Berner Beach Weekend 2/16-2/19

Come join the fun for a weekend with your dogs at Fernandina Beach, Florida! Everyone is welcome! Jean Coker 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:

- lots of beach walks and picnics

- outing to Kayak Amelia for a picnic and kayak rides

- boat cruise for folks and their dogs

- Berner walk down Centre Street in the heart of beautiful Fernandina (with or without carts)

- and lots of fun communing with Berner friends and our special pups

- cookout at Jean's beach house

We've visited close-by area dog-friendly hotels and collected the following information:
