwomen retired early as a 6 a.m. boat trip awaited them. Six hardy ladies took off for the day, promising to bring in a big catch, which they did. The boat maxed out and the sea bass were passed around. Saturday, after a talk from Steve Perry of Poulsbo RV on the subject of "how to shop for an RV," the biking group took the ferry to Ocean Shores, and those of us who stayed behind went to town, enjoyed the old car show, and the beaches, casino hopped, and some went with Care and Ki to fly kites.
Judy Dorst gave a brush up talk on pinochle and told of the pinochle tournament we were going to have on Saturday evening after our pot luck. Twenty eight women played with Jill coming out the winner and Sue Ellen coming in second. There was another Texas Hold 'em game and more bonfires that evening.
Sunday, after our breakfast, we christened several RVs - that is always a fun part of our Sunday morning. Many of us had to leave and did so envying those that could stay another day.
Our next gathering will be in Cle Elum, and the float trip is quite a draw. Hope to see you there!
