The beautiful weather has arrived to Oklahoma and we’ve been basking in it!
We’re on the road again but our pace has been slow (even by our standards). We drive only 25-40 miles per day and take the time to explore each city we spend the night in.
In our research we’ve learned that labyrinths are typically of just a few varieties. Many of them are replicas of those found on the floor of churches in Europe. It will be neat to walk each of the different patterns and to also see how the location of each one affects the experience. Our first was in a park surrounded by a peaceful garden. This one, located at Mercy Hospital in OK City, was installed right off the parking lot. Though it is surrounded by some pretty high bushes, it offers a different experience with all that is going on around it.
Did you know that Elk City, OK, is a bird sanctuary?! We didn’t either but there is a sign at the entrance to the city that says so and we tended to believe them.
The city is gracious enough to provide RV electrical hookups free of charge for a four night stay at the lake. You’re welcome to stay longer than that but there will be a charge for each additional night equal to the amount of the citation that you receive (signage states: one citation for each extra night you stay).
The inside of the band shell has become home to a large colony of swallows. They had already abandoned their nests for the year when we arrived but it was still amazing to see so many built in such a small area.
See ya next time…
