Back in 2015....the 31st of January to be exact, Mark won a jackpot at the casino. As a jackpot winner he and a guest(me) were offer a wining meal! The dinner was held Feb. 18th.
and the MEAL!!! It was such a nice treat to have an additional reward on top of the winnings... CONGRADS TO THE WINNERS!!! Feast up!!!
That following Friday I had scored Mark and I FREE admission to a snowshoe moonlite walk in the woods. I had prepped myself all day in anticipation. (If you recall, my zipper had broken on my winter coat.) It had been cold, but I thought a big sweatshirt over multiple layers would keep me warm. As the day continued it rained making my fear of the cold vanish....but I did not expect the HIGH winds that ran through the area. Later that evening the rain turned to sleet and the wind was blowing even more. When we arrived to check in, the park rangers couldn't even lite the torches, the wind was so strong, Mark and I contemplated the idea of making the best of it....discussed long and hard...one big gush of wind and we decided,...forget ahh bout it!!! (I feel terrible if I bumped someone out of the opportunity as there was a wait list for the snow shoes, but it was just to yucky to be enjoyable.) Maybe next time when the wind is calm and I have a zipper on my coat.
Saturday morning was MARDI GRAS time!!!! And the DAY was BEautiful!!! No coat needed!
I took this tour last year with Mary, Tammy, Rich, Mark and Brian caught up with us at the hotel. This year we had a whole BUNCH of us!!
|Renee, Bridget, Christine, Kate, Lynne, Mary and myself|

#5: Goose Watch
The crowds were really getting long, We were standing outside waiting for this one.
|Kate, Shelia, and Sandy wait for their tastes|
|Lynne, Mary and Tammy (She has gained more stash to wear)|
Starting to see the lake...
Some more beautiful landscape!!
|I thought this light fixture running through an old ladder was cool|
Wine is good, but we had more fun just having fun! Long line for the women's room. We use the mens. Renee pretending to use the urinal.
WE WERE REALLY GETTING SILLY HERE!!
I don't know why I don't have any pictures while we were there. I think I was getting to my DONE point by then, but I did steal some of Lynne's picture. (this might not be Lucus)
Bridget won at this Winery and she got a great gift, It was a wine glass!!
#11: Americana (My favorite and the last one for this tour round, there are 16th in total on the ticket)
When we got to Americana this guy offered to dance for beads. Renee obliged.
