Cold, wet, and gray are words that most commonly come to mind when describing winter in the Northwest. Okay, it can also be quite beautiful and we have world class skiing in our backyard but that doesn’t help me make my point at the moment. We don’t get very many sunny and dry winter days around here and when they come, you have to make the most of them.
A few days ago, the Social Chair of our local PCA chapter (PNWR), looked at the forecast and decided to pull together a last minute event. Just a small Cars and Coffee gathering at a parking lot in Woodinville, WA. I cleared the morning schedule and decided to make the drive over to join what I thought would be a small group of friends. Wow…we must have had 80+ cars in total and everyone was ready to shake off cabin fever, talk cars, eat donuts and of course, drink coffee. These in-person social events have become even more important given how much isolation people have endured over the last few years. See…cars are a cure-all for everything…even a pandemic!
I left early in the morning to make the hour drive but still had time to stop for a quick sunrise photo on Alki:
It’s not just the cars…it’s the people. That’s the motto of our club and events like this bring it to life. It was so much fun to spend a few hours catching up with old friends and making new ones.
Dogs are always a welcome addition to any C&C and there were a few cute ones running around today:
Okay…it’s also about the cars and there were a ton of beauties in attendance this morning. My white Spyder is parked right next to a stunning Spyder in Chalk although with the harsh sunlight…you can hardly tell them apart!
It was a fantastic event and a total surprise given the arctic weather and downpours we’ve been experiencing the last few weeks. I can only hope we get a lot more weekend weather like this all winter!
