A beautiful Sunday with highs in the 80s and bright overcast. Perfect day to take the hard top off the roadster and enjoy a, well, Sunday drive. Today’s road trip took us to Caddo Valley, Arkadelphia, Mountain Pine, the Ouachita National Forest and Hot Springs. It was a great time to try out the new compact digital, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5, a replacement for the well-loved, but flash-dead Sony.
