Last Day of ES 2012

Susan, Badger, Margot and Hautsauce.  Saturday morning at the Roadhouse.
Mal and Yvette, Skid and Sandy

Laura and Don, Lucky Al

Visiting with absent members!

Like most places in Eureka Springs, the Roadhouse is very Motorcycle friendly

Skid and Mal, from the back seat of Skid's Avalanche

Vickie and Kay puddle hopping into the War Eagle Mill.  Been pouring all morning

New vroc'er Debbie D, we had to use a truck to get in some site-seeing today, too nasty out to ride

Vickie soaking up some history of this old mill

Beautiful old stove,  Not connected any more, but has kept the place warm for many a cold winter day

Gift shop.  First floor is the mill and food items, second floor local art and other gift shop items, 3rd floor the Corn Bread, Beans and Cobbler loft.  They have sandwiches and other food too

Fish from the White River

Some of these would look good on our pot shelves

Some excellent sauces, jams, etc.

Vickie went out in the rain to get a better look at the mill wheel

"Preston's" Bridge

Twice a year they have a craft festival here.  Lots of vendors, and interesting things for sale.

Vickie and Kay inside Thorncrown Chapel

Been inside here many times, but never really noticed the lights before.  Probably because it's always been sunny when we've visited here.  Not today

Kay, Vickie, Debbie and Robert

View from a small one lane bridge

Headed across the White River.  Wouldn't like to meet a roaring Logging truck in the middle...Oh..maybe they don't have "roaring" logging trucks this far East :-)

Many times have sat on this bench having a nice cold pop.  Was very disappointed to see this old Inn closed up and for sale. Another "end of era"

Would be nice if someone buys this place, opens it up without too much change.

Beaver Spring House.  Built of wood in 1857, changed to stone in 1912.

Cables for the suspension bridge.  Those nuts are about 6 inches in diameter.  

Looks like the Golden Gate

Nice little City.  This was taken during rush hour.

Excellent Sign

After I loaded the bike, had a lot of people checking it out.  Too bad the manufacture quit making this model, it gets a lot of interest.  I'm grateful to Cat for selling me this excellent trailer!

Margo modeling her new helmet

Saturday night, the party is winding down.  Because of anticipating the ride home tomorrow, most of the beverages are soft tonight.  

Lucky Al and Hotsauce are supervising the "changing of the chock" so Skid can haul 2 Gold Wings inside his trailer

Badger, Gambler and Pappy about ready to call it a rally

Cassie and Cuddles.  She's glowing in the dark!

A warm, wet, Skid.  He just finished preparing the trailer for Lucky Al to load his bike

In it goes.  We're anticipating a great caravan to Williamsburg and the WWR next week.  Mal and Yvette will be going with us.  Fun taking the "kids" along :-)

Because of work, Malachi and Yvette didn't get here until last night. And tomorrow we'll be leaving with them to head East

Vickie, Debbie, and Kay.  Been our good friends for over 20 years.  And Teri, another special friend.  She's here working at the ROK rep from Kawasaki

It was nice renewing friendships, and talking over old times.  Debbie and Vickie's brother Robert was also there.  This pretty much wraps up this blog.  Will be starting a new one later today for the next Rally.
