Breathe in. Breathe out. Ahh! Salty air! Once Spring has arrived, don’t the words “Nantucket Sound” and “Cape Cod” sound absolutely lovely?? Join in relaxing walks along the beach and along quaint garden paths (oh! the crocuses!), several optional planned activities, excursions, yoga, meditations, chatting, socializing, kite-flying, fun and laughs, singing and worshiping together.
Held at the lovely grounds of Craigville Retreat Center at Craigville Beach on Cape Cod, where floral paths wind past quiet lakes and overlook the beach. A walk down a flight of stairs at the edge of the property will bring you directly across from the beach. See Craigville’s website and their Facebook page for more information
We will car-pool together on Friday as best we can in order to arrive at Craigville by about 4pm (though some arrive solo and on different days/times due to individual needs). We depart back to Melrose after our Sunday worship service. Okay, so maybe we don’t go directly back – many stop off for lunch to prolong the weekend. Just think: you don’t have to cook all weekend!!! And some of us are surprised on Sunday evening when dinner isn’t simply just ready and waiting for us 🙂
