Started Univ of Okla in summer of 1973 and moved into a house with my younger bro. He was finishing his Masters and I was starting Pharmacy school. He turned me on to The Moodies.

Embarcadero

First let me say I have never stayed at this property. Every year we pass across the parking lot to go from our TS to the marina. At the Embarcadero all of the balconies are on the marina side. The marina has a casa de cambio, many nice restaurants, and many nice shops. Good value prices. A new rest...

Marina area

The EP is next to the Marina. You can watch boats and yachts sail past your room at all hours. I have seen residents of the EP crossing the street with beach towels and swim suits so I surmiss they have beach priviledges. Lots of restaurants but no real bars in the marina area. You can catch the bus...

President Obama

I did not vote for President Obama- I think he was sixth on my list; but since he won fair and square I will back him all the way. No snide remarks or racial jokes. The presidency is the toughest job in the world and he needed our help and loyalty. Mogens, your hindsight is poor. G W Bush has a ways...

Gas prices ?

Beach umbrellas

Club Regina has palapas and loungers reserved for members on the
