March 5th, Sunday from 10 am - 2 pm We’ve rented the Bandstand at Piedmont Park. (http://www.piedmontpark.org/do/picnic.html) Everyone is welcome to attend!
Love that sand between my paws.......especially at Fernandina!!
Jean C. has graciously offered her beach house again as BMD weekend headquarters and it's a stone's throw from the sandy beauty of dog-friendly Fernandina Beach.
Some of the activities we are thinking of are:
We've visited close-by area dog-friendly hotels and collected the following information: Days Inn and Suites Fernandina Beach, 2707 Sadler Road, Fernandina Beach, FL. 32034, (904) 277-2300 Daysinn.com 2 dogs per room with a one-time $25 fee, so you could share a room with a friend if you each only have one dog. (If we have 10 rooms there, we can negotiate a block for a cheaper rate)
Amelia Island Hampton Inn, 2549 Sadler Road, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034, (904) 321-1111 www.ameliaislandhamptoninn.com - 2 dogs per room preferred
Seaside Amelia Inn, 2900 Atlantic Avenue, Amelia Island, FL 32034 (904) 206-5300 www.seasideameliainn.com
Includes breakfast, king/queen suite with pull out sofa suite, on the water
Please make your reservations soon to make sure you have a room reserved, and calendar the cancellation date, in the event your schedule changes and you find you are not able to attend.
We haven't checked vrbo.com to see about dog-friendly rentals nearby. Jean's beach address is 1741 N. Fletcher Ave, Fernandina Beach, FL 32034. The beach house has a fenced yard, so doggies can enjoy time outside or up on the decks.
PLEASE let us know by February 30th if you are planning to come. But the sooner you let us know, the more fun plans we can make for the weekend.
If you have any questions or if you want to suggest any activities, ideas or requests for meals or doggie activities, please email me at Lisa.email@example.com, or call me at 404-664-6963.
A Hiking We Will Go!!!
We would like to schedule a group hike with our doggies each month with members rotating the suggestions for places around the Atlanta area!
The hikes would take place on a Saturday or Sunday. A great resource to get some ideas is http://www.alltrails.com
