I wish I had taken a picture of the blond bombshell from Brazil who taught AquaPilates at the spa pool today. (You didn't think I got a Brazilian, did you?) She whipped my soggy butt into shape and showed me a dozen new moves for my daily workouts at home. Then, it was off to The Broadmoor for a look at the "other" fancy resort in town.
It was lovely, but a little too formal and pricey (2 Bloody Marys for $25) for my taste. We opted not to dine there and, instead, through what I like to call another "happy Hamilton travel accident," we discovered delicious beers and brats at Bristol Brewing Co. about a 1-1/2 miles away.

|They even kept the old climbing rope. Charming!|
