WOW...what a great week! I have so much to share and I'm sure I'll leave out something, but I'll try to hit on it all.
I guess the best way is to give a day by day account...
Saturday's arrival is all about set-up...and getting into the "relaxation" mode~
...this campground is one I've been going to since I was a kid. My parents used to leave their camper so we could just go a week or so each month of the summer season...I met lots of people and have MANY memories that return with each visit as an adult.
Sunday's plan was to spend the entire day ON THE BEACH!
...and I DID! Knitting of course!
Monday's plan was to meet up with my BlogBuddy...Anita~
She's everything I expected her to be...we had a great time knitting, spinning and chatting endlessly! I smell a knitting/spinning retreat in the near future so we can spend an entire weekend...knitting, spinning and chatting! I look forward to meeting Anita again and again. Thanks Anita for coming down to meet me! And for those who are looking for some great stitch markers visit her Etsy Shop, she's created some great whimsical designs for me...if you have an idea - ask her she'll create something just for you too!
This is also when we met...
CampKitty! I had it in mind that if he came back I'd bring him home with me but we didn't see him after Wed's naptime with Hubby (though his footprints were around the camper)
Tuesday we ventured out to one of the 2 knitting shops I wanted to visit in the area. Knitting Up A Storm
Last year Hubby and I tried to find this store...to no avail! This time Anita gave me superb directions which made us scratch our heads as to how we could have possible missed it! This store is huge, carrying many varieties of yarn for every type of knitting you may enjoy. Lots of patterns & magazines too! Big table for knitting and classes.
Some of you know I'm on a self-imposed yarn/fiber diet, but I did make a purchase!
and...I did buy this "souvenir"
...I've been told that buying yarn as a souvenir doesn't count on my yarn diet! Hee-Hee!! Yes, that is Kaffe Fassett's Design Line!!!!
Wednesday we found the other NEW knitting shop - Knit-N-Purl this shop is small but BIG on atmosphere and charm!
The owner is truly one of the nicest I've met, her hubby who works there with her has made a place for other husbands who venture out with their wives...rocking chairs & fishing magazines out front! SUPER friendly you literally could sit in there all day and knit. I was invited to their knit night on Thursday night, which I thought I would go to since I would miss our gals at Barnes & Noble back home.
Thursday brought another day of beachcombing & knitting. The plan was to attend Knit Night at Knit-N-Purl, but something pulled me to the beach after dinner...and I'm SO glad that I followed my instincts!
I'm weird...I LOVE bagpipes! This couple from PA serenaded a large group of us. They were amazing! Hubby took a video but he hasn't downloaded it yet.
Friday was simply spending the day on the beach...and I mean ALL DAY! We met a great couple who we chatted endlessly with (and played with their dog).
We fished, played golf, beachcombed, walked a lot, ate lots of GREAT food and I managed to run 3 miles each day...so I could enjoy all the great food, ice cream & spirits!
Tomorrow...that "four letter word" returns (grumble-grumble). I'll leave you with this last shot...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
