The second annual Women Only Weekend in Cannon Beach (November 12-14, 2010) was a ton of fun!  Special thanks to the Sea Ranch Resort for the use of their beautiful Sundance Event Lodge for 3 yoga classes.  And as you can see, we really enjoyed the great music from the beautiful and talented Mary Kadderly, thanks to Lush Wine Bar and Found.  I look forward to next year's festivities of yoga, shopping, wine, chocolate and music!
