Livin’ on Tulsa Time

While our recent visit to Tulsa, Oklahoma, was brief, we certainly experienced wonderful attractions and beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

Fortunately during our stay, Guthrie Green in Tulsa’s Brady Arts District was hosting Food Truck Wednesday.  What a pleasure to see families enjoying the beautiful green lawn, water features, live music, and delectable culinary delights. Dan enjoyed chicken strips and fries from one of the trucks while I opted for Kimchee Fries with Candied Bacon from the Lone Wolf Banh Mi Food Truck (www.lonewolftruck.com). Excellent!Tulsa downtownBy far one of my favorite places to photograph since our visit to the Grand Canyon was the Philbrook Museum of Art, especially the gardens. We had no real expectations when our daughter suggested we visit the Philbrook. While the weather was hot, we strolled through the gardens as if it were a cool spring day. We found something beautiful at every turn from sculptured lawns to art sculptures, the Philbrook didn’t disappoint. I’ve visited many botanical gardens but these gardens exceeded those by far.  Of course, having my favorite blue skies with white clouds always adds to the outdoor beauty.Philbrook Gardens 1The variety of flowers provided even more beauty to the vast acreage the gardens had to offer.Philbrook 2While the gardens were captivating, the architecture and artwork in the museum, formerly a 72-room mansion belonging to the family of Waite Phillips offered even more eye candy for us to enjoy.  We were in awe of the woodwork, painted ceilings, and stained glass in the house. Philbrook ArchitectureI enjoyed the Asian, African, American, and Decorative art but my favorite by far was the European art. My favorite room featured various works of the Madonna and Child. They were truly breathtaking.Philbrook ArtWe’ll be back again in Tulsa and hope to see even more of the city. In the meantime, if you’re interested in things to do in the city, visit their website – http://www.VisitTulsa.com.

We hope to see you on the road as we continue to travel in our RV, living simply and loving life. Safe Travels!
