Everyone dreams of a couple of days on the beach.  The sunshine, sand, waves, and laid back atmosphere create an environment of relaxation and peace.  Elders from five Florida Hometown homes spent two days on the beautiful beaches of Cape San Blas, Florida and they burst that environment of relaxation and peace wide open with the first Amazing Race Retreat.

Elders from The Bridge at Bay St Joe, Signature HealthCARE of North Florida, Signature HealthCARE of Courtyard, Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, and Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center came together at William Rish Park on Cape San Blas and played a two day game of Amazing Race. They created team flags with points awarded for time completed and bonus points for creativity, they built sandcastles for points, they had to hunt down puzzle pieces and put their puzzle together for timed points, and their last event was creating a platform only out of provided materials to transport their team mascot to the water’s edge and back. During the two day event, each team had their created flag and mascot to protect. If either the flag or their mascot were left unattended, another team could kidnap them for ransom points. The team whose flag or mascot was kidnapped had to draw a ransom note and pay the required points to the kidnapping team.
