TUNES IN THE DUNES GRAND FINALE – SEPTEMBER 16-18, 2022:
COME MAKE HAPPY MUSIC WITH US in one of the most beautiful places in the world! We invite you to join us as we create a musical community surrounded by this wild and beautiful coastline. We will strum and sing through sunny days and starry nights next to crackling beach bonfires. Over the weekend you will improve your ukulele skills and expand your musical universe.
ACCOMMODATIONS: American Camp style cabins: Westwind’s cabins are set in coastal forests surrounding the lodge, many with views of the ocean and beaches. They are all heated, well lit, and sleep two to five adults. Please let us know if you would like to reserve a cabin with your friends. There is also the option of large canvas tents in the dune area north of the lodge, or bring your own tent to pitch in the shore pine forest. We are happy to help with any of your mobility and special sleeping needs, contact Melany Berry. (Please see site maps and further photos at www.westwind.org)
MEALS: Our healthy cuisine will reflect what is seasonal to our local coastal area. Farmers in our food-shed are already planting veggies and fishermen will be providing us with special, fresh catches from our local waters! We place a special emphasis on extraordinarily delicious and sustainable foods.
We will be able to meet your special diet needs, please send your requests to Melany Berry.
