Grande Dunes Ocean Club

The issue of whether or not to buy a timeshare at Marriott Vacation Club has finally been put to rest. I have instead bought a membership at the Grande Dunes Ocean Club in Myrtle Beach. It is actually next to the Marriott properties and has a great pool right by the beach. With waitress cocktail service poolside and a great restaurant for lunch or dinner it was the perfect place for me. We will also be able to attend lots of social functions including New Year's Eve Gala, wine tasting, cooking classes etc. For the rest of the summer, if I'm not at home, I'll be at the Club.

4th of July Party


We decided to have a traditional block party for the Fourth of July. Everything was set up on an empty lot on our street and we were ready to go when the heavens opened and it poured with rain. Never mind, an hour later the sun was out and drying everything again. The party went ahead without a hitch. Steve organised a water balloon tossing competition which was a big hit and Lisa made cup cakes to look like the flag.
