We spent the afternoon and evening at a turn-of-the-century resort town in southern Indiana (previously written about after a visit this summer.)
A few photos, for kicks!
The lobby of the West Baden hotel, with mini-dome. The actual dome, which covers a huge interior atrium, was closed off for another event.

We spent some time wandering around the gardens. I love the Greco-Roman inspired architecture:
The resorts are surrounded by national forest property; you can see the idyllic woodsyness in the background. While wandering up the hill, we spotted a doe and this year's fawn, now nearly grown.
Then--on to the ball! We took photos after the evening of dinner and dancing, so I was a little tired--the gown in repose:Overlooking the main lobby at French Lick:
A pensive peacock:
He dresses up ok, I think :)
