This week's I Like Thursday will be about my favorite retreat place.
It's close to my home.
I've been coming here for retreats for 20 years.
I take a picture of this snag (dead tree) every visit.
One day it will be on the ground.
I will be sad.
There is always a welcome sign.
I love these Turkens!
I need to add these to my flock.
I discovered this almond butter.
I will be buying lots of this.
My dear friend and table mate, Marian.
I sat staring at the snack table but did not indulge except the almond butter and veggies.
That was the toughest part of the whole retreat!!!
Friendship at meals.
I absolutely love these ladies and our time together!
The chaos that is the sewing room.
With 24 quilters, there is a lot of stuff!
But oh my, the inspiration is fabulous.
The walk up from the kitchen and cabins to the sewing room.
I love all the rail fences.
I love quilts on rail fences.
I love On Ringo Lake by the old steel wagon wheels.
See the cabin in the background.
I just love Royal Ridges Retreat!
I love that I have such a history at this place.
When I was a child, the owners of this property would take us to church
and about once a month, we would come to their home for Sunday dinner.
The adults would adult and the kids would explore this great farm.
When the owners were elderly, they donated a huge section for a church retreat for children.
It became a huge success.
It's fun to see the buses full of retreaters in the summertime.
I know where they are headed and that they are going to have a blast.
