Donkey Found in Garden By the Sea

October 21, 2020

OCEAN SHORES, WA — The donkey caused no damage, so just calm down.

1:00 PM, Saturday, October 17th, Samantha Williams led five Girl Scout youths through the gate at Garden By the Sea (GBTS), to assist Terri Wilson and Susie Robinson with the winterizing of the eight 4-foot by 10-foot raised Ocean Shores Food Bank garden beds.

The girls received their assignments and off to work they went, whistling and laughing all the way.

They pulled weeds, cut beans, and cut the expired lettuce plants, while leaving roots to decay below the soil, an experiment this winter, on the advise of Mary Fulton, Master Gardner, who was also present for the work party, along with Karen Young, president of GBTS.

 

Then young ladies placed straw on top of all beds that were finished producing for the season.

And now, about that donkey…

With the work out of the way, the real fun began.

Susie had found an old pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey game. None of the girls had EVER played, and it was a huge hit!

They played several games, all the while consuming cider, apples, and kettle corn.

At 3:45pm, all departed (including the donkey) and quiet returned, once more, to the beautiful Garden By The Sea.
