Hello fellow crampers!
Just a word of two about our fun, fun small gathering along the Cranberry Coast of Central WA last weekend. Traveling south from Whidbey Island, WA, with our 97 Casita
, Simon and I arrived in Grayland Beach State Park on Thursday, Sept 17, where we were soon joined by Barbara Buehler of Manzinita, OR, in her Compact II. It was the 13th Annual Westport to Tokeland 30-Mile Garage Sale. Oh boy!
We enjoyed sunshiny skies the entire weekend, but for one NIGHT of heavy rainfall... dry by 10am! Can't complain.
We garage-saled to our hearts content, finding treasures we simply couldn't live without... at one point we'd collectively spent $27 per mile, so we thought we better slow down before the endeavor set us back thousands!
Pretty soon we were joined by John & Lisa in their Casita
, Paul & Norma in their Scamp
, and Chuck & Vicki (can't recall what they have). We decided to have a little garage-saling competition, creating "Jeapardy-style" categories, such as: History, Literature, Arts, Music, International, Electronics...
Chuck and John took the International Award with a miniature Eiffel Tower and Leaning Tower of Pisa, respectively! John also earned special recognition for the "Useless Piec'a" category with his miniature bale of Texas cotton. I didn't do badly in the Literature category with the "Batboy Lives" book of National Enquirer news articles. Barbara earned "Fashion" with a nice lavendar cordoroy jacket for her mother. Simon snagged a few awards for electronics - don't ask me what they were.
We all enjoyed an impromptu potluck on Saturday night (see pix below).
Fun weekend... highly recommended for a return gig next year.
