Feb. 6, 2017 hanging around the resort:
Yeah, they talked us into going to the "owner update". We often say, "No" to the "updates", but hadn't been to the one here in awhile so decided to go and get our $50 resort gift card. It was scheduled for this morning. They were suppose to send someone to pick us up---as a courtesy---at 10:30. 10:30 came and went. But she did arrive about 20 'til. She immediately asked why we were doing the "presentation". Told her because the guy with the parking pass told us to. She told us we didn't have to, but by then I was wanting the $50. So we went. Of course it took longer then the hour they promised---but that's no surprise. Signed some paper, again, saying that we reject paying $34,000 to convert our week to Holiday Inn Resorts. They kept showing us what we could have gotten if we hadn't rejected it---to which I said why are you showing us that now? We've been to lots of "owner update" presentation (we own at Wyndham and Worldmark, too) so the hard sales don't bother us too often. This one was no exception. Got our 5 $10 coupons and used them for 2 nights dinners at their on-site sports bar restaurant and some danishes for our ride back to Atlanta. But by the time we were done with this presentation, we just hung around the resort.
There are actually a lot of birds around the resort. Here's another one right outside our back patio---a white ibis.
One of the ponds we passed on the way to the "presentation" had these guys in it, so I talked Ken into fishing for awhile and I went to check them out---hooded mergansers--don't remember seeing them before.
Then it was time to catch the sunset over the lake behind our place, again.
May not have been a very adventurous day today, but it was still great!
