Lakeside 2014 ~

Another wonderful Lakeside, Ohio, hooking retreat is over all too soon.  Oh, what fun we had.  I don't think I've ever eaten, laughed or hooked so much.  Time spent with friends ~ new and old.
Here's the house we once again stayed in.  It is directly across from the pier.  Sleeping accommodations for twenty one!

Hooking is messy business.  It also makes one thirsty.

Group shots were taken at two different times.  Some people are in both.  At least one hooker had already left.

Val taking pictures of the group.  Not the phones resting on her foot.

Our hostess with the mostest Katie thanking Someone above for our perfect weather.  Her invaluable helper, sister Laura.

On the east side of the pier where the waves hit was this foam.  I remember it being there last year, too.

It reminded me and Sheila of toasted marshmallows on hot chocolate.  
The sun setting over Lake Erie.

I didn't take as many pics as I should have, but I do have more to share.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Yup, we sure do get thirsty at rug camps, tee hee.

I'm slowly getting to know your group. I know you, Deb, Susan and Katie. Such a small world it is with rug hookers. When I first started I knew no other hookers. Now I've friends throughout the US and outside the US. Can't have enough friends.

The house looks like the perfect spot to have a hook-in.

It is not often when you see a lake that seems to have no end. I LOVE the ocean, and this reminded me of it. What a pretty place!!! I am glad you had a good get together.
