MYA is headed to Canada to the loveliest spot, St. Andrews by the sea, with the most fabulous accommodations at the Algonquin Resort. Adventurers will get in plenty of exploring, hiking, a ghost tour, yoga, yummy food, hot tubbing, pool splashing, and more…
Adventurers will gather on Friday at the resort, arrival time is flexible, and settle into our rooms. We can hit the pool (with waterslide!) and the hot tub to shake off the drive and head off to the sweet little seaside town on historic Water Street to watch the sunset. Perhaps we’ll find some lovely yoga postures to mix into the experience. There’s a quaint stroll along the rocks if the tide is right. MYA will bring along a tasty vegetarian soup for dinner that we’ll enjoy back at the Algonquin.
Saturday will be a big exploration day. So many sites! We’ll head to Indian Point, the sacred grounds of the Passamaquoddy Nation, located at the tip of the peninsula in St. Andrews. Adventurers will get take in marine life in a diverse inter-tidal zone. Nearby is Pagan Point Nature Preserve with coastal spruce forest and salt marsh. After a break for lunch, MYA will provide yummy eats, adventurers will hike Chamcook Mountain, an easy hike with splendid views from the top.
We’ll need some relaxing in the hot tub, poolside yoga, and happy hour at the MYA suite post hiking. As a group we can decide where we’d like to eat dinner, keeping in mind that this meal is not included in the adventure cost. Saturday night, get ready, we’re going to get in on the ghost tour led by a resort staff member, they spin great stories! The Algonquin opened in 1889, there’s plenty of history there and a few spirits as well.
Sunday funday we’re gonna get the tides just right for Ministers Island Trails, a 500 acre island only accessible at low tide. There we’ll explore fields, forest, and shoreline, oh la la! Before heading home, adventurers may want to check out Caughey-Taylor Nature Preserve with some dramatic cliffs on the way to the peak of Chickahominy Mountain.
You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to explore St. Andrews with MYA! Please register as soon as possible, just in case we need to book an extra room or two…
