Bloggers arrive and meet at CBW's House
Wine and cheese, snacks and beverages for early arrivals
Dinner starting at 6:00

Meet at CBW's house late morning
Caravan to county beaches and court house for a tour of Mathews

Afternoon TBD - either free time or Gwynn's Island Museum

  1. I'm packing up my camper now- come take a look! Can not wait to meet you!!!!

  2. WHAT A BLAST the entire weekend was! Can't wait to see the update here for next year's festivities.

  3. CBW, I will be there sort of on and my mental state! I can't take the heat, passed out cold just this Monday when the vet was here with the horses!
    Probably, an evening would work for me or an eye on the weather! But I will be there to meet everyone, can't wait!
