A night at the Ridge

Here at Oakridge we have wonderful, centrally located RV sites. We’re on the ‘edge’ of the camp, but close to all the areas where we’ve been working.

We’re so centrally located, in fact, that we literally surround their main campfire. This is the view from my kitchen window-

During the week, this is no problem. In fact, it’s available for us to have our own campfire should we wish. It’s true that during the weekends that campfire gets more action, but all in all it’s not been a big deal. This past weekend, though, the camp was expecting an exceptionally large group that was going to be using the fire pit on Saturday night and they were concerned that we might be a bit more inconvenienced. (Not to mention that sometimes being surrounded by RV’s might put a damper on some of the campfire attendees.) Our hosts generously offered their B&B, The Ridge, to us for the night (or two, they said!).

The Ridge was a new purchase when we were here 18 months ago, and we girls even helped with some of the early renovations.

(It’s not often we leave a job looking worse than when we started, so it was wonderful to return this time to see it in all of its beautiful and elegant finished state. Just in the short time we’ve been here it’s been used for two weddings!)
We decided to make the most of the opportunity and worked together to make a delicious steak dinner,

and then retired, each of us to our own fancy rooms, complete with private baths.

We woke to a lovely morning view,

gathered up our ‘stuff’, and returned to our own little 300 square foot homes.

Thank you, Oakridge family, for opening The Ridge to us and blessing us with a lovely little getaway!

…so when’s the next campfire? 😉
