With Chicago in the rear view mirror it was time to head to Branson, Missouri. The first day was a quiet one on Sunday, Oct. 29th. Day 2 we cruised around a bit and managed to catch some Great Blue Herons fishing for dinner. On Hallowe’en it was off to Arkansas and the beautiful, historic town of Eureka Springs. Then a couple days around Branson, a Beatles cover band show and a dinner/ show cruise around Table Rock Lake on the Showboat Branson Belle before heading for Texas down Route 66.
Another quiet day around Branson. Then a dinner cruise around the shores of Table Lake on the "Showboat Branson Belle". This is a genuine paddle wheeler showboat. The lake, by the way, is a man made lake created by the dam built in 1956. It is 70 miles long, over 250 feet deep with over 800 miles of beautiful shoreline.
Well, we finished the journey to Holly Lake Ranch, Texas. A few shots along the way and then some around the resort. The area is beautiful, with a little lake, golf course and forest. However, the room leaves a lot to be desired and the internet is very poor.
