Arkansas 2019 Part 2

Post by Roanoker »

This barrel can’t make up its mind what to hold.
Image

This cart has it figured out.
Image

Looking for food so soon.
Image

I like Mahomes, too.
Image

Where are we?
Image

Ladies from the past.
Image

Typical street in Silver Dollar City.
Image

Which way should we go?
Image

I wonder who lives here.
Image

Pretty flower in a tree.
Image

Lavender blue, dilly dilly.
Image

Where's the kitchen?

In case you haven’t noticed, I have not posted any pictures for a while. I had surgery on my right wrist, and I haven’t been able to do much. Then I got way behind. I will ignore all the groans and continue.

We are continuing to stroll around Silver Dollar City, looking at old buildings like this one.
Image

This is a tall one.
Image

We got to go into this one.
Image

A shot from the other side.
Image

Had to do something to get the portrait-oriented image into a landscape. It took a while to clip away.
Image

Cluck cluck squawk!
Image

Time for school!
Image

This lady used to be a real teacher.
Image

One side of the school room.
Image

The other side.
Image

One of many stores.
Image

We’re in an ice cream parlor, I think.

Always climbing.
Image

Not sure what this building is for.
Image

Many streets to trek.
Image

Armed services are honored on this box.
Image

Watching candy being made is always fun.
Image

That’s a big pan of fudge.
Image

Testing the strands.
Image

And it is fun to watch glass being made.
Image

Some of the results, which may be purchased.
Image

Saw mill? Maybe not used as such today.
Image

Pay no attention.
Image

My husband didn’t put his face all the way through the hole, so I had to distort it to force it in. I lightened my face and dress.

Who is hungry? Or thirsty?
Image

Again. Must be close to mealtime.
Image

We’re waiting for the real train. This is just a model, across from the station.
Image

We’re on the train now. I’m snapping pictures of whatever is below the trestle.
Image

Rollercoaster dumping ground.
Image

Leaning out of the window to catch the side of the train, trying to avoid getting slapped by a tree.
Image

Waiting for the show to start.
Image

Still waiting...
Image

It’s shew time!
Image

He wanted money during the train robbery, but I took his picture instead.
Image

The portrait-oriented image is on the left. I pieced together portions of it to fill in the right side.
Image

I call this little one a baby lion. Isn’t he cute?

If you have ever been on the Flooded Mine ride, you might remember this scene.
Image

Ka-boom!
Image

Come to this face-painting booth if you want to look like a cat.
Image

Everybody wanted to touch this water-fountain ball.
Image

Perhaps a mom/kid discussion at the Exposition sign.
Image

Waiting for passengers, no doubt.
Image

Black-eyed Susans making a show.
Image

Baby roller coaster.
Image

Flying elephants like blue skies. So do I.
Image

In case you like to get sick...
Image

Big family.
Image

Even bigger.

Make it happen.
Image

This woman finally figured out why she was invited to visit Sliver Dollar City with her children and grandchildren.
Image

Do you have a lapel?
Image

Too many to count.
Image

So where are the crates?
Image

They have a place in the sun.
Image

Can’t hold any more.
Image

He looks like a criminal, but he is not a criminal.
Image

It will be a LONG wait.
Image

So, Kansas is 102 miles from this spot. As the crow flies?
Image

If you have to fill a bucket...
Image

As if in flight.

This one had me thinking. Why doesn't St. Louis have an Olympics/World's Fair theme park?

i mean, thats basically what forest park with the missouri history museum, zoo, art museum, worlds fair pavilion, etc etc etc is. that is all legacy stuff (or was invested in in anticipation or as a result of) from the worlds fair.

in any case, forest park highlands used to be exactly what you are talking about, and if i recall six flags has or used to have a worlds fair theme? its been a while since ive been.

Even the sides of buildings in Silver Dollar City are charming.
Image

Window box overflows.
Image

Bucket of flowers.
Image

Where’s Rin?
Image

He is not so big after all.
Image

Took a few pictures in the gift store while waiting for my son to emerge from Marvel Cave.
Image

His return train has finally arrived!
Image

Almost Christmassy.
Image

Hiding in the bucket.
Image

Wall mural caught on the way out.
Image

How could we resist the temptation?
Image

Good place to visit. We did that years ago.
