At the end of the day on July 4th, we held a drawing for a basket of River Bar Soaps. We asked a young guy who was walking by if he would be so kind as to draw the winning ticket. He sheepishly consented, was rewarded with a little bar of soap, and then queried, “What’s this?” Funny!
I left a phone message for the winner and Friday she called back to claim her prize. She and her family were camping in the area and would come by the house to pick up her soaps and lotion bar. They were delightful people who didn’t seem to mind that we took advantage of a photo op! We shared a few sights and activities they might want to take in while they were in Del Norte County and we felt like we’d made some new friends. Here are Debbie and I with the basket–she seemed happy to receive it and I really enjoyed meeting her!
