Thursday September 22, 2011-Heartland Resort

To begin today's record, I wanted to show you a photo of the finish line at the Indy 500 race track that I took yesterday and omitted when I loaded the pictures. This is the last of the old original bricks at the track and stand in honor of the past winners.

We went into downtown Indianapolis to see the canal that was originally dug as another boat route from the Great Lakes to the Ohio River. Only eight miles of the canal was completed before they ran out of money.

Near the canal, the city erected a monument to the attack on New York city on September 11, 2001. Two columns from the World Trade Center were mounted at a high point overlooking the canal.This is the larger of the columns with an eagle on top of it.

This is the monument that was erected. We were traveling through the area near Shanksville PA where Flight 93 crashed on September 10th, the day a monument there was dedicated by Presidents Bush and Clinton. Of course, we didn't visit the site on that day, but we were nearby.

This is the view out our back window out into the lake behind us. This park could be improved upon and a really nice resort could come about. Mack and I walked around the park this morning before we left and believe that with some work this could be a great place. Of course, neither of us wish to work hard enough to bring this about, but its just a thought. If any of you have some money laying around, this place could be a good investment. If you do decide to buy this place and make a fortune from it, you can send me a few thousand dollars for a finders fee.

So long.

I can't believe you were at Indy! Did you kiss the bricks like the NASCAR drivers do? :)
