a nice warm bath

B and I decided yesterday afternoon to visit the Roosevelt Baths at Saratoga Springs and have a soak. We've been meaning to since we landed at Pleasant Hill. On our travels between New York and Kentucky, we've made side trips to Warm Springs, Virginia, and Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, to "take the cure." While the Roosevelt Baths don't have the historic charm of the Jefferson Pools in Warm Springs or the spaciousness of the bathing rooms at Berkeley Springs State Park, they have a charm all their own: scented oil in the mineral water followed by a 20-minute snooze on a bed covered with warmed sheets. Most certainly relaxing on a cold and snowy Saturday in March.
