A night away

We just went over to Pere Marquette and spent the night away to go Geocaching. (You can check that out at www.geocaching.com – basically, someone hides a box full of trinket things in the woods, gives you the coordinates and you try to find the box…it’s funSmile)

 

We had an ok time – the cabin was neat but it was one of those trips that you wanted to go on to get away but that you kind of knew it was a waste of money and you shouldn’t really be there spending your money like that…yep, it was one of those kinds. We were really suppose to be at the Creation Museum but something told me that we weren’t suppose to go so we did this instead…good thing too since my mother in law broke her hip and had to have a hip replacement during the time we would have been gone. So back to Pere Marquette – There wasn’t really anything to eat around there and we wasted $65 on the all you can eat Sunday brunch buffet – the food was mediocre – none of us can eat enough “all you can eat” to warrant spending $65.

 

Here’s a picture of the lodge…thankfully they had an awesome indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna – kinda makes up for the mediocre meal!!!

SO – a “Big Cedar Lodge (Branson) it is NOT and the only thing it has over the YMCA Trout Lodge is the indoor pool. Needless to say, we won’t be going back there…unless I guess if they give us a free night or something like that…who am I to argue with that!?! At least we can say we’ve “Been there”!

Here’s our cabin

Oh yeah – we DID find the Geocache – it was fun and we got a Travelbug to log too.
