    for those of you wishing that you were at tonight's AM bb gathering.................OMG horrific.
    We met up with Tracey D and her hubby............but the 4 of us had to get outta there in a big hurry.
    The stench from across the street and behind Amsterdam Manor (the sewer treatment plant) was horrible.
    Now, I am a barn person...I ride 2x a week at least. The ranch where i ride also has a few pigs. The stench from
    this sewer treatment was much worse than the pig area at the ranch.

    Tracey is having some concerns about her stay at Amsterdam Manor ...I think she moves in on Wednesday.

    Paul and I reassured her and her hubby that the stench is NOT the norm.

    But, suffice it to say it was so bad today we HAD to get out of there.

    Other folks were sickened by the stench too.



    However it was wonderful to meet Ms Tracey and her hubby.
    Nice people.........but i suspected that all along

    That's awful!! I know it's not the norm and certainly not under the control of AM but I have read reviews on Tripadvisor recently where people were complaining about the smell during their stay. Hopefully they get it resolved right away. Probably not a good night for Passions either.

    years ago....(maybe 2004 0r 5 it was bad like it was tonight) and we were at lacabana and had friends at amsterdam manor and the smell was sickening.

    it was a little breezy today and i would have guessed that the smell would have diminished....i was wrong.

    That's too bad. I thought they moved that treatment plant or did something with it to keep the flies and the stanch down. Glad you got to meet Tracy and her husband.

    Andrea,

    I've made a living designing and constructing these facilities since 1977. I can help! Can you get me a job there?

    You guys should consider moving next weeks gathering if its not any better. First off it was so great meeting Andrea and Paul. Its funny how,much we have in common given all of our differences. Jon and Paul are so adventurous...when I get home I have to look up info on hang gliding ☺.


    We are very concerned about our stay. I booked non refundable through a 3rd party site so we may be stuck. I have been in contact and we will see. We decided tonight that we will wait and see and if its too bad we will,rent a,car and spend time at other beaches. Its too bad, as our plan was total relaxation for those days. There is no Way I could relax on the beach or eat atPassions and spend good money for it, to smell that stench.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
