Greetings from Arkansas - the Natural State

It is so great to see green trees and green grass again! We came to Eureka Springs because a friend of Marc's lives nearby and told us what a great town it is. He did not tell us that we would have to drive the 40 foot Motorcoach up a narrow, winding mountain road with very few guard rails. This was for at least 10 miles! It is lovely though!

Last night we took a taxi into town because the trolley stopped running at 6. We strolled around the hilly streets and admired the limestone structures and early 20th century architecture. The town is filled with restaurants, shops, B&Bs and old buildings. We ate at a great restaurant called The Grotto. It is in the basement of an old building and has a natural rock wall and trickling water in it. Awesome!

Marc left for fishing at 5:00 am and I took the cute trolley into downtown. I have a nasty cold so I only stayed a few hours before coming back to rest before dinner.

Eureka Springs is an unexpected gift!
