We Are On Vacation!

Today is our first day of vacation. You know what?  Not one single person has said, "Hey, Joey where ya goin' on vacation?"  So, I guess we will just leave you guessing.  Yep, that is what we are going to do.  BOL!

We left our campground in Houston at 7 a.m.  We arrived here around 4:20 p.m.  It was a long day of driving. We have had longer driving days, but today seemed really long.  We wanted to save some time, so we took a "short-cut" which meant we were not on the big interstate.  This is good and bad.  There is less traffic, so that is good.  The bad is that there are fewer places to stop.  We had one stretch that was about three hours between stops and that is too long.  We went through some rain, but nothing severe.

This guy greeted us at our first gas station stop about 30 minutes from Houston.

We crossed the state line at 1:30 p.m.

We finally arrived at our campground.  We are in North Little Rock.  We have been excited about camping here.  Why?  Look at our view!  Okay, don't look at the rain, but just look!

We are right on the river!
We stayed at the river a few other times in West Memphis.  We really enjoyed it there, so decided to try it here.  We are near downtown.  It is so cool!

Mom fixed lasagna roll-ups for dinner.  Actually, she fixed it last night in the Instant Pot and made enough for tonight.  All she had to do was reheat it.

After dinner, we walked over this bridge.
I loved walking across the bridge!  I had to climb steps to get to it, but it was easy.

Can you see our RV?  It is the 2nd one nearest the river.
See us now?  2nd one.

The bridge leads to President Clinton's Library.
 The main reason we stayed here is because it is near President Clinton's library.  This will make 12 out of the 13 presidential libraries that the folks have visited. They really regret not going to Ford's when we were near Michigan last year.

Flowers on the bridge.

Here comes a barge!

Another view from our window.

The library is the building behind the bridge.  
The bridges light up at night, so we will try and take photos if the weather clears up.
