The front of the Homestead and the hot springs.
The Homestead

Above are some pictures I took at the Homestead in Hot Springs, Virginia. I went there for the big SACUBO conference I manage twice a year. It was a great conference which is good since they are my first big client as an independent planner. It was seriously in the middle of no where and the town of Hot Springs literally consists of a couple offices, a small boutique and a subway/convienient store. It was hillarious when I said I was going to walk around town and it took me 15 minutes to walk through the Homestead to get to town and then 2 minutes around the town. And the hotel was truly historic. It has been there since 1766, there are all these pictures of past presidents that used to retreat there and then there are these hot springs that people use to come to and sit in for all kinds of medical treatments. Too bad they are closed off now :( It was still a good time, but I was very happy to return to my husband and civilization.

That building looks huge! Is that the hotel? I'm glad you had a good time at this conference and I hope that you get more big clients.
