I still have to purchase airline ticket...has been a very hectic, bear-down-and-get-through-it week and a half here.
Hey, I was thinking that if you ladies are interested in going to Carlyle Lake on Saturday, we could stop at Excel Bottling and do a tour of their Brewery and see how they make Ski (a soda that is bottled in my home town). I know someone who works there and can give us a good tour but they do regular tours on Saturdays at 10am. Here is the website: http://excelbottling.com/about/
I was thinking we can then have lunch in that same town, at Dairy King. It is my all time favorite place to eat. It can get busy, so maybe if we eat after the tour (probably 11ish?) then maybe it won't be too bad. Here is the website for them: http://edairyking.com/
And if the weather is nice and you all want to go to Carlyle Lake and want some exercise, we can walk on the Carlyle Lake Dam (Spillway), and down to the General Dean Suspension Bridge (
Just near all of this, there is also the sailboat harbor that my have boats in it (
The restaurant/Excel Bottling is about 30 minutes from the hotel and the lake is just 15 minutes further than the restaurant.
Any opinions? Is it too far away?
Laura, I'm open to whatever. You're the native guide, so pick things that make this area fun/unique.
Ditto what Michelle says here.
Maybe I can get arrival/departure flight times close to yours, Michelle, for only 1 airport run. Anyone else flying in?
LOLOL--I'm with you on the intense heat and red face all the time, Melanie. As you know, we're baking (literally) over here with high today 111F. Soooo, this will be a fun challenge inside the A/C which goes on my gratitude list again.
