Back From Vacation

I spent the week in the towns of French Lick and West Baden in Southern Indiana. These towns have a lot of history. There are two giant hotels/resorts in the area, The French Lick Springs Hotel & Casino and the West Baden Springs Hotel. Honestly, it's hard to imagine why these two luxury hotels are there, but it goes back to the healing springs discovered in the area in the 1800's. Guests would flock to this area for the springs and some smart business people figured out how to capitalize on it.

We actually spent our honeymoon in the area at the nearby villas. These are condos that can be rented which sit on a hill overlooking the French Lick Hotel & Casino. I may post more about this place and add some pictures later. It's all worth seeing.

More later.

I thought you were awfully quiet this past week. Welcome back.

Must be nice!

Six years ago I took my wife to Fullerton (about 40 minutes from our apartment) to watch the Amtrack trains go by, near the Motel 6 off Main St.

I know, I know...but every once in a while I think you should spoil your woman.
