CAMP MEME 2011 DAY 6
Day 6 of Camp Meme took us to Rockport to see the limestone outcroppings in the Ouachita River, observed in 1804 by the Dunbar-Hunter Expedition, reminding Dunbar of his native Scotland. Wylie & Miles threw rocks and sticks into the swift-running river, waded in the chilly water, and befriended a terrapin. Then we lunched in the pavilion on the other side of the river, read some more Treasure Island, enjoyed some Baskin Robbins in Rockport, played in the Malvern city park, and headed back to base. Took a detour to buy a few pounds of delicious fresh peaches at 5K Orchards near Donaldson. Back home Meme & boys changed into swimming togs and had another afternoon at the pool. Delicious leftovers-- 1st leftovers of the week-- for dinner. More Treasure Island, and a well-deserved good night's sleep!
