Here are a few pictures to illustrate last weekend's adventure in Florence, Alabama.
The hotel pool in daylight and at night:
Note: The teenagers were on the left side of the pool, where a twisty waterslide traveled through a tunnel in the rock and dumped them out into the deep part.
The bar for watching the Preakness and listening to live music, and the patio dining room. We had two breakfasts and one dinner out on the patio in perfect temperatures and soft breezes.
Inside the revolving restaurant and the tower, with the restaurant on top.
The food was wonderful, by the way. We had grilled scallops and sea bass with a lovely pinot gris.
We're guessing that the restaurant was about ten stories high, way above the six-floor hotel.
And our most interesting shot: our reflections on the wall as our revolving table faced the setting sun across the Tennessee River.
If the water glasses look tilted, it's because they were. They had slanted bottoms, which only increased the sensation of the moving floor as we completely circled the tower by the time we finished dessert.
We spent much of Saturday exploring Helen Keller's Birthplace in Tuscumbia. To see the whole photo album, visit the Germantown Lions Club Facebook Page at:
