Dear Dave,


Hello there. How are you doing? How is your summer going so far? Did you do anything fun for the long weekend? Are you staying close to home this summer or are you doing a big trip somewhere?


Dixie watching car being towedOur summer has been pretty good so far. I don't know if you remember from last month, but were down in Palm Springs for a short break. Well, everything was going great until...our car DIED. That's Dixie watching it being towed away. So sad. Well, it was going to cost more to fix the car than what it was worth so we decided to leave it down there.


Since we had Dixie with us so we couldn't exactly jump on a plane and come home because she is big-boned girl (shhh don't tell her I said that, she is touchy about her figure) and she is over the weight limit for airline cabin restrictions, and there was NO WAY we were going to have her go as cargo. So...we had to find another way to get home from California.


To make a long story short, we ended up renting a car and dropping it off in Seattle, which was a little inconvenient but it all worked out in the end. Of course one of the first things we had to do when we returned home to Vancouver was to buy another car...

New Car 2011

As you can see, Dixie does love her convertibles. :)


Other than that things are going well. Both Dave and I have been busy doing sales calls in and around Vancouver promoting Real Resorts, Honua Kai, El Cid Resorts and Canto del Sol. We'll both be travelling around Western Canada a lot over the next couple of months for various shows so hopefully we'll see you soon.


Anyways, have a great August. Hope it's a busy one for you. If you need any help closing the sale, we're always here to help.

El Cid turtle releaseBABY SEA TURTLE RELEASE
A wonderful and unique opporunity awaits your clients. Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort in Riviera Maya began its sea turtle protection program in 1997, when its first turtle nested on their beach. Given the successful beach restoration following Hurricane Wilma, the sea turtle nesting season has become a celebrated annual event over the past 15 years!


El Cid's environmental staff cares for the baby turtle eggs by burying them in a protected area of the beach so the natural hatching process can be kept under watchful eyes. Our Security guards, staff and, of course, resort guests, love to be a part of this fabulous process. So far, 2,496 eggs have hatched and been set free, with existing nests of 129 eggs.


T-shirts and photos are available for sale, and children receive a certificate, and those under 12 receive a free future stay.

One of the Top 10 Dive Spots in the World

When you have clients staying at Honua Kai Resort & Spa one of the things they should try to do is a visit to Molokini, a sunken volcanic crater 2.5 miles off the coast of Maui. Molokini is home to some of the most breath-taking marine life in Hawaii; 250 species of fish and views to 150 feet deep.


Also, if your clients visit between the months of December and May, the boats to Molokini pass through a channel famous for its whales.


Honua Kai Resort & Spa is Maui's newest resort offering a uniquely contemporary Hawaiian experience along 38 oceanfront acres of Kaanapali's pristine North Beach.
