This idea is for the summer of either 2014 or 2015. I know the rent is considerable for a beach house, so the idea is to organize 10 or 12 people for this to share costs. Thought I'd just put the idea out there to see if any CMers are interested. Let me know!
Maybe Allen or Joyce could help us out with ideas....
I am going to the beach at Emerald Island, NC in a week and a half. The cost wasn't tooo bad and divided by several people would be not bad at all. Let me know, I think I would be interested in coming again. And, the earlier you reserve the better the price :-).
Bev, the ponies from Chincoteque Island are on the coast of Maryland, further north. My kids saw them years ago when they were visiting their cousins near D.C.
I don't know about the coast of North Carolina, I would rather visit the coast of S. Carolina, like Myrtle Beach area and Charleston.
My sister goes to the coast of the gulf of Mexico at least once a year; she used to live in Tallahassee Florida so that is her idea of a "beach".
Sorry I can't plan 2014 yet as I am still planning 2013 (and loving it!). We just got back from spending a week on Kauaii; what a fun place to spend a week!! It is 100 times better than any amusement park.
I'm leaving by car the 6th, we are supposed to check into our beach house on the 8th. I don't know how far Penland, is from Havelock?? How long will you be there?
For this summer, the best I can do for a trip is to try to make it to Janet's Calif event.
I'm gratified by the interest! We'll see what happens as time goes on. (First will be CM Phx/Tucson in the Fall!)
