Skywatch Friday – A Walk in the Park


This past weekend son Logan and I decided to take a walk around Tulsa’s Lafortune Park. Lafortune Park has a big playground, picnic areas, tennis courts, a high school, baseball parks, and two golf courses with a walking path about 3 miles long winding around it all. 


I didn’t bring my camera, just my cell phone. Luckily there were some pretty decent skies.


Part of the trail was a little muddy. In the 26 years we have lived in Tulsa I bet that I have either walked or run around Lafortune hundreds of times. 


I love pedestrian bridges. Logan is now 20, when he was about 3 he liked to go hide under this bridge and pretend he was a troll. The kid used to drive me crazy!! Perfectly good playground 100 feet away. Oh well. 


There he is. He lags a little behind but it works out because I take pictures and study on things and eventually he catches up to me.

I’m linking with Skywatch Friday.

    It’s more fun to be a troll than to play in the playground. You know that, Dad!

    Have always thought the one thing golf courses are good for is walking. I can hardly believe Logan is 20. Where has the time gone.

    Playgrounds are boring, Dad! I like that your son still walks with you. My brother in law never got into the exercise habit.

    Can’t believe Logan is 20 already! I remember this park – it’s really green right now. Looks like you had some rain. It’s raining where we are in Solana Beach. I’m being a couch potato!

    I always enjoyed it when the kids came up with their own ideas rather than relying on a conventional playground for entertainment – the more outrageous the imagination, the better, I say. Thanks for the intriguing, moody skies in some of these shots – love them!

    I like a walk like that…pretty scenery, nice paths, good memories, and familiar enough you can just surrender to the moment without worrying about where you are and how you’ll get back (the latter more important to someone like me who is directionally challenged than it would be to you and most other intelligent humans).
