Saturday Snapshot (Proof a Blogger Convention needs to come to Rockwall)

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky at Alyce's blog At Home With Books.

I missed last Saturday's post because we were finally out on the town.. our very own Rockwall Harbor
Lake Ray Hubbard

On the boardwalk, behind us would be the Hilton Bella Harbor resort

This is where I think the next book blogger convention should be. This is a great place for us all to meet each other, have fun and hang out. That's what it should be all about. And then on the side, the publishers, authors and publicists can have their meetings in the Hilton, and we can choose to attend if we would like..

The Hilton Bella Harbor offers a 20,000 square foot conference center and lodging right on the lake. And we have tons of entertainment options and other hotels close by.

From May through July, there is even a free concert by the lake; sit on the grass, listen to great music and watch the sunset.. they have a stage set up for these weekly concerts.

So, if we had like 200 bloggers descend Rockwall & stay at the Hilton, they would be able to go to the movies, see a concert, walk along a lake, even take a catamaran ride, eat at many different retaurants all within easy walking distance. No cab needed. Oh, yeah.. they can do the convention thing.
Just sayin'.
Happy Father's Day to everyone's fathers and hubbys .. blowing kisses to my father in heaven!
