Arkansas Derby Today at Oaklawn, Hot Springs

akransas-derby1It’s quiet at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn this afternoon, with most of our guests attending the Arkansas Derby today at Oaklawn Jockey Club. Folks at the inn have travelled from Florida, Illinois, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Arkansas to attend the biggest race day of the year for Oaklawn.

The day is splendid, without a cloud in the sky. With spring is bursting forth in radiant splashes of color, with azaleas, dogwoods, cherry blossoms, irises, and even the knockout roses blooming. We could not ask for a more perfect day to spend outside. Best of luck to all of our guests! (We’re told that the horse, Point Lookout, won a race yesterday. Made us happy that our “namesake” won the race.)

Tomorrow: Easter Sunrise service at 7:00 on the Lookout Point labyrinth.
