My husband can walk, but does have mobility problem and he is concerned about standing for 90 min. Will there be anywhere he could sit while I gather shells?
Coming to visit in early May will there be tours? and I sent for a monster coupon book do you advertise in there? cost?
Do you have any tours the week of October 22 thru the 29th. I really want to do this tour and that is the only week we can get in the condo in Garden City. We come down every year but it's usually in September. My family went on the tour this year and told me how awesome it was..that was the first time I had heard about it. Hoping to hear from you soon.
