Just spent a very long weekend in Arkansas - touring the countryside and sampling a bit of the motorcycle rally.
What a fun and relaxing time we had too, heading out last Wednesday morning and coming home Sunday afternoon. The newspapers said that close to 400,000 folk came out for the event - and they could be right, but we went down to Fayetteville three times and each time, the streets were packed with people and there were bikes everywhere.
One day, we went up to War Eagle Mill - they have a huge craft fair each year and I would love to make it sometime but it will definately have to be a car / truck trip and not a motorcycle unless I plan to mail alot of packages back home! ♥ As I crossed the bridge that goes over a wide stream, I couldn't help but notice all of the spider webs. Since my last run in on my deck a few weeks back, I've become entranced with them. In one section of the bridge, I counted 10 webs all together - in all sizes but each one beautifully intricate.
Below the bridge, a flock of ducks seemed to love playing in the water - and didn't mind that their pictures were taken either :)
After reviewing my photos, I've come to realize that my camera seems to focus on old farmhouses & barns, churches and graveyards more than anything else. I would love to take some time to walk through an old graveyard sometime and pay my respects, but I hesitate to ask the other 10 or 12 folks riding with us for fear that they'd think I went over the edge. These treasures that we ride past on our ventures in the countryside have always captured my attention and curiousity.
One day trip took us to Jasper, Arkansas and both hubs and myself decided that we could retire to this lovely spot on God's good earth quite easily. This is known as the Grand Canyon of Arkansas and I'm here to tell you, the view is breathtaking! This photo does not do justice to what you behold in person.
