Our airstream club’s Region 3 Rally at Ocean Lakes Family Campground has ended. A few folks pulled out yesterday afternoon, hurrying off to other opportunities, obligations and obsessions. Most of the airstreamers will hitch up this morning and join the big beach exodus through Conway back to points west and north and south.
This period of a rally is one of our favorites — no expectations, no schedule, everything’s done. We’ll watch the parade of departures, wave to friends and acquaintances. Some, we’ll wish we had more time to visit with but can’t fix it today. Next time, old friends.
Until then we can enjoy the memories from this week-long rally. The week has brought new acquaintances and friendships, renewals with old friends, lots of sharing of ideas and experiences. The weather was widely varied with a could of hot days, a couple of cold days, bothersome winds and dead still mornings. We dodged a hailstorm or two — they passed 30 or 40 miles north of our resort — a very good thing.
We’re heading to Kannapolis NC to visit with family there and in Charlotte over the next few weeks before we start for Alaska and other travels following.
