Fun at Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center

We met friends at the Hilton DFW Lakes Executive Conference Center in Grapevine, Texas for the Mayborn Writer’s Conference. While Hugh and Perry attended workshops and lectures, Mary and I shopped in Dallas and enjoyed the hotel pools.

With 99 degree temperatures, water bottles were a necessity. I packed a western print cup wrap. I needed an extra large Kup Kollar to put around my forehead to absorb the perspiration continuously trickling down my face. I think my body lost a bottle of water while I took photos of the outdoor pool!

The hotel pool and pool house snack bar is located next to a lake for a beautiful natural setting.

Meanwhile, Mary did her pool exercises in cool water. When I joined her, the water felt especially good on my overheated body!

Later we enjoyed the indoor pool with a hot tub next to it.

Back in my hotel room, I showered then brewed a mug of hot tea. I sipped it while dressing for the banquet that evening.

Conferences are a lot of fun!
