Pensacola Dam Stop

Grand River Project 1940

Long, narrow road across the dam. Lots of water on one side and a long drop on the other. 

Lunch Stop

Vinita, OK and Clantons cafe. The place to be for lunch (and a piece of pie to go).

Overhead OK

Grove, Oklahoma and Grand Lake.

Earlier in the day...

Here is my 4th rental SUV for these family visits to Oklahoma, Kansas & surrounding states.  Escapes here and here and a Jeep (that one came with waves from other Jeep drivers).   Fun for the drives, and, no, it's not all flat!

The New Plan

Our new inspiration, a beach in Spain.
"Whatcha doing?"   "Moving this rock I keep hitting with the mower."
And we have new additions to our rock collection.  The big one took two boards to lever it out. One more rock to go from the former blackberry bramble.  I recommended adding more dirt instead.

What's it called?

This fragrant rose (?) is a volunteer.  The bees like it too.   Do you know what it is called?

A little destruction can be good for the gardener.  One less blackberry bramble, now cut and mowed.

It started a few weeks ago with just a little trimming between these two trees.  We just kept going to the left, until the rain started.  One more weekend and it was done.
