|Hotel Seville, Harrison, Arkansas|
But, to be honest, we knew ahead of time that Mother Nature has not been kind to Arkansas this summer. So--what we found was not totally unexpected. However, it is truly much DRIER and much HOTTER than either of us thought it would be. I felt as if I had walked into Autumn with all of the brown grass and fallen leaves---but knew better when we felt those temperatures over 100 degrees.... Yipes!!!!
However, since George and I make the BEST of all situations, we found alot to do during those days ---and we had a great time making memories together. Today, I'll share a few of our memories to you!!!
Above is a picture of the lobby area of the historical hotel where we stayed, HOTEL SEVILLE (in Harrison, Arkansas). We love old hotels. This one was built in 1929. IF you want more information on this hotel, click HERE.

HERE. The picture above was taken at the Sod and Ida Mae Collier Homestead built in 1928. Here's more info about this area: click HERE.
One good thing about no water was that George could climb all around that Natural Bridge area. He had a good time---and I enjoyed staying below taking pictures!!!! ha
