Day 2: Thursday, April 24, 2014
We awoke to a gorgeous spring day and coffee with friends. The agenda was full as we had 56 trailers arriving throughout the day. The energy level was high as more and more folks filtered in. Everything went smoothly and there were lots of folks sitting down for a break in setting up to enjoy the procession of vintage trailers arriving.
Approximately 6pm we gathered our picnic supplies and headed to the beach. We chatted and laughed during the ¼ mile walk to the beach and got set up. People filtered in for a while and we enjoyed amazing food and laughter. The sunset was breathtaking as was the breeze that kept the bugs at bay.
One of our favorite items was provided by Jennifer Megliore…cookie dough dip! Here’s the recipe. (calories consumed while camping do not count)
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese
½ cup butter
¾ cup powdered sugar
2 tblsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup (6 oz) mini semi sweet chocolate chips.
In a small bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add sugars and vanilla then beat til smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Serve with graham cracker sticks (yield – 2 cups)
