Well I am here at the Worldmark Seaside Resort which I rented from a local vacation company and paid a pretty penny to be here. I paid for an oceanfront room and yes I did get an oceanfront room which is located on a low floor right next to the turnaround! We look over all the people (tourists and some seedy looking) hanging around the turnaround and walking down the "boardwalk". Loud trucks and cars drive by with stereos blaring and I can actually hear the conversations of the people in the street. There is no TV in the 2nd bedroom and we brought my son's Wii so he can play it with his cousin who is also here in Seaside and he just used some of his birthday money to buy a new game to bring with him. I am sitting in this unit with all the blinds closed in order to have some privacy. This is going to be a nightmare of a week! The weather looks to be raining most of this week which means most of the time we will be in this closed up noisy unit. The front desk person told me to turn on the fans to drown out the noise. We are traveling with another couple or else I would go back home tomorrow. I might still cut it short as I can have a lot more fun back home doing all the touristy stuff with my son we locals never seem to do.
