Skywatch Friday – Visiting the Kid on Sunday

Last Sunday we motored from Tulsa down to Chickasha to visit Logan at college. He’s doing very well down there but we need to go see him anyway.

We ate at this very decent Mexican Food restaurant. We all had burritos! It was a lot, in fact it was my last meal of the day.

And then we took advantage of the weather and went to Chickasha’s Shannon Springs Park. It is a great place with walking tracks and playgrounds and that big western Oklahoma sky.

Way back in the day the springs were a water stop on the Chisholm Trail. It was probably was not near as nice with hundreds of cattle standing around and in the water but very important.

The sun was shining and the air was warm but not hot.

Some of the trees look like they are getting read to turn colors.

Heather and Logan found a cool swing that you could make go by pushing your feet. We all three tried it for a little while.

And we found what I call a hippie bridge. Kind of racy for small town Oklahoma. It’s not too small a town as we went to the big Walmart to get the kid stocked up on supplies. You know, snacks and pizza. I’m surprised he doesn’t have pizza squeezing out his ears.

And then back to the dorm and saying goodbye!! It was a great visit.

    Alan – so glad to see your son is doing well at college. There is no substitute for seeing them face to face, right? And a good burrito is bonus!

    Quite a swing, never seen similar. Not even in photos. Sounds like you had some good times in that lovely surroundings. Keep you and yours Safe!

    Aw, it’s nice that you paid a visit to your son and bought him some food snacks. I’m quite sure he is happy about having some snacks on hand. Chickasha looks like a peaceful and lovely place.

    Logan is quite the young man, and I’m so happy he is able to enjoy college (fingers crossed that it doesn’t have to close down prematurely). Also happy that you were able to visit and replenish his pizza/snack stash. Love the WPA plaque, the hippie bridge, and the history behind that park. Yes, fall is here!
