New Awning Leading to Soda Shop

Hi!  We just had our new awning, which covers the walkway from the Spa to the Soda Shop, installed and it looks so nice!  It is a very natural sort of dark beige color that really suits our new look that we are moving towards.  Instead of featuring a lot of teal we are going to a natural look throughout the property with more neutral colors.  In fact, I am happy to report that we just ordered new lounge chairs ...
