Everyone is welcome to share…paint, build, rake, tend the fires, cook, organize and celebrate our wonderful community! For our 29th annual Ship Shape Weekend…we’re changing it up and expanding our plans to fill a whole week.  If time is tight, just… Read More

The best piece of advice I heard in 2022, while working in the studio, was from the 10% Happier Podcast: Stop and recognize happy moments when you’re in the middle of them. Literally stop and say out loud, “This is a happy time.” It’s a way to ground yourself in the joyful parts of your life. I love this! How many times have I muttered myself, “grrrrr” (or worse but why share?)… Read More

by Terri Malloy My name is Terri Malloy,  I’ve been a full-time RVer and workamper for over 8 years. For those of you that don’t know what a workamper is, it’s someone that lives self contained and travels to different places trading a space to live for either volunteer hours or space plus paid hours or some combination of the two.

I can’t believe how long it’s been since I visited our poor neglected blog…I’m making a new pledge to give it more attention as life settles into a more “normal” rhythm.

Our little bubble of a world has been relaxed… Read More

Now’s the time when the reservations start flooding our world…the sun is shining, the tents and RV’s are begging to be opened up and aired out.  In the Spring, most of my morning and evening work hours are spent in front of the computer, answering e-mails, returning phone calls and booking sites.   This is my 23rd summer of this responsibility and I take it as seriously now as I did before… Read More

The roads are soft, the air is soft, the plants are greening and the flock is begging to graze in the campground…The days are getting longer and we’ve finally been able to spend more time outside…and we’ve noticed:

December always seems to be a blur because of holiday decorations, parties and the inevitable bumpy shifting of gears from closing the campground to being closed. By the second week of January we’re rested, filled with happy memories and fueled to begin planning for the summer season to come…impatiently caught between enjoying our icy imprisonment (the road into the campground thawed from its slick icy state just last night) and projecting our thoughts towards… Read More

Our first two Artist Retreat cabins were had their inaugural occupants this week…wonderful people who have launched these little cabins with the best possible mojo… The cabins are set under the pines near the gardens and the art studio.  They sleep one or two people in a loft bed and rent for $80/night.

The bride was beautiful, the weather was perfect and the groom was a magical prince who made everything memorable with his charm. A wedding on a campground beach is a casual affair that lends its own flavor…irreplicable in a traditional setting.
