Our 1st RCI Vacation - Las Vegas

Posted by White Point Vacation Club Team on July 22nd, 2009
Our first RCI vacation was definitely one we will always remember…in January 2009, we left behind frigid cold temperatures and snow in Nova Scotia for a glorious and exciting week in Las Vegas, Nevada with temperature there ranging between 72 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit.  We enjoyed a suite at the luxurious  Hilton Grand Vacation Club Hotel on the strip. It’s true, there is so much to see and do in Sin City….besides having a bit of luck gambling, and experiencing some of the best shopping malls ever, including the famous Miracle Mile shopping Mall dsc_00091dsc_00581vegas3-2981including Coach, Tous, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Michael Kors, we saw lions at MGM ..we took in the Elton John Concert at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace, The Price Is Right at Bally’s, plus we also rented a car for the week and were able to drive to see the Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon in Nevada, the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and being only 3 and 1/2 hours away, we drove to Los Angeles, right up to the Hollywood sign,  even walked on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and shopped on Rodeo Drive.  The food in Vegas was incredible…and not at all expensive….you can opt for an all you can eat buffet for under $15.00, or a more formal restaurant setting for under $25.00 or grab a hotdog and beer for $3.00…there is something for everyone.

We enjoyed ourselves immensely, so much so that we went back again and will most likely go again sometime.  We highly recommend this as a vacation spot for couples and also for those with children…there is so much to do and see for all ages.

Thanks to RCI, we are eagerly planning our next vacation to Hawaii in the fall..so check back then for our trip highlights!

A Great 2 Days at White Point!

Posted by White Point Vacation Club Team on July 13th, 2009
We used our bonus stays to book a cottage for two days with our family.
Our vacation cottage was just what we needed. We went to the beach, they jumped in the waves while some sat on the sand and caught up while others went golfing. Then the kids went to the inside pool and swam until it was time to go back for dinner.

The kitchen had every thing we needed , you folks at WHIT POINT have not forgoten an thing in that cottage.

Next day … more beach , facepainting for the little one, pingpong and pool for some , paddle boat rides , and the golf course again for some. And of course, more swimming.

Back to the cottage for a familt BBQ, a fire in the fire place and smores for everyone. Then we played games around the table , just wonderful family time.

Day 3 we were on our way back to our homes. Sorry to say good-bye to our family and cottage. We left with tears and a lot of wonderful memories .

AS THE SONG SAYS “ THANK WHITE POINT FOR THE MEMORIES”.
Stanley & Laura Kelly

Last Call for 2-for-1 Golf at White Point Beach Resort!

Posted by White Point Vacation Club Team on July 6th, 2009

Ahhhh…summer at White Point has sprung and until Thursday this week, guests at the Resort can still enjoy 2 for 1 rounds of golf on this playful seaside golf course. Members of White Point Golf Club have been impressed with the conditions and overall continued improvements since the Resort has taken over Management of the Course.

The Clubhouse offers a refreshing beverage on the deck overlooking the course and the ocean - the Clubhouse Sandwich made with fresh turkey comes highly recommended!

Be sure to say “Hi” to Golf Pro, Dave Kemshead on your way through - and don’t be shy about asking for a lesson!

Jamaica…Go you will love it!

Posted by White Point Vacation Club Team on June 30th, 2009

In mid April we travelled to a 5 star resort in Lucie, Jamaica on the Negril Coast. It was our first time back in fifteen years and this was a new resort, The Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton. It was a large complex with a main beach , adult beach, and snorkeling beach.  The complex included an exercise facility, a luxurious spa and numerous pools. Food was amazing, with three large all you can eat buffets and five a la carte restaurants and the service was excellent with very friendly people; nightly entertainment on the main stage, and at the bbq pits on the beach. I am trying to keep this short because it would take a book to point out all the wonderful features. Vibrant colours in flowers and wild life. Jamaica has alligators as well as colourful birds.

The sunsets were spectacular and very quick as is common when you are closer to the equator. For anyone with mobility issues (as I have) there were complimentary cart pick up to transport you wherever you wanted to go, available any time.

The pictures show this luxury all inclusive resort and for contrast, the nearby historic town of Lucie with its Spanish fort and fishing. I have included the lower level of the main lobby, windsurfing on the sunset beach, looking into Lucie from the point, a view of the complex showing the main beach and some of the apartments, a series of pool conduits at the spa, a sunset seen from the bluff above our unit and the main pool swim up bar with the built into the pool loungers.

Go! you will love it.

Adventures in Africa!

Posted by White Point Vacation Club Team on June 24th, 2009

In 2007 , I went to S. Africa, Botswana & Zimbabwe with Senior Tours Canada.

We flew Air Arica from JFK, N.Y. The people we met on the tour, the guides, and the people of these three countries were wonderful.

We met a real tribal chief.

The variety of landscapes and the scenary was awesome, the animals intriging, the food delicious…mmm! Crocodile tail is some tasty……..the Mopane worm was  rather blah. We went on safari, both morning and nighttime….exciting.

One night we were served a late dinner by candlelight out in the wilderness. Martha Stewart eat your heart out!

Lovely tablecloths and the chairs were draped in fabric. Delicious food, and wine if we wanted it.

While we enjoyed our meal, several men walked the perimeter with guns, just in case any animals decided to make a meal on one of us.

I had a wild ride on an ostrich…fun!  
Took my first helicopter ride over Victoria Falls..magnifcent.

The disparity betwen rich and poor is heartbreaking. The poverty is overwhelming. But the spirit, exhibited by the African people in their effort it to overcome adversity is inspiring.

I would love to go back. I share a few of my pictures here for your enjoyment!
