Fairfield Bay, Arkansas

This past weekend, we flew down South for a family reunion in "The Natural State."  Per the website, Fairfield Bay is "nestled in the Ozark Mountains and situated on the north shores of the pristine Greers Ferry Lake."  Although we did not do any hiking, fishing, etc we did enjoy the amenities.

We flew into Little Rock airport on Friday afternoon and after securing a rental car drove out to Fairfield Bay to check into condominiums at Club Wyndham.  These were nice properties with a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a living room.  13 of us shared 3 condominiums close to each other.  That evening we enjoyed Indian food that my Mom prepped at home and we re-heated on site.

Saturday morning we went over to the rec center for basketball.  We had a surprisingly spirited 4 on 4 game.  That afternoon we went over to the pool and also played some cards.  We cooked chicken and turkey burgers for dinner.  We also played the videos wishing my Dad a happy 80th birthday and cut a cake.

On Sunday, we started off playing tennis.  The courts were really nice, but it got really hot.  Next was miniature golf which was surprisingly fun.  I had originally wanted to play disc golf, but mini golf was better as it was shaded and the course was quite challenging.  That night we rented a 25' Avalon Catalina Cruise Funship for $125/hr which seemed very reasonable to me.  Jet skis and smaller boats were available at the Fairfield Bay Marina as well.  We spent a couple of hours cruising around and splashing in the water..  That night we did pizza for dinner.

Monday we packed up and headed out.  Check out was 10:00 AM and they did start cleaning rooms quite quickly.  The 3.5 hour drive to Germantown was uneventful.  We stayed a night in Germantown and flew home to Denver on Tuesday.

The flights back Tuesday were a little rough with Southwest playing catch up after canceling and delaying several flights.
