8:10 am After much debate and hysterics (okay… just debate) we decided to plan for an indoor type day.  Weather is predicted to be rain with severe thunderstorms.  We have a few options and will see what the day brings. 10:45 am Had breakfast/lunch out today.  Went to IHOP.  We enjoyed it very much even though they seemed to be out of many things.  Next stop was the Hot Springs Visitor Center.  Then we went to the Fordyce Bath House.  The Fordyce is part of the National Park and is set up as a museum and visitor center.  We bought a couple of growlers and filled them with some of the Hot Springs mineral water. 4:50 pm After the National Park we went to the Mid-America Science Museum.  We saw a large snapping turtle.  Also a demonstration of a Tesla Coil and a Van de Graaff Generator.  They didn’t seem to want to turn up the generator so nobody’s hair really stood on end.  A little disappointing.  But the museum was very interesting.  We tried to go to Wright’s Rock Shop.  We found the building but the place was closed.  Not even 5 pm and closed.  Bummer. 6:40 pm Back at timeshare.  Had a very nice dinner at Salsa’s Mexican Grill.  It is a local, family owned Mexican restaurant.  The food was very good and the prices were reasonable.
