Shipley Center Trip News & Notes
Oh my! It’s my favorite time of year again! I love the fall; but holy cow .. the months are flying by! I had hoped to do the Mt. Rainier Railroad trip, but they are now gearing the train to families, with a Charlie Brown Halloween theme, and not going to the museum, so I took it off our agenda. I hope that doesn’t disappoint too many of you.
Bus Drivers: We are actively looking for volunteer bus drivers! If you know of someone with a current CDL who might like to donate one day a month driving our bus, please let me know. Our current drivers have busy schedules and it would be wonderful to have one more person available for trips.
I talked to several travelers from the August Whales and Waterfalls trip. They seemed to have a good time! There were 18 on the bus, and several fun pictures were shared with me.
I am still taking reservations for the Victoria Holiday trip. The cost is $385/pp for double occupancy, $493 / single. Some of you have found roommates on day trips you have taken. Often I hear of someone looking for a roomie. Let me know if you are, and we’ll see about getting the two of you together.
In November, we are trying out a new Tea Room in Port Townsend. I have heard good things about it, and who doesn’t LOVE Port Townsend? I’ve planned a trip to the Seattle Art Museum again, this time to see what should be a great exhibit … Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect. We will do a shopping spree to Alderwood Mall, and a holiday trip to Molbak’s Garden + Home and Country Village.
You still have time to get on the Branson/Memphis/Nashville bandwagon in May, 2018! This is a 9-day musical adventure planned through Premier World Discovery. Call me to find out more!
Don’t forget, if you are looking for an international adventure, you can still experience Iceland next year in October. Time is running out!
Call and RESERVE!
See you on the Shipley bus!
