The Little Log Cabin in the Woods lived up to its name. It is very loggy but was surprisingly comfortable.
There was – however – no Internet or TV so I missed out on the US Masters on the weekend and did not see Bubba win his second green jacket.
When we checked in - the owner said that the area was teeming with wildlife but we saw nothing – nothing – during the entire weekend.
No squirrels, deer, skunks, foxes, beavers or bats, lizards or snakes. We saw not even one bird – except in the far distant sky.
There is not much in French Lick apart from a thumping great hotel and casino and the West Baden Springs Hotel. In great anticipation we booked a table for Saturday night at the 1875 steak restaurant in the hotel – and were mightily disappointed.
The other two nites we ate Candy’s Chili- and it was delicious.
I made Cate go to the casino as I had never been to one before. It was not like anything I have seen in a James Bond movie. Apart from the fact that everybody smoked – the standard of dress seemed to be beach grunge.
We saw the Ohio river and some of Southern Indiana. Which is much like Northern Indiana. We are itching to go to Kentucky and are thinking of going to the races.
