Rose Planting -- "I Love Lucy" Weekend!

Slept in (heaven!).

Got up and got ready and packed the car. We wanted to leave for the beach house directly after the Rose Planting.

Bad traffic heading there, but we were right on time! Nice ceremony at Brett's house.

Then drove to the beach -- hit bad traffic near Seaside!

Carla and Gary arrived shortly after we got here, bringing our ROSE! We've wanted it ever since we moved in five years ago. Then Gary installed it on our front porch!

Isn't it beautiful?

Then Patty arrived! She's so smart about "I Love Lucy"!!! Carla is, too, actually.

Here's the whole gang (minus me).
Patty, Carla, Gary and Marilyn!

We went out for dinner at the Shilo Inn, having margaritas and loads of food. Great fun! The view is amazing and the food was very good!

Then back to the house for trivia! Lots more fun!

And lots of chatting and visiting with our friends. Such dear people!

We're thinking breakfast out in the morning.

I don't know how long we'll stay after that. We plan to head back to Portland tomorrow.

We've certainly enjoyed our vacation. Wonderful!

Sweet dreams, everyone!
