Our weekend getaway

Jay and I had a wonderful quick getaway. It was just what we needed to reconnect and forget about worries and life for a day. The weather could not have been better if we had planned it, sunny and 72' on the first day of March. We walked the downtown area and enjoyed supper at the Porterhouse Steak House. Delicious food and fine dining that we don't often get. Then we sat on the veranda of the hotel until about 10:00, just enjoying one another's company!! We need to do this more often. A Big thank you to my wonderful husband for a great weekend.:)
The Arlington Hotel
We had an awesome room with prime view of the downtown area and the National Park and springs. Our room had a large tub with the mineral water from the springs pump in to fill the bath. I enjoyed a nice hot bath.
The view from our ninth floor room.

Hot Springs National Park
Looking down to Central Street from above in the park.

The neat winding trails on the hill top of the park.

At the bottom of the falls the springs empty into this pool. You can see the steam rising from the water. It was hotter than any hot tub I have ever been in. Several people came up while we were there and put their feet in or washed their faces.
Looking up from the bottom of the falls to the walkway above.
