According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary spring fever is a listless, lazy, or restless feeling commonly associated with the beginning of spring. Over the past several weeks, I’m finding myself daydreaming about warmer climates and the upcoming spring season in Virginia. This anticipation of blooming flowers and temperatures above 60 degrees was shattered when I learned Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and we were told to look forward to six more weeks of winter! I’ve decided to take a different approach to this situation and look at it as only SIX MORE WEEKS TIL SPRING! I’m ready for spring fever and all the silliness that goes along with it.
I’m also ready for the upcoming Fairy Stone State Park in Stuart. This weekend is a perfect opportunity for women of all ages to treat themselves to a weekend of pampering and fun activities. Fairy Stone is a picturesque setting where you can unwind and regain balance in your life. For the entire weekend, a wide variety of workshops, programs and outdoor activities will be offered. The only decision you’re need to make is what programs to attend. Participants will enjoy choosing between hiking, fly fishing, canoeing, yoga, aroma therapy, searching for fairy stones and outdoor photography just to name a few. But don’t worry, there will be lots of time to socialize, relax and have fun.
The weekend begins on Friday, April 23rd with registration at 3 p.m. and ends Sunday, April 25th at noon. And it’s affordable. The commuter program is $149 and includes dinner on Friday, three meals Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. The full package includes meals plus two nights lodging and ranges in price from $180 to $332 depending on cabin size and the number of people in a cabin. You can also bring your RV or camp in the campground. So call your girlfriends and make your reservations today. Cabins go quickly!
If you are unable to attend this session, don’t worry the next Women’s Wellness Weekend will be held at Bear Creek Lake State Park the weekend of October 15th – 17th, 2010.
