Saturday through Sunday, April 11-May 31, 2020—A New Normal?

Social distancing, exam gloves, sheltering in place—this is what we are doing, at least for the time being. We miss family, friends, church, in-restaurant dining, and other social gatherings. Kay is playing lots of golf, and does our shopping and “going”, ordering groceries online and enjoying Kroger and Walmart’s pick-up services. We use Amazon Prime extensively, receiving packages almost everyday. Thank goodness for internet! 

Though playing less golf, and no pickleball, I have been increasingly making photographs, enjoying Hot Springs Village’s hiking trails and natural areas (though these are increasingly crowded), and visiting great places relatively close in Arkansas: Flanagan Prairie and Cherokee Prairie Nature Areas near Charleston, Mount Magazine State Park, Middle Fork Barrens Nature Area near the Village, Holla Bend National Wildlife Refuge near Dardanelle, Winona Scenic Drive in Ouachita National Forest, Bell Slough Wildlife Management Area, Lake Catherine State Park, Simpson Preserve at Trap Mountain, Camp Robinson Special Use Area, Warren Prairie Nature Area, and Kingsland Prairie Nature Area.

Links to photos taken this year since our return from Arizona in early March through the end of June are as follows:
