Green Valley has only been developed over the last few years - seemingly a bunch of roads and accommodations joining up golf courses. The highway even has lanes marked out and the supermarket has parking lots especially for golf carts.

The Wyndham resort was like a collection of fully fitted and functional show-home apartments. The strange thing was that, when we arrived, there were only two or three other guests. Apart from one night when a small herd of Wyndham management staff turned up for what was clearly their management development program - with teams of people building tee-pees by the pool - the place remained empty almost to the threshold of loneliness. The poor front desk staff were only too pleased to see someone go past to talk to. Mind you, the "housekeeping" still managed to border on the apathetic to rude end of the spectrum. (When it came to considering leaving a tip, Ron's reaction was "I have a tip: don't p!$$ off your guests!!!"). It was a day or so before we noticed that a handful, maybe a dozen, of Heidi's prescription painkillers had gone astray. Cousin Carol pointed out that they had some street value...

Other than this, the week long rest in Green Valley was really good for us. Exploring the local restaurants. Touring the supermarket. Sitting by the pool - or in the pool or hot tub. All were busy activities for this area.
