Escaping the summer heat, nine Chardonnay Travelers RV’s arrived at Porto Bodega Marina and RV Park, Bodega Bay California. The cool breeze was welcomed by all. Our hosts, the Schippers and Kenyons provided a dinner of yummy homemade stew, salad, bread, and ice cream bars. The evening entertainment was the Alfred Hitchcock movie “The Birds”. It was filmed at Bodega Bay.
Friday morning breakfast was provided by our hosts. Breakfast burritos with a variety of fillings, fruit, and juice was a great way to start the day. Carol Kenyon shared her talents teaching us to decorate wine bags and cards using fabric paints, leaf stamps and wine corks. Much to our surprise they all turned out well and actually looked like grape clusters. In the afternoon many went to visit a goat farm that practices sustainable agriculture. In the evening we had a delicious dinner at an Italian restaurant in Valley Ford.
A chapter meeting started our Saturday. Lunch and the afternoon activities were on our own. The evening meal was a pot luck with our hosts providing barbequed Tri Tip. This was followed by a white elephant auction. Tom Balcer was the auctioneer who attempted to control the energetic bidding. It was so much fun!! One man’s trash is another’s treasure. Sunday morning and the getaway breakfast came too soon. We all look forward to our next outing.
