Got back from a short trip to the Ozarks of Arkansas. A bit wet so we had to adapt. Our usual camp site at Blanchard Springs was out of the question. ElPea would not try it, even with the high lift frame. Good wife Linda is standing at the roadway that goes across the creek.

So we stayed at the Ozark RV site next to the Ozark Heritage Center. Very nice park if you wish to be near the center and in town. It does have it's own bathroom attendant so beware of late night visits with a flashlight.

Enjoyed the town, caught a music show at the Ozark Center, the heritage village is not open unitl mid April, however the staff were putting on a craft school and all the instructors and students did a show. Stopped by the Dulcimer Shoppe and picked up a new instrument. This is what happens when you leave a Dulcimer and a Banjo in a room together without a chaperone. lol.gif

And we ended the trip by staying at Winthrow State Park south of Eureka Springs. If you have never been to Eureka Springs you should. It's a wonderful town full of art and interest. It is very vertically oriented so take you walking shows and expect a work out. I highly recommend the corn beef and cabbage at the Pied Piper Inn. Linda says the lambs stew is great also.

So all in all a good trip. I know the folks in the area are glad to see a little sunshine. Will be taking the odd ball instrument to Blue Bonnet.
