Well rested...


The weather could not have been more beautiful.  It was sunny and warm.  The magnolias were in bloom and the internet was forgotten technology.  We spent four days of peace and quiet with only one television in the house that we used just to check the basketball scores.  It was fishing and river watching we were more interested in.


The White River located in northern Arkansas became our playground this year.  It is a dreamy river that changes from shallow to deep depending on the electrical needs (power plant).  The first 2 days were very deep and the last 2 days were so shallow we could almost cross it at some points.


My daughter spent most of her time wading in the rocky shore line with the local dog Buddy.  He would fetch stick after stick for hours on end.


Our middle son got a work out on his fly rod.    We had trouble getting him to come in at night.
The boys spent a day with a fishing guide and brought in more than enough fish to make trip successful.


One big happy family back from a spring break full of fun and sun and fishing.  We are well rested with a belly full of rainbow trout.  Enough even for the local dog Buddy!

Not to worry, I did stop at many antique shops and flea markets.  There are some treasure posts coming soon...I think I was the only one who missed the internet!

Looking at you folks in this country scene me thinks you need to come up here and stay in any of our guest quarters and see some really spectacular scenery. Not that yours was not but really it's tough to beat Alaska for beauty. Alas it does cost a bundle just to fly up here that's a drawback.

I am so happy that other people find my Arkansas as beautiful as I do. I'm in Fayetteville, so you weren't too far away. It's funny, because on OUR vacation - we are headed to Kansas! :)
