When the Corona Virus swept the globe - we at Sanctuary had to question what we were doing, and how we were doing it. And, while we continue to move forward preparing our property to build our dream, we "pivoted" like so many other businesses, and began to offer programming every Tuesday night - challenging topics like mental health and racism, lighter topics like
Pet Photo Contests, as well as favorite regulars
like our author interviews and monthly book club. We're proud to close 2020 with 35 fabulous episodes documented in our Sanctuary Online.live YouTube Channel.
When a Global Pandemic kept us from camping south of Hot Springs Arkansas this summer, we "merged" with our Sanctuary Online.live community - and we "camped" online!
And while we'd have loved to all be together, we made the best of things and sang camp songs, shared photos and stories of family camping trips, and really had quite a great time! Aug 18-20, 2020. Recordings of our unusual first Sanctuary onthe Road camping trip can be found on our Sanctuary Online.live YouTube Channel
Our first venture into "expanding the brand" of Sanctuary, and moving our community from a local Austin core to a more virtual reality, was through our 2018 Cruise - to the Eastern Caribbean.
So successful, we immediately booked our second cruise to the western ports of this paradise - and began to plan for a 2021 Cruise to Alaska. And, as the world has changed, our plans while not cancelled, have been "put on hold" until we're sure Sanctuary @ Sea will sail safely, soon!
Join us! We're not sure when it's going to happen - but if the success of our 2018 and 2019 cruises have shown us anything - it's that we WILL cruise to Alaska - once it's completely safe to do so! #Sanctary@Sea-AK!
