Tucson to Birch Bay — Border to Border travel with WorldMark®
October 2010

Bob and Mary Gelinas make the trip from Tucson, Ariz., to Birch Bay, Wash., visiting multiple WorldMark resorts along the way.

“We live in Tucson, Ariz., and our son and his family live in Washington State. The road trip up there always seemed long and boring … but not since we joined WorldMark in July 2007! Now, we stay at great places and enjoy sharing the resorts with family and friends. It has added a new dimension to our retirement.

Last summer we planned ahead to be sure of our accommodations. Our first stop out of Tucson was WorldMark Indio where we met some friends, who live there, for dinner. From there, we drove up to WorldMark Angels Camp. Again, friends joined us and we had a delicious dinner at the golf course right near the resort.

The next day we drove around the area and did some wine tasting. We then continued on to WorldMark Depoe Bay, where our son and his family joined us. The week at WorldMark Depoe Bay was just great; highlights were the whales in the ocean, aquarium, golfing and deep-sea fishing. The silver salmon our son and Bob caught was delicious.

After driving up to the Seattle area and staying with family, we continued on to WorldMark Birch Bay (almost to Canada) for another week. Our son and his family again joined us. We tried out the local waterslide park, golfed and took a day drive over to Mount Baker where we hiked and enjoyed some absolutely beautiful scenery.

On the return to Tucson, we stopped at WorldMark Windsor, Calif., for a few nights for more wine tasting; we bought special Champagne that was available only at the winery for Thanksgiving and Christmas toasts. Another quick stop in Indio, and voilá, we’re back in Tucson — ready to plan our next trip!

There are so many WorldMark resorts to choose from — hopefully future trips will include WorldMark Big Bear, WorldMark Lake Tahoe and other resorts along the Oregon and Washington coasts.”
