The New Hurricane Hanna's!

Wow - great improvements over at Hurricane Hanna's! I do hope they find more permanent fencing to separate the pool from the seating area - doesn't look quite right. But the setup is great - the bar is much improved and includes seating, everything looks updated and clean and the refill mug station is in its own alcove with the condiments - not in between the bar and the counter service area. Love it!

I usually avoid the rows of chairs right in front of the volleyball net - a bit too hectic for me.

I decided that the quiet area to the right of the hot tubs - sort of to the left of Beaches N Cream is my favorite area to swim. There's a little waterfall, part of it has a sandy bottom, and it's very rarely crowded at any time of year. And there are a few chairs to the right of that area that offer a nice view of different areas of the pool. It's a central location, but a bit tucked away. Now that all of our boys are strong swimmers, it's a nice spot for us.

A few photos - but don't let it get too crowded!
You found my spot! That's my favorite part of the pool too.

pixarmom, thank you for the awesome picture tours and menus!

Thanks Janet and Sue! Sue, not sure if they actually fixed it, or if our boys are more tough than in the past, or if they were just so happy to use SAB while staying at BWI that it didn't bother them. But they definitely thought it was different from all their previous SAB slides - including their slides in October of last year.

I'm in Guilderland and we don't even have 2 inches right now at 8:00pm. Our district was the only one around that didn't close though, kids got their school day in. It's just picking up now a little. I doubt we get more than 6-8". Still not looking forward to the drive to Troy tomorrow morning for hockey though.

Updated YC Marina Prices





The sea racers!! The sea racers!! SO much fun for all and even our 13-year-old could drive. Our 12-year-old was old enough, but not tall enough. I didn't think I would be interested in driving, but I loved it too.

Wait!!! School was cancelled for you!!! We should have had at least a 2 hour delay this morning so they could have plowed the school parking lot properly!! It was a mess, and I was waiting for everyone to get stuck!!! Where in Central Michigan? My DS has a teammate that goes to Mattawan, and they are on their 6th snow day this year!!! Thankfully, the sun was out today and melted the driveway and other roadways!!

Yes, all the Deluxe resorts get lotion.

Yay! So relaxing! Now that our boys are getting older and their swimming skills are so strong, I can actually start to think about things like this!

Regarding the soy milk, something called Pearl was in stock at BC Marketplace last October. I think it's soy milk. You can see it near the milk in the photo of the case in my BC Marketplace photo thread: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3007564

As you can see, the SAB hours must be subject to change again. It was 10-10 when we stayed there in October and 10-8 in January/early February. You can see the removable thingy for the hours on the sign:

What she said!

Teena- take care of yourself

Pixarmom- AWESOME!!!

These photo tours are perfect! I'll link the posts to the appropriate section on page 1.

And you got the picture of the ever-present golf cart.

Your spot at SAB looks nice and relaxing. I won't tell about your new favorite place if you don't tell anyone about my secret seating section in the gazebo on top of Hurricane Hanna's!

Love the French bakery pictures- "Wine: It's what's for breakfast"

Mango coconut cake??? Buh-bye creme brulee!

I can't remember if I asked you to take the Marina Price Sign picture, but THANK YOU!!! I was playing around with that post last week and noticed the picture I have is a couple of years old.

For Robyn: Turkey Sandwiches

Hi Robyn!

Just wanted to let you know that not only are turkey sandwiches on the kids' menu at BC Marketplace, but also over at the temporary Boardwalk Bakery. They also offer grown-up turkey sandwiches.

Sounds like a few options for turkey remain!

Deal on the SAB spots! I thought of your favorite gazebo top spots and grabbed a couple photos:





And this time, we rode in the golf cart back to BWI! Nice service.
