2016~Indiana, Part 1

On Memorial Day weekend, we RV'd up to Indiana to take Sue and Randy camping and to visit with family. We weren't scheduled to camp until Tuesday so Geo spent time with his brother Jim, and I visited with Jeanne and Sue.

My sisters and I stopped by for a little 
visit with Jim but I forgot to take a pic.

On Tuesday, we headed out to camp at
It was not an uneventful drive!
After taking a wrong turn, we ended 
up a good way down this dirt road.
Hind sight is 20/20, right?
Looking back, there were clues that 
we were not on the right road.

Clue #1
The road was only narrow 
enough for the motorhome 

Clue #2
We've never been to a state park 
that took us down any dirt road.

Clue #3
The road curved, became narrower, 
and a few trees were too close to the 
roadside for us to curve past them
so we could not go any farther!

We had to unhook the jeep, 
and back down the road.

Randy stood behind the RV and 
guided Geo back to where we 
were able to turn around.

At last,
It's a small lake, only 131 acres 
but it has a cute little beach.
The first night, we discovered 
that ticks were everywhere!

Not long after that, we were told 
that it's called TICKsaw Lake.
How appropriate!
One reason we picked this area to camp 
is because it's only 30 minutes to the 
town of French Lick. 

Also, we would have preferred 
which is closer and bigger 
but we decided to take this 
trip too late and it was booked.

We started our first full day at 
Sue, Randy and George had a 
good time driving the track.

 I took blurry pics and vids with the iPad.

Next, we self-toured the 
which is part of the French Lick Resort.

It was captivating!
We were inspired to look up.

and look down...

and all around.


These stained glass doors were very pretty.

The cool, spacious and lovely balcony!
We sat and rocked for a short time.

The view from the balcony.

Delightful greenery and 
flowers are everywhere!
We really enjoyed breezing 
through the West Baden.
It's a neat place!

We finished off the day by playing
course which is also part of the 

Kick offs!
Randy was the only one 
wearing sturdy shoes.

Sue wore decent tennis shoes 
but not the best for foot golf.

I was wearing Sketcher's canvas Go Walks.
Somewhat flimsy.

Worst of all though, 
Geo was sporting sandals!
In the beginning of the game, 
(and more than once), 
Sue and I could be heard saying, 
"Ouch, my toe!" 

My ankle was stiff,
and my legs sore for days after, 
but I loved it and would have 
played again in a couple days 
if it had worked out.

Note George's sandal is completely 
broken on the left side in the back!

Foot golf was lots of laughs! 
A total blast!

Part 2 soon.
