Day one goes by so fast!

Today went by so fast.  Woke up to a beautiful morning, coffee on the balcony, shower and the morning was almost over.

We had a lunch appointment at The Center at Ocean Landings, followed by a short presentation on myMVPCollection.  Since upgrading to the Carribbean or Dream Buidlings, which are the two larger building here which are facing the ocean where all room are oceanview, we've been considering upgrading from our current membership or to at least look at how we could maximize our membership.  Agreeing to attend we would also recieve a $75 gift certificate for a local restaurant. So we decided to invest a few hours.

The Center is part of this resort.  In addition to several larger meeting rooms, and the Resort Check-In area, there is also a small bar, a game room, a beautiful fitness center, a day spa that also provides massages, and, new this year a Sauna.

Lunch was excellent and included soup, tossed salad, macaroni salad, an assortment of sandwitches, fruit and muffins/cupcakes.....  We are always hesitant to make any kind of a monitary transaction/investment on the spur of the moment, just because something sounds good.   Long story short, we did not sign a contrat to join MyMVPCollection, but we did take a temporary 18 month membership to allow us to use the membership and some of it's priviledges, and we also got one free week here at this resort that we can use any time in the next year and a half.  
                                                                                 At the end of the 18 months,
we can say no we do not want to join, or for a  reasonable investment  we can exchange our current unit for an Oceanfront unit with a permenant membership.    With our upcoming trip to NY - we will have a good opportunity to use this program and determine whether there are advantages to a full membership.  This is the smaller of the two buildings that face the ocean, and we would be looking at a room on the third floor or higher.  We've stayed in this building in the past and the units are very very nice.

So we left with a $50 gift card to Brano's Italian Grill, and a $25 gift card to Gregory's, which is the restaurant located here at Ocean Landings and a free week here at the resort.  

By the time we got back to the room it was after 3:00.  About 6:00 we headed out for dinner.  Tonight it was a fish fry for Rich, and a Chicken Quesadilla for me, and then a quick trp to the grocery store, and a short walk down to the beach.  I would like to attemp the walk along the beach - but I'm not sure I can get through the deeper softer sand to get to the shoreline.

Going to try and get up early tomorrow morning and see if I can catch the morning sunrise  across the ocean!
