  4. I can hardly imagine exactly what this means……but anything involving the ocean is a total win! 🙂

  13. It sounds very exciting! Maybe it’s a way to keep all members together. I sometimes feel a little left out living ‘downunder’.

  14. I love the beach, painted toe nails, girlfriend time…

  17. Oh boy…..a retreat? No, a conference? Ok, maybe a grand prize of a guest stay at the beach?
    Or could it be….we’re going to do some WEBINAR events?
    Garsh! I don’t know.
