WRS returned to the Tokeland Hotel in Tokeland, Washington on the Willapa Bay for a Seaside Assembly the weekend of November 8, 2019. Here are a few highlights of our visit.
We arrived on Friday afternoon – a few of us stopped for a tea break in Aberdeen at the home of our member Helen.
This is our member Cynthia posing in her new pelisse in Helen’s home.
it’s about another 45 minutes drive to Tokeland from Aberdeen, many arrived in the afternoon, some barely made it in time for the 7 p.m. dinner bell. After dinner we all gathered in the Parlor where our President, Ruth taught us about the history of the Willapa bay and Tokeland.
Ruth laying down the facts!

After the presentation there was time for socializing, playing cards and late night beverages.
Saturday morning was a very wet day. Many members came down to the parlor in their Regency era dishabille.
Michael and Jill relax with their morning coffee as one would at a country house party.
Modest yes! while still dishabille!
You can see the intense concentration of learning to roll that edge!
Following the sewing lesson we had lunch – another feast!
Many chose to stay indoors after lunch and learn the art of writing with a quill
Others attempted to venture out for walks, however it was a very rainy day and we have no photograph of the wet to share.
One more time we changed to our evening finery and responded to the dinner bell
After dinner we had a small raffle drawing then many joined in a Jane Austen themed Murder Mystery
We won’t give away the solution – just in case you find yourself playing such a game one day!
Here are a few more snaps just for fun:
