I was there for a meeting and loved the surroundings and the set up. It was like being near the beach and still like being in the forest. Really enjoyed the peacefulness of the area and would love to return.

I haven't seen them there, or anywhere in the bay much at all, come to think of it. I'm not sure what maritime rules are with those kinds of craft around shipping channels and "boat" traffic. There are kite surfers at... More
