The Oak Island Retreat...Oh, Yes!!!!

A quilting retreat at Muggs' Oak Island place...heaven.
Seven friends and 5 machines...one knitter and one lover. 99 year old Margaret!!!
Here they are:  Margaret and Muggs, shuckin' the corn, while the rest of us sew.
The South port ferry..a thrilling 30 minute ride to Wilmington, from Oak Island
The Sand shark...and me...love at first sight!!
Everyone kept catching these instead of the big ones. lol
Better catch them now before they get bigger.
Celebrating Jean's big birthday...Jean is a miracle..We love you Jean!
Marie's sampler in the works...
See the children in the border...clever Marie

Do you know how exhausting having fun is????

I love your photos! and I'm chuckling about your last line ~ ~ Yes, I do know how exhausting "fun" can be ~ ~ I always return home from a retreat and take a good long nap :):) But it's a goooood nap. So glad for you to have such a good time in such a great place and good people.

It does indeed look like heaven!
I love your Muggs for sharing her place with all of you. And I am delighted you are exhausted from having fun.
I'm eager to see what you did -- even if it was just napping & chatting & snacking.
