What an amazing event this past weekend at Sebastian Inlet State Park. The WITO (Women in the Outdoors) ladies there sure know how to show someone a good time!
I could write pages about all the fun stuff we did but that would only take away from the excitement, for those that read my blog.
So to recap….for the very small fee of $55 per person everyone walked away with door prizes, all our meals were provided and the food was great, and we got some great instruction!
I cannot write this and not thank the many volunteer instructors that gave of their time and materials to make this event possible. So many workshops were offered! Our choices included Ocean Kayaking, Fly and Surf Fishing, See Doo, Outdoor Cooking and Photography, Jewelry Making, Person Protection, Geo-Caching, Cast-netting and more! The camaraderie was a joy in itself. This event had 114 women and their daughters attend. There were women from all over Florida that drove in just to attend this workshop, that alone states how wonderful these workshops are!
About the location… All I can say is “wow”, what a beautiful park they have there at Melbourne Beach. We spent the morning waiting dolphin and manatee play in the surf. Sea birds everywhere! There were lots of flowers growing wild in the dunes. Friday night we saw a sea turtle camp on shore to nest. The full moon glowed beautifully over the calm sea as we dozed off listening to the waves hit the shore. What a great Mother’s Day gift! Many new friends were made on this trip and I was asked to work on doing an event in Tampa.
I am up for the challenge and I have already started forming a committee. Anyone wishing to work on the event with me please contact me at Not a Clue Adventures and you will get to see first hand what all the excitement is really about! You will get to meet some great women and learn some fun activities while you are at it!
