Dec 12, 2017 - Little Rock AR

Monday’s breakfast fear was mostly – but not totally – unfounded. It started with fig soup (uh, no) but finished pretty strong. A cheesy souffle kind of thing along with some sausage (a resounding yes) and some more fresh fruit, all washed down with sweet tea. As usual, my opinion of the meal and Michele’s will probably differ. After breakfast we headed off for the short drive downtown to tour the state capitol. It was all decorated for Christmas and they do a good job, without it being too gawdy. And it was probably done pretty recently,...

Dec 11, 2017 - Little Rock AR

After breakfast we headed off to Hot Springs https://www.nps.gov/hosp/index.htm. It’s a really odd national park. It is comprised of a series of bath houses that made this area popular back in the late 1930’s and 40’s as a destination for the wealthy to soak in the waters to heal ailments. National Park worthy? I would have to vote no. National Monument? Historical Park? Maybe. But I just can’t see why this place would get the same consideration of worthiness as Glacier or Yellowstone. Baffling. Anyway, we wandered through the Visitor's...

Dec 10, 2017 - Little Rock AR

Greetings from somewhere other than Red Bay...with an explanation. We have basically exhausted the need to be in RB till next Friday when we will have to move all our goodies into the house from storage, so my travel coordinator got the itch to be elsewhere. If you remember back to May of 2016, we were in Hot Springs, Arkansas when Michele had to make an emergency trip back to Florida to help out her parents. So our visit to Hot Springs National Park had to be put on hold and since Little Rock is a mere 5 hour drive from Red Bay, she...

Sep 18, 2017 - Little Rock AR – Maumelle COE Campground

Came back to one of our favorite Corps of Engineers campgrounds to see if we still like it. We do. Rog lucked out and got us a site on the river (Arkansas River), so I had a good spot for watching barge traffic, which always fascinates me. We also revisited the Rock Town Distillery. We were first here in 2013 and really enjoyed the tour of the facility and the booze tasting that we did. It wasn’t as good this time. The tour guide needed a microphone to be heard and she didn’t have one. And, while we tasted something like 14 types of...

Aug 22, 2017 - Clinton's Library

Aug 22nd, 2017 (Tuesday) (Double click on a picture above to enlarge them) I went back downtown to the Old Drug store I saw on the trolley yesterday. The trolley driver said it had been in business at the same location since 1887. I was disappointed in it. I thought there would be a soda fountain and be an old time drug store. Inside it was just an old rundown pharmacy store. Next on my list was a visit to Clinton’s Presidential library. In addition to information about Bill Clinton, there was a lot of information about Hillary. I was...

Aug 21, 2017 - I'm in the Money

Aug 21st, 2017 (Monday) (Double click on a picture above to enlarge them) Today was a fun day. I stopped by the RV park office to buy a day pass to ride the trolley around town. The lady in the office told me that even though all the brochures say there is a charge for it, the trolley is free until the end of the year. It was a nice surprise. The trolley ride was fun and a good way to see what I missed yesterday while driving around downtown. There is an old Drug store downtown I want to go back too but didn’t get a chance today. I will...

Aug 20, 2017 - Hello Governor, can I come in to visit?

Aug 20th, 2017 (Sunday) I was on the road by 9 this morning heading to Little Rock and pulled into the RV park about 12:30. It was nice getting here early. I was able to set up and still have time to look around downtown Little Rock. I’m staying at an RV park downtown on the Arkansas River. They have 3 pedestrian bridge that they light up at night then they do a light show on the hour. I went to the Gov mansion and was able to walk right up to the gate. There was a call box and I started to hit the call button and tell them I was there to...

May 16, 2017 - Maumelle Campground - Corps of Engineers

Today was a short drive—just over 100 miles. We stopped at Taziki’s in Little Rock for lunch: one of our favorite places. After that, it was only about 5 miles here to Maumelle Campground, a Corps of Engineers campground on the Arkansas River. Our campsite is right on the river and has some shade. It also had a flock of Canada Geese when we came in. They apparently didn’t care for the company and sailed on up the river. A couple of Mockingbirds have been hanging around all afternoon providing lots of music. Tomorrow will be the last driving...

Apr 24, 2017 - Bentonville to Little Rock, AR

April 24, 2017 We were up and first in the MB service queue by 7:15. Fortunately they had a Sprinter service man who could work on the rig to replace the belts and early replacement of brake pads ( we don’t want any more MB stops!). Crystal Bridges did not open until 11:00 although they have a lovely library that opens at 10:00. The MB folks drove us to the museum. We were in Bentonville and the museum almost exactly 3 years ago. Amongst other things added since we were here is the Bachman-Wilson Frank Lloyd Wright House. It is particularly...

Nov 20, 2016 - Maumelle Park, Little Rock, AR

Saturday, November 19 We left fairly early this morning headed for Crowley’s Ridge State Park where we are camped now. This small park is lovely, and we seem to be the only campers in it just now. One of the perks of traveling late into the fall. The downside is that it is edging down near freezing at night. We’ve been very comfortable, though. Between the little electric heater when we are plugged in to the grid or the RV propane furnace when we are not, it stays toasty inside. The country side changed dramatically about halfway through...

Oct 4, 2016 - Now Where Was I?

Oh yes, Arkansas. I visited the William J. Clinton Library in Little Rock and had a wonderful two hour (maybe longer) tour. Larry declined to join me. I think he thought he might have to read.I know many of you are Republicans so I won't list his accomplishments like rescuing Bosnia, taking the cratered economy and ending with a budget surplus, making welfare more responsible and on and on. But you won't like it if I say those things so I'll just say it was a beautiful museum and I loved it a lot. Oh and yes, his impeachment is in there. If...
