The Last Days of the AR Women's RV GTG

As the gtg was winding down it was time to finish up the usual rituals and one of those was to pass our mascot off to another deserving member and let Belle travel along with someone new. I was chosen to welcome Belle (a flamingo metal bell) into our household for a few months. Her motto was : I'm going to Disney World!

All her furry/feathery friends prepared for the welcoming presentation and Sedona even got dressed up for the event. We waited and waited but Belle didn't show up. She had an adventure the night before and she just didn't get her day started for her welcome. The welcome happened later that evening and now she will be sharing her adventures traveling with Sedona, Buffet, and other flamingo friends.

I was able to get in touch with one of my high school friends, Jeanne Johnston Rollins, from Little Rock. She came up one day and we went to lunch at a local farm & conference center. It was so nice to get to visit with her and get caught up on everything going on with her and her family. She made the offer that when I'm back in the neighborhood I could park in her driveway. Gee, I might just take her up on that. She looks so good for a gal her age! LOL We are the same age and she has held beauty well. Of course one has to have beauty to hold it, right?

Those of us who have kayaks took them out and that gave some of the other women who are thinking about getting kayaks an opportunity to try out and see four different types. Beth didn't get hers out or it would have been five different types. We also took an early morning spin on the water and it was beautiful seeing the water fowl.

We also got to see four different types e-readers and compare. That's a good reason for these gtg to look and feel and try different technologies and products. I'm gonna go with the Nook by Barnes & Noble when I get one.

I loved the campground. In section A all the sites are pull throughs (yes Margie, they will accommodate big rigs like yours) and have full hook ups (including sewer). The road up the mountain is now bad, there is a stretch of about 1 mile that is steep & curvy but it's very doable.

Good fun and I look forward to the next gtg, probably in FL.

Great photos! Can't believe you won the door prize! Lucky you! Maybe you should take up gambling...besides bingo. You have gotten some great photos of Sedona.

I'm visualizing you carrying Belle around at Disney World and taking photos.
