Once again, you meet the neatest people cruising
30 October 2014 | MM 14.8 Arkansas River
Today we traveled 33 miles towards the Mississippi River. We almost made it, but we got held up at lock 2. We had no choice but to anchor one more time on the Arkansas. Lucky for us that we did!
There is a state park near our anchorage, so we took the dinghy ashore. There were nice showers there, so as cruisers, we couldn't turn down unlimited hot showers. Pat was the first person done with his shower, and while he was standing outside waiting on the rest of us, a gentleman asked him if he wanted some fish. When I went outside after my shower, Pat asked me if I wanted some fish. After consulting with the ladies, we decided that we could indeed use some fish! Boy, did we meet the nicest couple! They are Randall and Tammy Burchfield. They have been staying at the park for several weeks fishing and relaxing. We spent the most incredible hour just visiting with them. Randall and Tammy, we will never forget your kindness!
