Well, by the time we left Walmart it was almost 1300 as we probably had to drive about 15 miles to get to town..so decided to try and find a Mexican place for a late lunch. Honestly, we were about to pull over and make some sandwiches but then we spied...Casa D's place..just down the street from the Battlefield..yummy! and very inexpensive!
We left there, and drove by the "Battlefield"...how sorry that was..it was about a 1/4 acre in size (really a battle that lasted from one morning til the next night) and only that big..it was overgrown and there was no place to park..we figure they must have sold the parking to the bank next door..no place to pull over it was sad..we had to drive by and get the pictures I got by truck....it was raining so we wouldn't have stayed long anyway...but if this battlefield can make it to the state map shouldn't it be more taken care of?!
So we headed back to camp and had an awesome rainstorm the rest of the day and night til bedtime.
We have some pop up tent campers across our "arm" of the lake...two little families (yes, I know I am a stalker)...haha...anyway, sure they are there for spring break..but felt bad for them, as they were outside in the rain, (as we know kids will do) for quite awhile until it got to be too much...here's hoping they have a better day!!
Tuesday am..we are headed towards Arkansas today!
