What A Beautiful Day

Full Moon Bridge

After a week of snow and record low temperatures, Saturday was an incredible day. With blue skies, sunshine, and a 60 degree temperature, It was a perfect day. My sister and her daughters are here visiting and we were able to spend the day with them.

We spent the day in Hot Springs, Arkansas. In the morning we attended church at the Hot Springs Seventh-day Adventist Church. We spent the afternoon at Garvin Woodland Gardens. Even though it is too early in the year for anything to be in bloom, the gardens were still beautiful and it was a great place to spend the day outdoors.




Although we have been to Garvin Woodland Gardens many times, today was the first time we were able to visit the Anthony Chapel that is located at the gardens. It is a very popular place to have a wedding, and is usually being used when we visit. It is a very beautiful chapel that gives you the feeling of worshiping outdoors.

On our way back home the sun was going down and the sunset was breathtaking. I stopped beside the road near Oden, Arkansas to take some photos. It was a perfectly beautiful ending to a beautiful day!

  1. Gorgeous photos, Rich. What beautiful surroundings to spend a sunny, warm day. :)

  2. Wonderful photos of and at Garvin Gardens, Richard, and the sunset is spectacular. I've been to the gardens only twice, while visiting with my sister who lives in Hot Springs Village. It's a remarkable place. Love your photos of the inside of the chapel.

    With the temperature here today in the 60's, it's hard to believe that less than a week ago we had deep snow.

  3. Indeed a wonderfully perfect day, I would say.
    That chapel is just amazing!!!

  4. How wonderful that the day was so lovely when your sister visited you!

  5. What a wonderful day. The pics are great!
