I’m not sure if it can get any cuter than this!  I love everything about it!  The design is fabulous and so are the colors!  Carol Hill hand painted this super sweet vintage trailer herself, what do you think?

Early morning, before all the sleepy heads are up and glamping their trailers.

I caught these flamingos, early one morning, outstanding in the field….grazing between trailers.

It didn’t take long for us all to bond.  Here we are getting ready for a lovely seafood lunch.

The weather was a bit unpredictable at first but we saw little rain, most of it was in the evening or at night.  We had glorious sunshine everyday!  I even got a bit of sunburn.

I had to share some of our activities, of which, their were many.  Here I am preparing to mount a horse for the first time since the sixties.  Yes, some of you may remember that I did Saddle Camp last year.  But I rode a mule and Charlie was a super sweetheart!  Thanks, Charlie, for keeping me on the straight and narrow!  Love you.  However, I know one mounts them the same, I was still a bit nervous.

And here are some of my sisters ready to go.


I will try and get a little post ready for tomorrow morning, just before I head off to Seattle for my Mom’s birthday celebration.










  1. I dont know how anyone could have a bad day weather wise with all the fun you gals have to keep the mood light. I bet being around those gals is like medicine to the soul. AND the added gift is seeing all those campers and all of GOD's creations.

    Hope you had a good ride!

    1. You have no idea what it means to is incredible and I grow so much each time I am with them! It just brings tears to my's one of the best things that has ever happened to me.

  2. Oh! Horse back riding! I think I'm gonna cry! I'm so happy you ladies are having such a wonderful time. You deserve it! ♥

  3. How could it get any better than this? Every time I see pictures of all the fun you have, it makes me want to go out and buy myself a vintage trailer, lol. Happy trails to you.

  4. I thoroughly enjoy seeing the pictures of your get togethers; not only the trailers but the surroundings too. Keep on having fun, and keep sharing!

  5. Oh Karen....I know I say it all the time...but you don't have any idea how much I would LOVE to be a part of something like this. So I will live vicariously through you. What a thrill. What fun!
