I began this blog as a vehicle for reporting on a 47-day trip made by my wife and me in our motorhome down to the Yucatan Peninsula and back. I continued writing about our post-Yucatan travels and gradually began including non-travel related topics. I often rant about things that piss me off, such as gun violence, fracking, healthcare, education, and anything else that pushes my button.
I have a photography gallery on my Smugmug site (http://rbmartiniv.smugmug.com).
We went into town today for lunch at an Italian restaurant, DeVito's. It was good, but not great. We did have trouble finding a parking place and ended up walking further than anticipated. The streets in the old historic section of Eureka Springs were laid out as dictated by the very hilly, almost mountainous, terrain on which the city was built. They are not straight and the blocks are not rectangular, which makes it somewhat difficult to navigate the first time you visit Eureka Springs. The buildings are very 1880's, mostly constructed of stone or brick with many being of the Victorian style. The town is composed mostly of "cutesy" shops, boutiques, and eating establishments. It's a shoppers' paradise, but I am not a shopper. However, I am looking forward to walking around town with my camera tomorrow.
There was quite a nice sunset this evening and I am including a photo of it in this post.
