Comfy new lounge chair cushions for Abbey One and Abbey Two

We have installed custom made lounge chair cushions made from a much more durable and waterproof foam that is much more comfortable to sit on than our old ones, and they won’t flatten out so quickly over time.A2 lounger cushions

New side walk in the back of Abbey Two

A2 back str 1 A2 back strJin decided the trees in the back of Abbey 2 were getting too big, breaking up the side walk and interfering with the power wires so – poof – they are gone and we have a new side walk! This should get more light into #9′s living room and sun in the courtyard for sunbathing.

Fun times with Good Friends

Abby Odes at beach bar 2013

John Ode at La Choza

Odes 2013Our dear friends from Minnesota, John and Kristin Ode (Abby’s known Kristin since 8th grade) come down every winter to create fun and havoc for us. They even got Abby to the beach one day to sit under the shade at the remodeled beach bar now called UNICO. We went to eat at lots of yummy restaurants (John is displaying his kabob at La Choza) and had lots of fun. One of the things Tiff and Abby love the most about owning Abbey del Sol is all the friends, old and new, they get to share Paradise with.

Beautiful sunrise on the beach

Most mornings Tiff and Abby walk the beach as the sun rises. Walking down the boardwalk beach access near our properties this is what the sky looked at. Pure Heaven!
