Galena, Illinois: A Trip You Both Can Love
A spa for her, golf for him
Teri's other solo stint takes her to Stonedrift Spa (left) at Eagle Ridge Resort outside Galena. Stonedrift includes a couple's room, but my guy DNA hasn't relaxed to the point of letting strangers caress me while ethereal music plays -- especially when there are four golf courses on the property.
When I return from a golf lesson, I find Teri in the spa's lobby. Her toenails sparkle metallic red, and she's melted into the chair with muscles freed from the kinks of motherhood, thanks to a masseuse armed with heated river rocks. "It was wonderful," Teri sighs. "I could've fallen asleep right there... but I had to get my pedicure."
