Since our reservation at the Pocahontas cabin didn’t start until Tuesday, we had the weekend to travel north. We had already made plans to stop by Steve and Linda’s in Poquoson. We had begun clearing their attic of our boating supplies earlier in the fall, and we planned to pick up some larger items on this trip to take them back to Orion Jr at Faith. We had a good visit with them as well and managed to find a place in the truck for the supplies that made sense to take with us – everything from a door from Orion Jr to a 9.8hp outboard.
The next morning, we served up all of the leftovers we could (having sent a healthy amount home with Droz on Monday), and then we said goodbye to Chris and Carolyn, heading south for Jacksonville as they returned to NC.
We had one Group Cabin project task to do while back at the park. A table saw had broken during the 2nd week of the project, and the saw was still under warranty. We had tried to get it repaired before leaving in November, but the receipt was hard to locate. By the time we had returned, the receipt had been located and the return approved. The return this time went smoothly and the warranty was honored.
We were making our way to Jacksonville on a schedule. We had 2 couples planning to stop over at Faith on the 28th as they made their way further south into the Florida Keys. So, we made the trip with just one overnight, arriving a few hours before they both arrived. Dan and Karen were camp hosts during our stay at the park. Tom and Debbie had been Cabin Week volunteers for several years. We had a brief time to welcome them. After they enjoyed the hospitality of the church for a night, they were on their way south again the next am.
We were able to raise a glass to toast the end of 2022 and the start of 2023. We enjoyed putting together this video taking a look back at the year just ended. Hope you enjoy it too.
