At a recent enthusiastic class, the idea for a weekend getaway painting retreat appeared. Based on a great experience with a hiking group I belong to, I searched VRBO for an appropriate place - not too near, not too far, beautiful and relaxing, good space for a group, good space for painting, good space for sleeping and hanging out. I think Seal Rock House will be perfect. It's in Brinnon, WA on the west shore of Hood Canal. Water view and beach, huge kitchen and dining room, real beds for everyone. All five star reviews.
It's a great location. From the north, come down Whidbey Island to the Keystone Ferry. From Seattle, Etc, come across on the Kingston Ferry. From the South, drive up from Olympia. I like the feeling that I'll be in new territory, but don't have to drive all day.
I'm so looking forward to it. I can't wait to see what you all come up with when you have so much time, all my equipment and odd materials at hand, and so many creative people around! I think you should come!
