Gardengrrl likes being outside and watching "Sky-TV"

So we went to Hot Springs for vacation the other day and it was supposed to rain the entire time. Having already booked the motel (our favorite, The B Inn), got someone to cover my work shifts, well there was no backing out.
We went to Bass Pro and bought some cheap rain pants and rain coat, cow girled up and went for it. Had a blast!
Of course because it was supposed to rain most of the time I only brought my old old point and shoot. Seriously, nothing can be adjusted on this camera. The menu knob fell off a few years ago and it is stuck on "auto", which is good.
For this reason, there were many photo opportunities. I saw some really cool birds like a scarlet tanager, nut hatch, Mississippi Kites; (7!) and a very obliging peacock that posed for me.
I love peacocks so this is the peacock blog until I get around to fixing the other pictures. This camera tended to blow out the highlights and get the color kind of funny but hey, I had a blast following that bird around.

Okay bird, now turn side ways
We also did some crystal mining in the pouring rain. Found a few nice pieces.
Then we ate out for every meal. There are a lot of good restaurants in Hot Springs.
I would go there on a rainy weekend again. It was fun.
