Cruising on the Belle of the Ozarks! “Eureka” in Eureka Springs!

eureka buttonHow would you like to relax on a 1 hour & 15 min. Beaver Lake Cruise. You can see the spectacular Beaver Lake’s shoreline, an island wildlife sanctuary, and learn about numerous historical and natural points of interest aboard the Belle of the Ozarks. The sis, her hubby, The MOM, and I did just that during our ‘Eureka’ in Eureka Springs trip. We found this a real nice and comfortable cruise with beautiful sights. Cost us about 100 dollars for the four of us, but is surely something you need to do at least once. I can tell you all about it but I think I will show you some of our trip.

We arrived a little early and got our seats.

100_4202-tile The water here is quite clear…

100_4218 There is a buoy marking the top of an under water mountain. About 6 feet down you can still see the foundation of an old homestead.

100_4222-tile Then you must see the top side of Beaver Dam.

    What a beautiful experience, I am a little scared to ride on a ship or boat of any kind these days, not sure why as my Dad and I grew up fishing on boats and off boats. I love the views you get from a boat, the ones you shared are amazing.
