Beach retreat - group pictures

Just got some new pics via email from my friend Sue. Much better than those I took! The first picture was taken Sunday morning just before leaving. Note the beautiful blue sky which was with us for a good deal of the weekend. From left to right: me, Liz, Lanny, Kathi, Peggy, Kim and Sue. We sure hated to leave when the weather was so beautiful. This was taken right in front of the house - didn't we have a marvelous view! That's Haystack Rock you see in the background - the landmark of Cannon Beach. Peggy's husband arrived early Sunday morning to pick her up as they were heading to a bridge retreat on the coast at Newport, so he consented to be our photographer. Thanks Al!

Sue took the second picture from the balcony on Saturday night. From left to right: Liz, me, Lanny, Peggy, Kathi, and Kim. We'd had a big lunch at a nice bayside restaurant in Wheeler, a little town a little over 20 miles south of Cannon Beach so we didn't want much dinner. (There is a very funky quilt shop there that we visited on Saturday.) We had pizza delivered Saturday night - yum! We sat around munching pizza - and lots of candy as you can see on the table - doing handwork, and watching episode after episode of HGTV's "Divine Design" that Kim had recorded and brought along.

Quilting retreats with good friends are simply the best!
