Spring Break in Indy
Ok, It Was Just One Night
But It Was Great!
Crown Plaza Hotel
Matriarch Kathy, Jean, Brendan and Owen
Rhythm! Discovery Center is the world’s only interactive drum and percussion museum. Founded in 2009, it is a creative vision of the Percussive Arts Society,
the largest member-based international percussion organization in the world. Rhythm! features unique, interactive exhibits highlighting a rich collection
of historic artifacts and hands-on percussion instruments and serves as the definitive place where the history of percussion is preserved, celebrated, and shared.
Dynamic exhibits feature instruments from leading percussionists and promote the understanding of percussion and its role in world cultures through interactive
educational experiences. And we were the only ones in this Museum the whole time we were there! What a treat!
I'm all set to go with the drumstick earrings Jean made for me. We all just started trying different instruments right away
Brendan and Grandma....Brendan found a few instruments that were his style....Jean and Brendan
Owen in his element...We were here for 1 1/2 hours
Walking around the State Court Building
Flags.... pinwheels....A sculpture....Shadow of the sculpture
The Governor is home on Easter afternoon....Buildings....I really like it when local garden clubs present nice flowers!
We saw a squad car lead a NCAA basketball team somewhere. I think it was from Spokane.
The NCAA final tournament was held in town and Baylor won
Outside the Crowne Plaza....We parked out front....Checked in....And they said we could leave my car right where it was! Once nice thing about Covid
Me and a couple of Nuns....The white statues are "ghosts" from the past....The ceiling of the elevator
Posing in front of the train....There are 16 guest rooms in the train....It's a real train on real tracks
Our ghost trainman....How the room was presented on the web page....It was exactly like that....Owen after finding out this is our "room"...Love all the windows
Our microwave....My favorite hotel clock....The hallway to the next room where we put our luggage....Owen and Jean
Owen outside our room posing with the train....Looking both ways down the tracks
We had a great dinner in the hotel....We all had leftovers....Jean and Owen crossed the street to enjoy a jazz band playing for them
After breakfast delivered to the room by Jean and Owen, we headed over to War Memorial Plaza to check it out
After checking out the waterfall on the first side, we headed to the other side to enjoy the other waterfall
For some reason only Owen knew this was the city flag of Indianapolis....Pretty window....I like the detail on Circle Tower
Then we headed to the Canal Walk....These stones really impressed me (I think I am part Druid)
I like the idea of a "niche"....A statue with an umbrella is unusual and fun...The canal....A statue without an umbrella
Unusual clock....Art piece....Plaque
Birds....The White River
