Home again

We took a brief vacation this week.  Following a doctor visit on Tuesday, we headed east on 412 toward Branson.  We stopped in Springdale at the Western Sizzlin' steakhouse for our evening meal.  North of Harrison, AR we got on Highway 65 and drove north to Branson.  We stayed at the Comfort Inn just off the 76 strip.  We spent two night there.  They have a good breakfast of scrambled eggs and sausage (included in the room price).  What's more, they sell tickets to Silver Dollar City.  For the price of a one-day admission to SDC, you could get a two-day ticket.  So that is what we did.

WorldFest was going on while we were there.  We heard Peruvian musicians, an all-female mariachi band from Mexico, and the Russian Festival Orchestra.  We also heard a traditional bluegrass band and saw a group of African acrobats.  I took many pictures and will post some later.

Thursday afternoon we drove to Springfield and spent the night with my parents. 

I will continue this later.
