Settling in

We love our resort, and have a great feeling about our stay here.

The only disappointment was that the park wi-fi is going through some upgrades, and is not very reliable right now.

Talking to our neighbours, we found out that Time-Warner provides the free cable service in our park, and for a reasonable fee, you can pick up a modem and get very fast Internet.

The process was simple.  We left a fifty dollar deposit, and walked away with a wireless modem. The monthly fee is less than forty dollars.

Getting on-line was a breeze, and the speeds are as fast as we have at home.  Awesome.

Next stop was one of our favorite stores, Trader Joe's.

We stocked up on some frozen pre-made meals, and a couple bottles of wine, along with fruits and produce.

A couple of days ago, we ran out of our Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Espresso Beans, so another stop was in order.

Teresa and I have never been to a Cheesecake Factory, so a return trip is in the books.

Our last stop of the day, was at Costco.

Although the parking lot was packed, the shopping wasn't too bad, and we stocked up on our Costco favorites.

Can you say shopped out ??

Luckily, we redeemed ourselves by inviting friends over for Teresa's homemade cheesecake and some drinks.

All is well that ends well !!


  1. Nice to get all stocked up and settled in. Good internet is always nice to have .

  2. You are making want a Palm Springs fix. Wait till Teresa starts shopping. Love Trader Joes.

  3. we found out there is a Trader Joe's nearby... gonna have to make a roadtrip soon...

  4. I was going to ask you to pick up some cheese cake for me and chocolate dipped strawberrys but heck I'll just have a piece of Teresa's cheese cake.
