Memorial Day has come and gone....officially ending the winter season. This week was like a mass exodus as those last few RVers/snowbirds left for their summer nests. The neighborhood will be a lot quieter now that the happy hour gang has left. Mike & Bev Connolly and Larry & Donna Kraft headed out today for cooler climates. Am attaching pictures of their departure.

It's business as usual now that the holiday is past. Landscapers are busy aerating the golf course, trimming trees and shrubs, and pulling up the pretty flowers that just can't take the summer sun.

Construction flourishes at lots of sites. New park models arrive almost daily. Here are some pictures of the latest village home to arrive. Our guess is that its headed to site 1312 since there is a mighty big hole back there. Hope I'm around with a camera when it comes time to move to the site.

The cactus plants continue to bloom in all their glory. The blossoms are truly amazing even though they last only a day. While I can't detect any odor from the blooms, it's obvious that the bees certainly can as they flock to each blossom and excitedly roll around in the pollen until their little bodies are covered in what looks like fairy dust.

Rumor has it that the hotel across from the resort entrance is going to be an Extended Stay America. That should be a great boon to the hospital for family and temorary employees.

That's the only news from the resort for now. I have some personal exciting info on the Hepler blog. See the link in the sidebar of this page.
