Tara was recently fortunate enough to attend a wellness conference for work at Crystal Mountain resort. I was also fortunate enough to be able to join her Thursday afternoon and Friday (although our Friday plans were cut short due to Tyler and Samantha having a makeup baseball game that evening).
I arrived late in the afternoon on Thursday. We took a quick walk around the resort before heading out to dinner. We ate at a little pub-style restaurant called Dinghy's Restaurant & Bar. After our meal, we headed back to the resort to attend a dinner and dance that the conference held that evening (obviously we skipped the dinner).
On Friday morning Tara had the final sessions of her conference. I loaded up the cars and checked out of the room while waiting for her. After the conference was over, we headed out to stop in Beulah (I have always wanted to be able to say I have been there - in fact, with our stop in Frankfort the night before, we almost made it to B.F.E. - Beulah, Frankfort, and Elberta). We were originally going to try to head out to Sleeping Bear Dunes, but with the kids ballgame we really wouldn't have had much time to enjoy it so we instead headed home for the weekend.
Overall, I think that the resort was nice (at least in my short experience there) and Tara would like to attend the conference next year. Hopefully if things work out in the future we can go back with the kids for some fun.
The first group of pictures below are from the wellness conference that Tara participated in.
Here are a couple of pictures from around the resort.
After I arrived, we went for a drive for dinner. This picture is of the Welcome to/Welcome back to Frankfort sign that we passed under on our way into town.
After dinner we attended what was left of the dinner and dance hosted by the conference.
On Friday while Tara was at her conference, I took some picture of her room and the resort.
After Tara finished, we headed to Beulah to take pictures.
And finally, we headed home for the day.
