WELCOME TO CHATEAU DU MER BEACH RESORT
If this is your first time in my site, welcome! Chateau Du Mer is a beach resort with a beach house and conference Hall. The beach house could now accommodate 10 guests, six in the main floor and four in the first floor( air conditioned room). In addition, you can now reserve your vacation dates ahead and pay the rental fees via PayPal. I hope to see you soon in Marinduque- Home of the Morions and Heart of the Philippines. The photo above was taken during our first Garden Wedding ceremony at The Chateau Du Mer Gardens. You can now read the national and international news in this blog at the right side bar. I have also posted my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes in this site. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own, but I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights!

9. Places in the US that Macrine and I had Visited-Las Vegas, Nevada and Surrounding Areas
Macrine and I in front of the Mirage Hotel and Casino during a Volcanic Eruption,2009
Las Vegas is our family favorite city for relaxation. Macrine and I have been to Las Vegas more than a dozen times since 1960. Our first trip to LV was in the late 1980's, when I attended an American Chemical Society Meeting. Since then we have visited the city 10 times and our latest visit was four years ago.
As members of International Interval (II) Time Exchange Program, Las Vegas is the easiest city to exchange any time of the year. Exchanging our vacation resort (our home resort is The Ridge at Tahoe) via II to other cities such as Hawaii or San Francisco is almost impossible. We waited for three years to get an exchange in Maui, two years in San Francisco and finally give up waiting for a vacancy in Paris, France. So if you have not been to Las Vegas, here are two tour videos of the sights and sounds of Las Vegas and surrounding areas.
The last time we visited Las Vegas( stayed at Polo Towers) we spent one day with a tour of the nearby three national parks in Utah and Arizona( Bryce Canyon, Zion and Grand Canyon). Details of this tour will be described in my series of articles about the National Parks that we have visited.
Note: This is No 9 (Part 1) of a series of articles on places that we have visited or have resided in the United States since 1960.
