2011 Amelia Island High Tide Women's Weekend AnnouncedAmelia Island, FL – The second annual High Tide Women’s Weekend, scheduled September 23-25, is a series of events and activities for and about women. Hampton Inn and Suites in historic Fernandina Beach will be the host hotel and headquarters for the annual women’s weekend. Official ticket outlets are Red Otter Outfitter on Atlantic Avenue and their new shop at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Shops. Tickets will be available after July 15th.

This year’s High Tide Women’s Weekend will focus on Amelia and our surrounding islands’ natural beauty. On Friday September 23, in collaboration with the National Park Conservation Association (NPCA), the nation’s leading voice for National Parks, a unique trip to Cumberland Island National Seashore will be offered. Leaving Fernandina Beach by boat, the group will explore Dungeness and the Ice House Museum followed by lunch and a tour of the Greyfield Inn. The final stop will be the beautiful Plum Orchard mansion before returning to Fernandina Beach. Tickets are limited for this first time offering.

Emily A. Jones, Senior Program Manager for the National Parks Conservation Association, shared, “Amelia Island is surrounded National Parks. Cumberland Island National Seashore and Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve offer incredible natural beauty and fascinating stories. We are excited to work with High Tide Women’s Weekend to bring some very special programs to the amazing women of Amelia Island and those who will discover the island, by attending these activities September 23 and 24.”

Saturday’s activities will include yoga on the beach, chocolate camp, a cooking class, beading class, a unique kayak trip and horseback riding on the beach.

A ticketed lunch will be held at the Florida House Inn and will featured Theresa Pierno, the National Park Conservancy Association Executive Vice President who will challenge women to get involved in protecting America’s Great Waters. NPCA recognizes that the health of our national parks is directly linked to the health of the waters that surround them. Parks, once viewed as isolated and remote, are increasingly becoming threatened by activities occurring in their watersheds.

Saturday night is the traditional girls-just-gotta-have-fun river cruise. Theme – “Key North – Fernandinaville”.

“Our first year was a great success. We had girl friends, mothers and daughters and sisters all joining in the fun”, shared Dickie Anderson, High Tide Women’s Weekend founder.

High Tide Women’s Weekend, scheduled each fall on Amelia Island, is a series of events for and about women. For more information contact Dickie Anderson at dickie.anderson@gmail.com.
