It was a nice weekend at the beach and I forgot my bathing suit! On Saturday Beverly Stevens and I drove to Ferry Beach for a banquet and program. It was sunny and the tide was way out. The beach was empty of activity with only a few people around. It was definitely too cold and windy to walk as I usually do. Many old friends and people I have worked with were there. It was a large, noisy and cheerful crowd. After a nice dinner all sang old-time familiar songs mixed with stories of days gone by.
This was the last meal in the old dining room. A new dining hall and kitchen are being built and readied to hopefully open in May. Many stayed overnight in the dormitories. Beverly and I shared a room and slept well in our sleeping bags in a room without heat. A bountiful breakfast was served at eight. I estimated about half of the guests slept over. We said our goodbyes and reached home about 10:30 after having a lovely time.

Muffin was happy to greet me. She even had some canned cat food left in her dish. She was not the “pig” I expected her to be.
