Yesterday afternoon I was determined to drive to Woodward Park to take some photos. This is a seasonal event for me.
Since I’m still not walking very well due to my back and ankle, I told myself not to get too involved with walking far from the car.
Woodward Park Gardens Were Closed:
But when I got there, one of the gates was locked. I was disappointed, as that gate would lead to an area where I could walk down a ramp-like stretch of concrete without having to deal with the steps.
After I managed the length of steps, I found the other gate locked as well. I don’t know what’s going on. I’ve never been there that they were closed.
My right ankle and back are simultaneously causing problems, so maybe it was for the best. Once I get in that place I tend to get carried away.
However I did get some photos of the areas outside the gardens, and I’m displaying a few of them here.
Maybe I’ll call them and find out when the gardens will be open to the public.
The rest of the park had lots of people milling about and enjoying the sun and weather and gorgeous leaves. I drove through those areas but didn’t want to get out among all the people.
Covid is getting a bit out of control in Oklahoma and they say not many beds are left for patients. And I sure don’t want to be one of them.
So then I decided to try Swan Lake. There’s rarely any people milling about there.
I don’t know why I can’t ever find that place. But after a bit of driving around I stumbled upon it. As I always tend to do.
I’d park the car and walk maybe 30 feet and take photos and then drive the car down a bit and do the same thing. I didn’t last long. The fence helped hold me up while I took photos.
Usually I will park my car and walk around the perimeter of the fence housing the large pond.
A Lovely Fall Day:
Oh, how I envy the people who live in the houses around Swan Lake! I’d be taking photos every day.
Then I headed home. It sure was nice to get to see the fall leaves and enjoy the weather and at least get some photos.
I may work on my blog later, so there might be a “doing maintenance” place holder when you come here until I’m finished.
