Once i was back home, my sister-in-law Roberta Martin, her daughter-my niece Pamela and her hubby Scott Harris were here in town. They were going up to Jay Peak and see what had been going on since they was last up there. Scott helped with the design of the golf course. There were many changes, the huge hotel and all the buildings, its amazing!!! Scott got a golf cart and we all went around the number 9-18th holes and now I appreciate the golfer more, its HUGE and we were riding in a golf cart. What a work out just going from hole to hole, It was so beautiful with all the winding roads, bridges, places to stop and get water, and all the Fall cornstalks, pumpkins and mums that were put up, just AMAZING!!! I know I enjoyed our two hour tour and we had a wonderful time.
