I can’t believe it is already October! I was running this morning with neighbors (yes, me), and realized how wonderfully cool it was. When the sun eventually came up, I saw how fantastic the Governor’s Mansion District of the Quapaw Quarter looks bathed in sunlight. The houses are truly splendid. And it did make the pain of running at 6:30 am a little more bearable. But, October?
Arkansas really knows how to do October. There are just so many outdoor activities, and the festivals! As the temperatures drop down to the fabulous range, Arkansans come out of the air conditioning.
On Saturday, the 6th, there are the Junction Bridge Regatta Sailboat Exhibition Races.
