I'm here at the Surf Club now. We've been here since the 11/1. The ocean does have a smell to it, but I only noticed it once you get in the water. So if you are going to sit by the ocean and sun bathe, then you won't smell it. Of course you'll want to go in, but it honestly isn't that bad. I seemed to only smell it when a boat woud go by really close and the waves would start to roll in. There are tons of people in there every day, so it isn't that bad.
Two weeks ago was the annual meeting. I've been told that Marriott has finally contracted a company to come in and dredge the ocean bottom in front of the surf club. They are paying for this, as it has never been good. I've got no idea when that will happen. If I find out, I'll post it. I was also told that the MF's are going to be about $1250. About a 20% increase over last year. Ouch!! I was told this by someone who is still here that went to the meeting. Again, if I hear different, I will post.
