July 02, 2018

Hi All . . . We had six coaches at the Cove outing. We were all impressed with the friendly and helpful owners. The weather didn't cooperate, so many of our outdoor games were cancelled, but we had a great time visiting with each other. Friday night we went to a local restaurant for dinner. The food was average, but the desserts were amazing. Next time, I will go with 2 desserts!! 

A number of us took the short drive to Port Townsend on Saturday to see some of the artwork Darrell Wood creates. They are sold at an awesome woodcraft gallery there. The woodwork is amazing. We then had lunch at a nice little restaurant that makes all their food and breads from scratch. Ed and Sharon drove up, joined us for lunch, and participated in the days’ activities.

We could not do our outdoor games, but we were able to set up a couple of heaters in the gazebo so we could have our meeting and dinner. As always, we had great food and enjoyed each other’s company.

Sunday morning we had our breakfast of a biscuit and gravy casserole and hash browns, very tasty. The 50/50 drawing was won by a very deserving person, ME. We had so much fun here that the group decided we should come back next year. We have it booked for July of 2019. Crabbing season will be open then so bring your pots.

Jolene and I stayed until Monday so we explored a bit on Sunday. 2 1/2 miles down the side rode from the campground, there are tide pools, and the state has planted oysters and clams that you can dig during certain seasons. Oysters were open for gathering while we were there, you just had to shuck them on the beach and leave the shells there. Shrimping season was open the Friday and Saturday we were there, so there was a ton of shrimp shells all over the beach. We took the short drive into Brinnon and explored Whitney gardens and nursery. They have a wonderful trail through the trees and flowers. If you could not make it this year, come join us next July for this fun event.
