Our Sunday Drive


Yesterday we took a Sunday drive; something we used to do quite often, but hadn't in a while. It was so good to get out and see some surrounding countryside. We did over 160 miles!

These first few pictures are of Lake Eufaula, which is really a big resort and private lake homes area here in Oklahoma. The lake has 600 miles of shore line and 102,000 surface acres. It is on the Canadian River; it is the largest lake in Oklahoma and the 15th largest lake in the U.S.A.

This picture - above- is on the "Dam Road" and was just before we crossed the dam. That is the river area.

This picture -above- is in front of the dam. And what I could see (and the picture) is just the tip of the iceberg so to speak!

This picture -above- is one part of the lake separated by a one lane bridge going in to a little "town" called Porum Landing. The one below is the other side of the bridge.

The following pictures I took out the window of the van as we were traveling along. The road offered a beautiful view of the hills and trees of the surrounding area.

We stopped along the way in the "big city" of McAlester and had lunch at Wendy's. Also went to Lowe's and bought some paint to do the shower walls in the guest bathroom as they were all yellow from the old water. And got a big bag of planting dirt so we can get some tomatoes in the ground - or pots! All in all, it was a great afternoon. I hope we do it more often, but that depends on gas prices!!

Be sure to thank the Lord for your blessings. Until next time take care and God Bless you.
