OCMD Retreat

Here's a teaser of what we do when we go on The Lankford Hotel/Salty Yarns Semi-Annual Retreat......

Not much stitching to be shown because I want to share some of the other things we enjoy when we stay at the Lankford.
Our shopping bags lined up like dutiful little soldiers just waiting
for us to drop in a must have goodie during the weekend.
A favorite stitching spot for one and all.
These are the "left-overs" from our Friday night Wine and Hors d'oeuvres
that Sara and Mary put back out on Saturday night.
There are other refreshments to be had.

Some of us were ~forced~ to go to the Captain's Galley for lunch/dinner.
Crab bisque!    Not a drop left.   Yummo!
Two seconds after this shot - these feet retreated from the cold, cold Atlantic Ocean.

Heading back to the rocking chairs for more stitching time.
Saturday night, Sara taught us to Arm Knit.   We were all very attentive and amazed at the 30-minutes start to finish scarf.  Sara has an eye for combining colors and textures.  How cool was this!
Several knitters went into Salty Yarns for yarn the next morning.
Kite Festival Weekend
Salt Caramels, Dark Chocolate Mint Truffles and other goodies to be had.
The wonderful Ocean City Boardwalk.   What a great place to
take your daily walk.

All this and there was some stitching too.
Wonder what fabulous piece Kathy R. is working on.
Francine and Carol chat it up.
Evelyn G. is deep in concentration.
If you haven't joined us before, you need to really consider making the trip next fall.   It is a great time with fellow stitchers, the price is reasonable, the venue is fabulous, the fellowship is great, the welcome we receive is beyond compare.  All combine to make this a rejuvenating retreat.  One trip and you will be hooked.
