It’s hard to capture this lovely area in a photo, but here are a couple of trys…..
Looking into the harbor from the Island
A view from a fort window – that’s a ferry coming over with more tourists!
There are just some plain old scenic spots… and here’s one of them.
This is a departing shot – looking back from the ferry as we were getting ready to leave.
And here is a shot of Gary from the walk-way up to the fort.
Besides the great new friends we made, and the lovely (well most of the time) weather we enjoyed, there was also the livestock that kept us smiling! Ponies, llamas, deer, buffalo, horses, goats, donkeys – some were in the petting zoo, some were free roaming, and some were actually wild!
Here is Beuford the Buffalo – he lived just up the hill from us. We just waved as we went by!
We really enjoyed the horses at SOTO. There were always some that were free roaming- and you never knew where you would find them in the morning. These guys just seemed to pose for us…
We took a long trail ride on one of our last days there. John took us across Big Creek and high up to one of the bluffs. This is a shot of Gary and I with a view of Big Creek behind us. I’m sure you can see why we loved this project!
Finally – I’ve gotten some of these pictures uploaded!
Here are some shots from our “get-away” in Eureka Springs.
This was at Blue Springs Nature Center.
This was from the top of the Crescent Hotel – the highest point in in Eureka Springs (and one of the oldest hotels). That’s Gary enjoying the view and the bag by the table is from the Thrift Shop. Ah, yes, it was a good day!
And this is a view of the White River which runs past Eureka Springs.
As you can see, we had great weather in a beautiful place. I’d recommend the spot to anyone!
Here is a composite of some scenes at the Teen Challenge Ranch. We had some very beautiful time here!
Here is where we started the day on our “day off” – The lake at DeFuniak Springs, FL
And this is the beautiful beach on the Emerald Coast of Florida – Yes, it was a good thing!
And finally – here’s the view from our lunch table
I don’t have any pictures of me washing the windows, but it happened, honest!
