July 4 2017 - friends and art

The Phactors are spending the holiday and a bit more with some of our oldest friends, the Texans.  We've visited Eureka Springs, a sort of funky place (the cabins associated with the Crescent Hotel are great), and Crystal Bridges, the American art museum in nearby Bentonville. The museum itself is quite amazing, and free, and a totally world-class museum (it's a fantastic use of Walton money), but they have a Dale Chihuly glass exhibit going on that occupied not only several galleries, but a dozen or so locations on the expansive grounds surrounding the museum.  This is definitely worth seeing in our opinion.  The image is a portion of one outdoor installation, some of which use dozens of pieces of glass.  And the Arkansas early July weather cooperated, but even still the yummy  adult (alcohol laced) peach popcycle TPP bought from a cool food truck was to die for.  This would be a great franchise to get the rights to.  Hopefully this image of royal fern with Chihuly purple glass reeds won't get TPP in trouble.  If TPP had Walton money, he'd have such a garden display.  Go see the rest. Some totally free advice. The links are worth exploring.
