The rest started showing up at Thursday afternoon at the Beach house “Playn Hooky” to set up sleeping arrangements and do some basic organizing. By Friday afternoon, all the beds were filled, as well as the couches and recliner.
The original plan was to go over to Stingeree for dinner Thursday and Friday night. That turned out to be too hard to do.
