My dear cousin Ruby asked me to help sell her Time Share in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. She listed it several times before even costing her out of pocket money with no results. The fees had risen dramatically since her original purchase and due to age and health she could no longer enjoy it.
Ruby wanted me to go for her week in her bungalow on the beach to take photos and in turn I would market the deed for her. Could I say no to this one? Not a chance.
The girls and I had the time of our lives!
The view from our Bungalow was magnificent.
From the moment we arrived I knew I would have a difficult time breaking away to try and sell it! I just wanted to go play and bask in the sun.
A glimpse of our courtyard.
We climbed 203 steps to the top of the Ponce DeLeon Lighthouse. The 360 degree view was phenomenal. The colors off the prism of the actual light were lovely.
The Lighthouse was built in 1876 and has been meticulously conserved. The climb was worth it.
One of my many shots from the Lighthouse.
Sharing the Cheetos!
Does it get more perfect than this?
We met Randy on the beach and he turned out to be quite the artist! He introduced himself as sandy Randy~lol.
He worked quickly. High tide wasn't for another couple of hours. I'm glad to have these shots before they were washed away.
Cooling off with ice cream.
Now, you are probably wondering how I got around to selling the Time Share. There were a couple of really nice ladies in the Bungalow next door all the way from Canada! We watched a couple of sunrises together. We shared wine, ice cream and many laughs.
We formed a friendship and "VOILA", over she walks to tell me she decided to purchase the deed. Yup. I played, had a ball, didn't miss a moment of a good time and I CAME BACK TO TEXAS WITH THE DEPOSIT!
So, let's see...
I had the vacation of a lifetime!
I'm touting a great tan!
We watched the Shuttle Launch from the beach...how cool was that?
I sold the Time Share and the trip is a write-off!
I will leave you with a couple of my favorite pictures. The sunrise was better than a painting. Who would want to sleep through this?
Not me...Florida, I will be back soon.
Thanks for letting me share my vacation and my success! It's a great thing that she bought it or I might have! No kidding!
Later in the rain~Deb
