No sun...loads of fun!

I asked for an ocean-view room as far from the lobby as possible (good forced exercise!) and this was our view. Spectacular! The weather only got a bit better on our last day...but the temps were still in the 50's. Oh well...we had a great time. The shopping was I've ever seen...of course, buying at this size is so much more fun. We drank margaritas and ate wonderful food....but I walked and walked...didn't gain or lose...YEA!

One night's theme was dress as your favorite TV or movie character (if you wanted to...otherwise just dress up nicely)....the Blues Brothers were there....
and Homer and Marge Simpson....

and Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio.....

Brittany and her Mom.....and numerous others. Maui Jim Sunglasses is a very casual, family-oriented, successful company...they put on some sales meeting...I was very impressed!

I did my walking on the beach....that will get your muscles working....felt good...and reminded me of summer at Snyder Beach :)

When the weather was a bit better on the last day, I looked out the window!...there was Catalina Island...lost in the fog and clouds for three days.

One night they took everyone (about 500 people) to an Asian-themed Dance Club...great food and a fabulous band (that Maui Jim hired) called Polyester Express....this is the smaller group we were with....another great night...and the music was all late 70's and early 80's....we danced and ate and knocked ourselves out. (I hate this picture of me, but everyone else looks great!)

Next year the meeting is in Dallas.
