It's been awhile, but I am hooking up with FAST Blog for Five on Friday.
Last week a neighbor asked me if I would go with her to a place in Indiana called French Lick. I have never been there, and have always wanted to go, so this was my chance. She was meeting some friends she went to school with and needed someone to navigate.
Here are some pictures of the hotel....
First stop was in town for lunch. (actually first stop was the French Lick winery but it wasn't open for lunch that day) Here is a picture of the hotel from town.
Can you tell what this lady is doing? Looking at the sky through a cereal box!
(Say like an old person)
"Back in my day we didn't need fancy glasses to look at the solar eclipse, we put pin holes in boxes. Works just as well and you don't spend a bunch of money..." blah blah and blah.
But the hotel was passing out fancy solar eclipse glasses...
The second thing I loved about the place was the décor.
Three - stuff to do at the hotel
They have a casino inside the hotel, a couple of restaurants, a spa, a bowling alley, and some boutiques. The only place we went to was the restaurants, shops, and the casino. We got there on Monday and left on Wednesday, so there wasn't time to do it all.
We were losers but at least we were good sports about it!
(Actually, she did win around $180 the first night we were there! I never won, but I'm not a big gambler so I didn't lose much either!)
The fourth thing I loved about the place were the pools. I never did get to swim in them,
They also had a seating area and deli by the pools,
And last.....the doorman! He was only there on our last day, but look how he is dressed.
(He kind of looks like the wizard of Oz to me!)
I loved French Lick and I would definitely go back.
