Tuesday is Kayaking...

 
...with the Bella Vista Paddle Club. About 9 of us out on a wonderful evening. This is one of 7 lakes in our town. It has been raining off and on all week. Did get a few dry times to play.

 
 We are so fortunate to have this awesome bike trail. The Razorback Regional Greenway is a 36-mile, primarily off-road, shared-use trail that extends from the Bella Vista Lake to south Fayetteville, Arkansas.  The trail links together dozens of popular community destinations. Which includes:
  • 6 downtowns
  • 3 hospitals
  • 23 schools
  • The University of Arkansas campus
  • Corporate headquarters of Walmart, JB Hunt Transport Services and Tyson Foods
  • Arts and entertainment venues
  • Historic sites
  • Parks and Playgrounds
  • Residential communities
  • Shopping areas

 
 Here we are in a busy area, but we all feel very safe riding and cars are very cautious of us. Here we will hang a right to reconnect with the bike path.

 
Last week I took a pic of the  Cross Church from a distance. Well this bike ride to us even beyond, a 23 mile ride. See the bike path below, in front of the crosses.

 
Here is one of your ladies testing out a bike seat. We are having too much fun!


The 5 of us all got stickers from the Cycle Track Police Officer. We are now official in the city of Rogers! LOL

 
And I leave you with Zoe, who was waiting for me to get back home from my bicycle ride.  So darn cute.

Biking last Sunday...

 
                               Part of the tail had this. 'Bike loans'. How cool is this.


 
                        This was a 10 mile bike ride to here. Now to turn around. *smile* See the 3                                           cross's in the background?

 
Last night kayaking with the Bella Vista Paddle club. A great night, as always.

I so love where we live...

 
 
I pulled over this morning to get this shot. The sun was just coming up. Just beautiful~

A little of this and that this week...

 
                                        Hubby found this Tee for me...*smile*

 
                                             This is Zoe. She loves her ball.

 
Here is Sophie. Amongst her favorite toys.
 

 
     Yesterday the 6 of us went paddling. A wonderful day to be on the lake. Here we are at a friends dock, where she served us Lemonade!

Penolope's 1st 5k Color Run

 
While my daughter Ondrea was pregnant she ran 3 5k's. This one mom said "was her fist one out of the womb."  *smile* Dad grab a GOLD medal for her at the finish line.



 
I just love our morning walks. Saturday is always a different route. Never know what I may see.
 


On our 18 mile bicycle ride yesterday we dropped by 21C (a luxurious hotel) in downtown Bentonville, Arkansas and was able to see this awesome car all decked out in pennies, nickels and dimes! Its also for 'rent' too!

A nice night to be on the water with Rosie and friends

 
 



 
The group was not to big this week. About 8 of us. Then men went ahead, we lagged behind. Talking, laughing and paddling. What we do best. Hmmm. Seems we over shot our turn and about an hour later one of the men kayakers came to 'take' us back to our launch. Fun times and a great 4 mile workout!
 
 
Pretty in pink. Our walking group, the 'Walkie Talkies' have a monthly breakfast together. Here are some of us on a trail near the restaurant.

                          I so enjoy walking here. Always something new to see.

 
 Looking out our front door the other night, just in time to see this little family enjoying an evening stroll and grazing.

Mondays are always a larger group of walkers!

 
 


 
 
As you can see, we have a lot of groups at different pace levels. Always nice to chat and catch up with one another.
 


 
Todays ride on the Wing took us to War Eagle Mill for Beans and Cornbread. Great place to shop and eat!
Then it was on to Eureka Springs and then
The Short Stop Grill for ice cream on our way home! A very nice day trip to say the least!

A Honda Gold Wing...time to ride!



I love being a 'backseat' rider! We had a smaller bike for a short while, but after the first 300 plus mile ride we knew we  needed to do something different. So we went from a Honda Shadow 1100 cc to a Honda Gold Wing 1800 cc. This one has all the bells and whistles, I love the rear seat. A nice captains style. I say its better then a tractor seat! *smile* Arm rest and cup holder. The helmets have a mike and speakers so we can chat with one another. A nice little feature to have.

 
             Todays ride took us towards Oklahoma then back around to Arkansas.

 
                                 These are the Boston Mountains in the distance.

 
      I love the Ozark Mountains....so much to see and do! Life is good. *smile*

 
       This morning in the awesome 64 degree weather was a nice 5 mile walk.

 
      We always take a different route on Saturdays...just to do something different.
           Today was one of the 7 golf courses we have in the town of Bella Vista.

 
                                                 Dew was still one the ground.


Came home, jumped on my bicycle and did a short 3 mile ride. I went down a side road I haven't taken yet. I should have known it wasn't going to be good when it was almost all down hill! Holy hell. It was one heck of a work out coming back up. I love my life. It's all good.

My grands, daughter Desira and Jeff!



 
 
Boy, when it rains in pours! I was driving 22 miles an hour on US 54/Kellogg it was raining so hard! But what an awesome rainbow coming back from Derby, Kansas.


 
 
                                          Ahhh, quite and movie time. *smile*
