Mystery Vacation: Day 3

On Tuesday morning at our Mystery Vacation Spot golfers and duffers alike join in harmony to compete in a 9-hole Best Ball tournament. The stakes may be high – a jar of apple butter or a honey bear -- but the sportsmanship and friendship is higher.  Although I often include myself as one of the duffers, today I opted for the cheering section on top of the club house where I watched the golf and worked on the sleeve of my Mermaid Jacket.  After dinner the family gathered for several competitive rounds of croquet.  I’m happy to report that not only did I successfully launch my brother-in-law into the creek, but I also survived the attacks of my siblings and won my round.  Once you throw an excellent apple crisp into the mix it becomes clear that nona had an excellent day.


Coming into the tricky 9th green.


Cut Throat Croquet!

I won't spill the beans on your secret vacation spot, although I am tempted to blackmail you for, say, a pair of socks! We missed you at the beach this year. (Don't tell nona-hubby that the waves were huge and the body surfing fantastic.) Enjoy the rest of your stay in ...

It sounds like much fun is being had! There is nothing quite like a vicious game of croquet!!

I have no idea where you are, but it looks like you're having a great time! Photos of the mermaid jacket, please!

It's not really croquet unless you can send your opponents. Makes the victory that much sweeter!

Wish I was having as much fun.

Would you be at the Feather River Inn in Plumas Co?
