For the first time in several years, we were in the area when Menno planned for their Retreat Weekend at Camp Camrec. After a bit of arm twisting we agreed we would come up to camp for the weekend, but would stay in Leavenworth at a motel.
Last night I got a call from Earl, a late 80s widower from our congregation, wanting to know if he could ride up with us. He's a fun guy and we said sure. Forry did some re-arranging so that we could put one of the back seats up and have room. We picked Earl up at a friend's house in Ritzville and headed up to Leavenworth.
We met up with a group of Menno folks at The Soup Cellar in Leavenworth for dinner. From there we all headed over to Coldstone Creamery for dessert. We took Earl on up to Camp with his gear, then went back to the Howard Johnson in Leavenworth for the night.
It was our pleasure to find that the motel has RootSports NW on their televisions do that we could settle in and watch the Mariners game.
