      I just found out from one of our LSS that there is a B&B here on Vancouver Island in Qualicum Beach that caters to crafters, groups up to 12 people. Here's the link to the website if anyone is interested in having a peek. http://www.wyldflower.ca I wonder if we have enough people on this side of North America that we could do something like Camp Swirlydoos here?

      My MIL lives really close to there in Parksville… unfortunately I am about 14 hours away (by car).

        That looks lovely. I've often thought how fun it would be to have a retreat!

          Parksville and Qualicum are right next door to one another. You could always talk your dh into a family vacation to visit them and then sneak away for a couple of days!

            Shell where are you and Angelica located? Rae are you in Colarado?

            #212106

            I live in Cloverdale, and I think Angelica is just south of Seattle.
            and Rae is a neighbourhood away from Krissy ;)

            Ang is clear across the state from Seattle; she lives in Walla Walla. I'm in Yakima, which is roghly midway between her and Seattle.

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                Oh this would be so much fun to organize. I know other than 1 or two spots available this month (June) there really isn't a whole lot of spots available until Sept '13 when she starts back up again. But if enough of you are interested I am more than happy to organize it from this end

                So any of you in the Washington area, you could always do the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria and then the drive to Qualicum is about 2 hours. Shell you could even catch the ferry in Tsawwassen to Nanaimo and Qualicum is like 20 minutes from Duke Point in Nanaimo where the ferry comes in. This would be so much fun to do! Even the Fall can be nice here on the Island.

                  Even Vicky & Linda who are near Calgary, Alberta could fly WestJet airlines to Comox, BC and I could pick them up to drive down to Qualicum

                    This looks like a dream. Steph, I hope you can organize a mini camp, they're so much fun and it's wonderful being with fellow Savages in person. Fingers crossed that you can do this!

                        Yes, you need a passport. I need to get one at some point.
