I probably won't be able to afford two long distance trips in one year. The cost of the retreat I can do but not the plane tickets. Sorry Thea and Barbara.

Barbara,

don't remove me from the Branson list yet. I'm still trying to make both work.

Thea:

I am upset and I am trying not to be - but I really want to meet Nana and Kris and now because the Beachcombers retreat has been set so close to the date of the Branson retreat where we are all going to meet up ... now because of this people are talking about cancelling the Branson to go to the west coast - is there any chance that we can stretch the distance between the retreats so that those with money issues don't need to crunch numbers but can enjoy all the retreats.  

I hate it that there may be cancellations as this is what happened last year with the Walnut retreat - the west coast Leavenworth retreat was scheduled during and people cancelled from the Walnut Retreat...I think that we should schedule them at least 2 months separations so all can enjoy!

And I am dissapointed that I haven't met you and Barbara.  The problem with the dates is trying to find a time open at these places where they have room available, that is off season, and the weather won't make it too difficult to get to.  When we started the retreats, I never expected that folks would be traveling so far across country to go to one.  And since we had to turn people away from the Leavenworth retreat for lack of space, we decided another west coast retreat was needed.  And off season means that many who otherwise could not afford to go to a retreat, can go.    It is not easy to schedule in these places, even a year ahead can be difficult to get in. 

The Leavenworth retreat last year was the first retreat to be scheduled, then Walnut retreat was scheduled, and our only option for Leavenworth this year was to schedule at the same time as the previous year. 

A summer retreat would be really nice, specially for school employees who can't get away during the school year.

Karla, I have put you into unit number 8, with Bertie and her husband, and Bev and her DH.  You can check it out on line.  It is a very nice unit.  That would bring the cost for that unit down to about 250 per couple, for 5 nights.

Hi Patti,

I am going to have to make a retreat (heehee) from the 2013 Oregon coast, Beachcomber's Haven, Gleneden Beach. Oct 13-18.

Would you please take my name off of the list for this. I don't know what I was thinking. Well I do but won't go there.lol

I will say that after seeing and reading the post from your Leavenworth trip I got caught up in the moment.

Thanks

Nana:

I still am planning on going to Branson.  I am just trying to work numbers to make it to Oregon too.   I have never been to either place.  And I really want to go to Branson to meet Frances and some of the others that I haven't had a chance to meet.    So Thea don't worry ... Branson is pretty much a definite unless something happen between now and then.

 

Great because im dying to meet you and Gini and i was really hoping to meet Kris (so sorry Kris im hoping you can go to Branson).

lots of love

Francesxx

Judy T-Bellingham:

People, this is a drop dead gorgeous location. I stopped there last month and spoke with the manager. The beach is across the street, the units are apartments with kitchens, living rooms, the whole she-bang. The sewing room is to die for with supplied ironing boards, irons, cutting tables and mats. 

Gals, I can vouch for this!!!  It doesn't get any better...and this is an absolutely fantastic price!  Also, when Judy T says the beach is "across the street"...it is like walking across a neighborhood street - not a highway.  This is off the highway several blocks, a very quiet location, and the beach is truly beautiful there.

Gals what are the chances of seeing whales at this beach.  I have always wanted to see whales and have never seen them in the wild.  One of those bucket list things....LOL>

only if you're lucky. We saw a couple whales when we were there last month.  But there are seals. 

 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

It is the right time of year for them to be migrating...

We saw whales last month from just south of there - at Cape Foulweather.  You usually need to be up on a headland looking out to sea to see them if you are not on the water (in a boat) right next to them.  That day, there were several very close into the shore...within a half mile.  We could probably arrange for a whale watching excursion if there were enough people interested.  (I've never done that either, and it might be fun!  It would probably be a half-day away from the quilting frenzy...lol!)

When we had the retreat in Va Beach we had 5 dolphins playing in front of the house every morning and evening.  It was so neat to watch them.  It isn't usual to see that many and especially not everyday.   It would be really neat to see a whale but I know it is mostly luck.
