"The hotel with the water wheel" is a Boone landmark for my family. We have good memories from time spent there during our homeschool co-op's mountain field trip, especially the indoor pool and the Bacchi games. This photo was not taken then when Bernie was in the 8th grade, but last weekend while attending her college graduation. In just a few short years she has become a beautiful young woman with a Graphics Design degree and a bright future ahead. Congratulations, Bernie. Your dad and I are proud of you!
