All good things come to an end — and so it is with our rally. The last morning is always a hit with the women — the men cook hitchup breakfast for us.
And of course breakfast wouldn’t be complete without the Wait Staff.
Once breakfast was over we raffled off the leftover food, took down the flags and the tarps, packed up the stove and put everything away til next year. (Special thanks to Kay & Tony who store our stuff at their place in Mesa.) We sang our goodbye songs (sure missed your leadership, Jean) and hugged goodbyes to those who were leaving today.
Quite a few of us are staying over for one or two more days. Seems like we just don’t want to leave. Some enjoyed down time today and did nothing but sit in the shade. Others went shopping or visiting.
This evening we had a potluck of “must-goes” from the fridge. Diane made a fruit crumble in her solar oven, Ruthann & Keith made fruit smoothies in the blender, Gloria and Dave made meatloaf from her mother’s recipe. There were fresh salads from the farmers’ market. And more. We dined well. 🙂
Thanks to our special VCRs (Volunteer Club Representatives) Liz & Roger.
And our heartfelt thanks to our hosts. You did a wonderful job — the week was full of fun and friendship (and food, of course). One for the memory bank.
Safe travels everyone — hope to see you all back here next year!
