Make "the Neck” part of your Women’s Wellness Weekend

One of my favor parts of planning the Women’s Wellness Weekend, May 1-4, 2014, at Westmoreland State Park is the excursions.

I love the Northern Neck and I love to show it off!

There are so many things to do here on the “Neck” at any given weekend. On May 2nd we will offer three great and very different ways to experience the Northern Neck of Virginia!

Office at Wilna

Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge/Wilna

First learn archery with Gary Bareford from US Fish and Wildlife at the Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge, then have lunch at Historic Menokin where you can see the remnants and archeological artifacts from the home of Francis Lightfoot Lee, in the afternoon paddle the pristine waters of Cat Point Creek with Chief Rangers Sammy Zambon and Laurie Schular.

The second excursion will take you fishing with Captain Billy on the Chesapeake Bay. He will teach you how to fish while telling the stories and the history of the Chesapeake Bay. Just in time for the new film about the Bay click here to see the new movie trailer!

Historic Chrst Chursh

Historic Christ Church

The Tides Inn

The other option is the lower Northern Neck at its best.  Tour Historic Christ Church, lunch at the very famous Tides Inn, then wine tasting and oyster pairing with the owner from the Dog and Oyster Vineyards.
