California Dreaming and Return to Paradise

Hi! I am so sorry I haven’t been in touch this past week but I was in California on a family vacation and we had an amazing time! We spent a few days in San Francisco exploring the city, taking a tour of Alcatraz and Muir Woods, and walking through China Town. Demi is almost fluent in Mandarin so she found this especially fascinating. We also took a drive out to Napa Valley and had the honor to be hosted by ...

Fourth of July at Lago Mar

Hi! I hope everyone had a fantastic Fourth! We sure did here at Lago Mar! The weather was great all day long with super sunny skies and a crystal clear ocean - perfect for swimming! During the day we had our steel drummer on the lagoon island and then Craig Fitch, our guitarist, played during the evening hours until the fireworks began. Chef Phil and his staff did a wonderful job with the buffet servicing Acquario and The Sea Grape Terrace. My ...

I Said Yes

Hi! I hope everyone is having a nice summer! I have some exciting news for everyone… On June 16th I turned 50 and got engaged to Chris! He gave me the most beautiful heart shaped diamond ring with a rose gold band. His proposal was very romantic; we were on a private beach in Green Turtle Cay in the Bahamas and he got down on one knee to ask me to marry him with the kids there! We are all so ...

New Summer, New Food, New Beach Club Director

Hi! Summer has officially started for me and the kids, as school ended last Wednesday! We have already spent so much time at the resort, having tennis friends over for match play/dinner and playdates down at the beach. I am so excited that our new lunch menu will be out soon! We just finished proofing it and it’s off at the printer’s. A few months back, we had a tasting of the new items and I immediately fell in love with ...

Food and Fitness at Lago Mar

Hi! The kids and I have been super busy with all of the "end of the year” events pertaining to school, some of which I have actually hosted at Lago Mar. All were successful but I have missed writing my blog. Thankfully, summer vacation is days away and we are so looking forward to traveling to a few fun places and spending most of our time here at the resort with friends. In the past week, I have been dining at ...

Mother’s Day Weekend at Lago Mar

Hi! I just wanted to report that Mother’s Day was a huge success here at the resort! The weather was perfect and the Air Show helped to make it even a more fabulous day. The Sun Sentinel reported that this was the best Air Show yet and I would have to agree. What a great place our beach was to watch all the planes do their maneuvers without having to deal with the crowds down AIA. Chris and I and the ...

Happy Birthday Sidney

Hi! I just wanted to share with you that today, April 18th, would have been my grandfather’s 118th birthday if he was still alive. I still miss Sidney, as we called him, and think of him often. We only knew him as Sidney because he did not want to be called grandpa and have anyone think he was old. He was a great man and spoiled me so much. It is because of his hard work and that of my grandmother, ...

Tortuga Festival and Demi’s Big Day

Hi! Fort Lauderdale was alive with music during the Tortuga Music Festival! Each day I was so lucky to be able to drive along A1A to take the kids to school and, last week, was even more fun because we got to watch the set up for the festival, including three very large stages! Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Tucker Boatyard were among a few of the dozens of talented performers. Our resort got to see plenty of country music lovers ...

The Lago Mar Fit Life

Hi! I am writing to you because I am passionate about sharing the story of my past year and the lifestyle changes I have made. Don’t get me wrong, my life was great before, but now I feel ten times better about myself. What I did was simple: I woke up one day after a tennis tournament, which I lost earlier than I should have due to lack of endurance and not being in the best physical shape, so I set a goal to ...

Memories at Lago Mar

Volume 1: Debbie Banks I remember when I was a little girl and my grandfather (Sidney Banks, first generation), whom I loved dearly, used to take me, all dressed up, to the Sunday Night Buffet Dinner in the dining room. Men were always in suit jackets and there was always a band playing. I even remember the singer, Lee Carroll, who I thought was absolutely gorgeous, singing our favorite songs if we asked. Lots of our guests and members would dance ...
