We went to Table Rock Lake last week for a well earned vacation. Okay, I jest about the hard earned part but we had fun. Emily and Patrick were able to go with us but alas, James had a test and could not make it. One of the highlights of the trip was the long anticipated opening of the “Top of the Rock”. Top of the Rock consists of several restaurants, a few bars, a wine cellar and a chapel. This fabulous place also has a gorgeous golf course, driving range and putting greens. It was all so gorgeous I wished I was a golfer. About 10 years ago, the original Top of the Rock burned. Johnny Morris of Bass Pro fame bought the property and spent 8.5 years redoing the whole place. After all those years of seeing signs saying “coming soon” it finally arrived and it is beyond amazing. The two things that still were not finished were the cave and the Natural History exhibit, but those are scheduled to open this week. If you are ever south of Branson, you must stop for a look. Below are some of the photos we took the first night we went for dinner and drinks. We were there 4.5 hours on the longest day of the year. The sunset was brilliant.
Gorgeous art, everywhere I looked:
Oh, we ate at both restaurants on different nights. Most of the art above was in the side of the building that houses the “Osage Restaurant” and the wine cellar. We also got drinks on the patio.
Check out that chapel!
Patrick and I danced.
Well, that rounds up the first part of our vacation. What have you been up to? Where should we go next? I will try to post the rest of the pictures later this week. 4 Comments
