    O.K.,found out yesterday that I won't be laid off but will have a change in my job with a 5% pay reduction.I guess that is better than a poke in the eye.I have also applied with Hospice which is in our hospital system.So for now I am working,thank the Lord!

    Pretty!
    It's only going to sleep 8 unless beds are shared. :cry: And that hasn't been popular in the past.

    My anniversary is October 31st. My DH would be offended if I took off with a bunch of quilters instead of him! :-)

    That's a nice property! I'm okay with sharing a bed but I also have a blow up bed! The biggest challenge is whether they allow extra people.

    At the moment (I think!) I'm only booked for the weekend of Aug 12th, the last two weekends in Sept and the first Sat in Nov. Otherwise, I'm open! With a family the size of mine, things could change at any time! :)

    Carol posted a get together the Sat of Labor Day weekend, anyone going to that?

    The lodge at Silver Creek Falls does quilt retreats. They have small cabins, but a full dining room. And there is Cascade Basketball Camp on the N. Santiam River, and they rent out for quilt groups except during summer bball camp. Greenbaum's Quilt shop in Salem hosts retreats there. Also, we rented a great house in Depot Bay for my DD's wedding. Slept 16 if I recall. I'll dig up the info.

    I plan to go to Carol's on Sept. 3rd IF daughter is not having baby#2. Her due date is Sept 1st, but baby#1 was two weeks early. Other dates I am not available: 1st week of Oct for VEGAS w/best friend! Oct. 15th - Jimena's 1st birthday...and you KNOW Grandma can't miss that!

    The house is so cute! The walk to the beach will keep me healthy! And of course the company will be great. Looking at the schedule its not available until the third weekend in October and the weekends in Oct are good as well as early November. Anthing after the first weekend is too much since our biggest event in November right before thanksgiving. And I'm the one to arrange music, catering, etc for the event!

    I'm trying to go to Carol's but that's another big weekend for us. Will know as it gets closer.

    Thank you Cindy for looking for all of us!

    Hmmm exclusive, us? :)Part of me says yes and part says no!

    There is a place near Rockaway run by Quakers (I think)that I stayed at years ago. They have a lodge setup with bunks and kitchen on the sides and a great room in the middle. If we're going after camp season, there are always lodges at Campfire outfits that might be available. Not at the beach but quiet!

    That sounds interesting. We could still drive to the beach for a stroll? Is it anywhere close?
    There are a couple of places in Seaside too. Ocean View Inn sleeps 15 and Gateway Inn sleeps 15.
    It doesn't say there is a casino near Seaside~might that be a problem? :lol:

    Here is another idea too:
    (Quilters have been there)

    Same place on Craigslist:

    And there is this one:

    Where we stayed last time is 175 a night.The Astoria property is 99 a night both great rates.I need to know how many are interested so we know how big we need.I would say either the last w/e of Oct. or first w/e of Nov.

    last weekend of Oct I could probably swing but not the first of Nov!

    I really like the last property that Alice posted! We could have lots of fun with the wildlife! :)

    Either date looks OK at this point.

    WOW, loved the Surf Pines in Gearhart! But kinda spendy.
    My BFF's husband is the GM of the Riverside Suites in Seaside. I always can get a free room there! But not sure if they have larger units. I'll ask her.

    So here's the place we rented for DD's wedding @ Depot Bay.
    Sleeps 16, is $399/nite, and is a 2 nite minimum.

    It is adjacent to the Surfrider Resort and Restaurant. Click on 'Beach House' tab below the Rooms & Rates for a video.
