It was quite fun this weekend at White Point Beach Lodge. We got there about 8:20 pm Friday and left this morning near 11. We came home last night at supper time, as we went to a pot luck party. The boys stayed with Nanny, and by the time we came through Logan was asleep. So he stayed with Nanny all night, and Darren went back out with us. There were different crafts off and on all day and this morning in the games room (where the pool table and arcade games are). We also went in the pool and hot tub yesterday before lunch. We weren't there either night for storytime and marshmallow roast at the fireplace. They also show family movies at 7 and 9 pm. My sister-in-law works there, mostly nights in the bar. We didn't get up to see her because of the boys, but she was working breakfast this morning. Travis was in heaven - our room included breakfast buffet each morning, so he put a good dent in the bacon. They also have a person there to make omelets, so of course he had one each morning as well. Juices, toast, bagels, muffins, different kinds of pastries, dry cereals, pancakes, french toast, beans, scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausages, fruit salad, yogurt, omelets, and more. Plus there's the a la carte menu with the fancy stuff like planked salmon breakfasts, eggs benedict, etc. It is a family-oriented establishment, but still a little posh for me. Of course, being from town we know pretty much everyone who works there. Travis has 3 aunts that work there (we saw two of them), sister-in-law and her mother, cousins, etc. There were a lot of families there from down around Halifax. They have this club thing you can join, but you have to have a family income of $50,000 or more! You can also join the country club or buy day passes, too. I used to have country club membership back in late high school. Me and my best friend, her boyfriend, and another guy used to go out there every weekend and spend hours in the pool and hot tub and in the games room. That whole area remains the same as it was back then. But they did renovate the front desk area recently and build more cottages and outlying buildings. One of the daughters of the man who owns the place married the goalie for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks a couple of years ago this summer. (From Quebec -- Jean Sebastian Something-or-Other, I think.) They got married in town and had the reception at the Lodge, naturally. There were tons of people waiting outside of the church to take their pictures, so they were really good and hung around so everyone could get their picture.
Anyways, after that rambling, nothing got done on the knitting front this weekend. Way too busy. I think I will get the boys jammied and go do some now. I have been planning my Secret Pal's next gift, which I won't elaborate on, just in case she stumbles across this site and the surprise gets ruined. The last gift will be the neatest one. I think she will really like it.
Enough babble for one night. Happy knitting!
