A Gorgeous Day

Jim and I haven’t gotten out much this year, but yesterday was so beautiful we decided to go for a drive to see the fall color… of which there wasn’t any yet!

We decided to head down to Little Rock and grab lunch at the Flying Fish, our absolute favorite place to split a basket of cornmeal battered shrimp, hush puppies and French fries.

I ate so much I was sick. No self control!

From the restaurant, we walked down to the river front and took a nice walk.

Walking paths like this are one thing that I love about cities and really wish I had convenient access to. On the country roads where we live, I constantly have to watch out for dogs and cars. Of course, if we lived in the city, I’d still have to drive to get to these areas, and I could just as easily drive to the Bona Dea Trails where we live now, but I’m too lazy.

It’s more likely I will squeeze my walk in each day if I can just grab my sneakers and head out the door to walk.

We walked over the river on the bridge, which seemed to go on forever, and ends up at an RV park on the other side, if you want to call it that. It’s just a large gravel pad with amenities and not a tree in sight, but it’s very popular because it’s smack dab in the middle of the city.

As if I hadn’t fed my face enough, about halfway home in Conway, I talked Jim into stopping for chocolate milkshakes. I totally blew it yesterday!

    Nice pics. Good to get out and spend time together walking. We should do it more often but Brian is taking advantage of the nice autumn sunny days here up on the roof fixing new plastic soffits and gutters so future maintenance is a bit easier in our old age.

      We should do it more often too! Such an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon :). Good idea on the maintenance, we’ve done a fair bit of that ourselves around our place, to avoid doing it later.

    Very, very little Fall color here too. Most Falls the cottonwood trees are gorgeous, but this year and last they just dried up and turned brown. We had such a hard freeze so early this year that there is hardly any color. Our Asian Pear tree keeps trying to get pretty, but not having much success. LOL

      It seems like it’s been that way for the last few years very little color. Weird I hope it comes back!
