What a way to end this vacation. We have some new friends who invited us to come to stay at their lake house on Beaver Lake in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
Such a peaceful place and so secluded. 15 minutes off a main road and 8 minutes was on rocky road (path) on a mountain side. No cell phones, e-mail, or any other communications, we did have a satellite for TV though.
They had a really nice boat dock complete with ski boat, Honda wave runner, canoe, picnic area with sink and running water, and a BBQ grill. WOW!
Swimming was the number one attraction. The water was a great temperature and very refreshing.
Little Amy having a great time, along with Emily and Michael.
They all loved it when daddy pulled them on the wave runner.
On Friday morning we got a tour of the lake. Ross and Janet Marsh were awesome host.
Pontoon boat is a great way to travel.
Ross dropped the kids off at the base of the cliff.
They had to work as a team and figure out how to climb the side to get up to the top. Good activity.
This was the goal.
Jumping off the cliff was great, but then they got to get a ride home on the tube.
Beaver Lake is beautiful. One of my favorite sites on the boat tour was the natural cliff. We actually pulled the boat up underneath it and the water was dripping on the boat. Awesome!
Emily enjoying the tube. I have to say this was one of my favorite activities, I got to get one of these.
We had a very nice place to stay. Thank you to the Bell family.
It was very cute and very well equipped for guest.
This is along the trail that we had to drive for 8 minutes to the payment from the house. Beautiful.
This is Inspiration point on the way home. I believe this is the White River that comes off Beaver Lake. It was a breath-taking view.
On the way home we found a great little hamburger place called Carters in Anderson, Mo. Great hamburgers!
We had a great time and it was a wonderful way to relax and refresh.
Sorry it took so long to get the pictures posted.
