Happy Lake Logan Memories

Back in 2008, I was lucky enough to attend a weekend writers retreat at Lake Logan sponsored by WNC Woman magazine. What a fun time it was, and I still think about it often. I was recently going through some photos on my computer, trying to organize them a bit, and came across some from that weekend. 

The early morning view from the back porch of the cabin I stayed in. 

A shot of me, my friend Alessa (r) and her mom Linda.

 Have no idea what this is, but I like it.

 We met all kinds while we were there.

Lavinia Plonka and Sandi Tomlin-Sutker enjoying some canoe time.

And butterflies; the place was swarming with butterflies.

I met a lot of great women writers that weekend, and Alessa took me on my first ever canoe ride. We had workshops galore and some wonderful food (I even got the lodge's recipe for peanut soup...yummy). We worked, we played, we talked, we laughed. I loved it.

Hi! I had to pop in once I saw that you were a writer, cat-lover, and pet-sitter (me, too!) -- caught your comment over on vicki's blog. :-)

This writer's weekend retreat sounds awesome! How wonderful you were able to participate.

Hi Darla. Love your picture by the way. None of my cats will ride on my shoulders like that, and I so tried to get them to.

It was a great weekend, so much fun. I really wish they could do it again, but with the economy the way it is, I reckon it's tough to put that kind of thing together. They had a one day thing in Asheville the year before that was fun as well.
