I am writing this from the deck of the deluxe room while sipping coffee and gazing out over the white pine trees. Senor Ping and I are enjoying a bit of R&R at the expense of Oasis Players. Last February they were so kind and thoughtful when they gave us a golf and stay package at the new lodge at Elkwater. We haven't been to this part of Cypress Hills for close to 15 years so there are many changes since we camped here in our tent trailer. We enjoyed a drive to the lookout and then saw wild turkeys as we wound our way back down to the main beach. Last evening we saw deer, elk and rabbits. Abbey is quite excited about gophers that are quite boutiful. She was a bit worn out from all the walking yesterday but it didn't stop her from running in the grass that is much taller than her.
Today we are going to play some golf and then enjoy a swim in the pool. A glass of wine while watching the sunset might also be in order. It will be a wonderful way to spend my 39th birthday!!!!!
