Please note: Dog owners – yes, you can bring your furry friend. Sadly, they are not permitted to stay in-room without you and we respectfully request they not be at the workshop (we need to be sensitive to allergies, etc). Last year, dog owners did a great job of co-oping with spouses and partners to give the pups a great day on the beach. Thank you for understanding!
