Only ten days til Branson

I wrote on my Blogger site about plans for going to Branson, having made reservations at Fall Creek Resort for me, Cliff, the daughter's two girls, and my son's oldest two kids.  After making the reservations I found some pretty awful feedback from people who had gone there; but I figured we're not real picky, and would probably like it just fine.

Yesterday evening I received an email from my friend Lona, who always has her bags packed to go someplace and knows the ins and outs of travel.  She suggested I check out some places she found on VRBO.

Not only did this information save us $66 over the two-night stay, but we're now going to be in Pointe Royale, a gated community that has nothing but positive feedback!  We'll be overlooking the golf course.  There's the indoor pool that's a must for the girls, and miniature golf.  We may not have Internet (unless somebody has a non-secured connection), but we'll live without that for two days and nights.  I know my oldest granddaughter would have liked it.

The very helpful gentleman I spoke with said several of Branson's stars live there full-time, which is why it's gated.  So maybe we'll look down from our condo and see Mickey Gilley or Moe Bandy or Andy Williams playing golf!

I'm excited.

Wow I checked out the Fall Creek Resort... sounds so lovely!!!  I would be in the workout room, the salon, the indoor pool.  Rob would be in the marina from dawn to dusk.  The kids would have to be fished right out of the pool.  Hugs,
Lisa
