And I'll talk more about that. I mean, I posted a little bit about my session (Yes, You Are a Writer), and I'll talk about it more later as well, but right now, I just want to share some of the beautiful images from the Arlington. I'd love to have more pictures from Hot Springs but at these kinds of conferences, you get to soak up the image from an arms-length. I scooped up all I could.
Here are some of them.
|The hotel is filled with original details, like these glass doorknobs and keyholes (you needed|
actual keys, not card keys, for your room).
|Dew drops on the cobwebs of the window latch. |
|You know what? It's really hard to get a photo of a mirror. |
This one looked original to the hotel.
|Some people were reminded of Titanic and were looking for Rose and Jack to come|
down the staircase. Others (like me) were reminded of The Shining and were afraid
to turn a corner and run into a creepy set of twins.
|Painted glass entry to the famous bath house.|
|Vintage post in the bathroom of the Al Capone Suite.|
|Another vintage post from the bathroom of the Al Capone suite.|
|Super-secret getaway door in the closet of the Al Capone suite.|
|View from the living room of the Al Capone suite.|
|Al Capone in the Al Capone suite!|
No, it's not about Hot Springs, but they do name-check Al Capone. We played the song in tribute when we were hanging out in the suite. From what I know of Mr. Capone (all of which was garnered from HBO's series Boardwalk Empire), he might have enjoyed this.
|Another bath house/hotel that burned out about a year ago|
|Fun entryway to the restaurant where we didn't go for dinner|
|Looks like the set from Psycho... but it's actually a book-themed bed and breakfast (who knew!?)|
|Where we went for dinner. We customized our buffalo mozzarella pie with prosciutto and arugula and yes, yummy.|
|Mountain views from a roadside stop on the way home. |
That's not a thing flying in the sky, it's a dead bug on my windshield (sorry).
