On The Banks Of The White River

Bryon’s been to the White River at Bull Shoals several times. This was Grace and my second time. The last time we were there she was twoish.

This was our last leisurely vacation weekend before back-to-school and the first in our new/old camper. Grace brought along a girlfriend.

I assumed the position in front of the hillbilly breeze and finished a really, really good book while Bryon looked longingly at the water and waited patiently to fish.

He tossed the girls around in the lake that had a sandy beach like Florida…

rode bikes and cooked us up some good eats.

Of course it poured rain the first night so we ate in town and played games in the camper.

We ate Italian food at a restaurant owned by a Chicago Bear who look a lot like this guys…

Then they got to visit the Statue of Liberty… Arkansas style.

The James Gaston Vistor’s Center had a great panoramic view of the lake and river outside and…

posers inside.

Bryon is still down there fishing with his buddies, and I’m taking Grace and another of her girlfriends to Silver Dollar City tomorrow for our last bash before the third grade starts this Thursday.

Life is good in The Big Cedars.
