Pirates Cove, Living in the life of the Rich and Famous.

This is Pirates Cove. It is the property of the owner of Nuskin. It has approximatley 25 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms. 2 water slides, 3 pools, 4 total houses, and one big obsession with pirates. The owner loves pirates, so it completely decked out with pirate stuff. Amazing place! We only stayed for two nights, but I could have stayed there all summer. It was beautiful,........ oh the life of the rich and famous.
Bruin till he dies. Loving on Marilyn.Jo looks just like popeye here. Look at the resemblance in the nose.
You can't see very well, but there were dead people hanging below us.The whole property had these really old tall cactus.This pool had a rope swing, long with the slide, and tiers to jump.The ship.
We didn't get a picture of the top of the water slide when it was running, so this is the best picture I have. One really cool thing about the water slide was when you started coming down it would play music so people at the bottom knew someone was coming and could get out of the way.This was a little play cuddy for the kids to play in. It even had a flat screen tv.
Swimming late into the night.
Indoor Basketball court. Fully air conditioned. I didn't get a picture, but it also had a full gym, amazing equiptment.
Mariachi Band. It really played music when you got near the band.Another pool.
Looking down on a view of the property.Wrestling a gator. It was made of metal, so when Jo first jumped on it, it burned his chest.

These are the three tiers you could jump off. The top one had bee blocked off when we were there. It was so high.Jumping off the cliff. This pool was 14 feet deep.Coming our of the Big water slide. This slide was inside the ship that was on the property. So much fun. You could slide down on the blue pads that you can see in the picture and it would make you go so fast. We rode down in all directions.This had sound and movement just like the ride in Disneyland. He even whistles at the dog.
"Earthquake!"This was one of the pools. It shallowed out like a beach.
In the pool they had this little cave you could go into, and inside was this fish tank. Eva J loved it, everytime we went in she would point and jabber.
Trapped in Jail as my Prisoners.

Ahhh the Tillotson's Pirates Cove! I'm sad I never got to go there in all my time at Nu Skin. But I did get to go to his cabin in Oakley and it's freaking amazing too! I think it was his beach house we stayed at in Hawaii. Wow, to be THAT rich!
