Mini Road Trip: Shelton

We joined some great people from the Puget Sound MINI club today for our first-ever MINI event. The group drove to Shelton, for a casino buffet breakfast, then hit the back roads of the south Sound area.

Many Minis Small

Ron mapped out a twisty, windy, beautiful drive. We stopped at two state parks – the below pictures were at Kopachuk & Twanoh State Parks, respectively.

Five Minis Maggie at Twanoh

After the cruise, Bryan and I drove by my sister’s home to visit Maggie-the-MINI’s cousin, Pumpkin the vintage VW convertible. The old-and-new picture is great – Pumpkin is a fun little car.

It was a top-down, beautiful spring day. In spite of my hat and SPF-30 sunscreen, I now have a slight sunglasses sunburn. I look forward to many more events with this group!

    It was a pleasure to meet you and Bryan and to have you join our group for fun with our minis. It was a fun day for sure with the great weather and a nice mini ride along the Sound. We look forward to seeing you at other PSMini events.

    Looks like great fun in the sun! Here we be having a winter storm warning, rain, freezing rain, snow, wind, and general “what the hell happened to spring?” type weather.

    I am green with envy. Green, green, green.

    Don & Becki – we really enjoyed meeting you and the rest of the club. Thanks for wandering by the blog!

    Vince, it snowed 18-24″ in Anchorage (my home away from home) this weekend, so my Alaskan friends will be shoveling out for a while. I’m sympathetic!
