2020 – The year of COVID. I was scheduled to travel to Nashville in mid-March when the pandemic shutdown began. So no travelling this spring. I made reservations for the 4th of July weekend at one of my favorite RV parks in Little Rock, Arkansas. The Downtown Riverside RV Park is owned and operated by North Little Rock and is perched right on the Arkansas River. They have 61 sites. 15 of the sites are riverfront.
So I reserved a riverfront site a few months ago and I was looking forward to viewing the 4th of July fireworks that they set off from a bridge over the river right next to the RV park. A week before the holiday, they cancelled the event due to COVID concerns.
I decided to go ahead and come just to get out of town for a few days. I had a hair appt this morning. My first since February. Boy did I need it. So I left home at 11:00am. I drove 355 miles thru the heat with two short stops. I backed in to my spot at 6:00pm. It was hot and humid. I unhitched, hooked up water and electric, turned on the air conditioner in the trailer and left to get a few things while the trailer hopefully got cooler. It was well over 90 degrees and way too humid.
Look at the big boy that pulled in next to me….
Here are a couple of photos of my view….
About 8:30pm it started thundering and eventually a pretty good little storm came along.
I took a few photos before the storm.
