Bricktown Riverwalk

Bricktown Riverwalk

We hit the highlites of this city as we are focused on heading north to Iowa.  Friday we arrived at the Elks in Midwest City for our weekend stay in Oklahoma.  A fun Elks lodge where we enjoyed Steak & Shrimp and Karoke.  We are the only RV staying here so it will be a quiet weekend.  So far the weather seems to be tolerable so we are excited to get out and see the city.

Saturday we headed downtown to see the Oklahoma City National Memorial,  a very powerful reminder that life can be unpredictable no matter where you are.

Paul downloaded a narative of the architects who designed this memorial.  It is very interesting listening to their vision.  I really am in awe of the chairs, a visual reminder of the lives that were lost.

Oklahoma City seems to be putting a lot of resources into their downtown with Bricktown.  They have a very nice riverwalk around lots of fun restaurants, stadiums and parks.
