So, based on time we did not see the OKC Museum of Art, the Myriad Botanical Gardens, or the American Banjo Museum. Those will have to be for another trip. Instead we headed back to Bricktown and caught a water taxi. The mile long ride is fun and relaxing. Enjoy the murals on the walls, cruise under bridges, and start thinking about where you want to dine. Restaurants and bars line the area. Folks sit outdoors eating and laughing. The area is festive and you are ready to join the party. The taxi continues to cruise to Lower Bricktown and a park where you can see the Oklahoma Land Run Monument. There’s a lot of bronze – it’s impressive. It’s still a work in progress with a final count of forty five figures expected. The horses, cattle, and wagons that are there now are nifty.
Dinner – we ate at a Mardi Gras, New Orleans style restaurant. Very tasty fish tacos, mardi gras nachos, and Cajun fettucine. We rolled out of there.
Onward to baseball – the AAA Oklahoma Dodgers play at a very pleasant ballpark right in the heart of Bricktown. Family friendly and the right price – reasonable. Alas, the Dodgers did not win for us, but we enjoyed a good time.
That is neat what they are doing with the figures. Sounds like a fun time was had.ReplyDelete
It is a dynamic little cityDelete
I would enjoy that water taxi adventure. Sounds like great times!ReplyDelete
Very fun little jauntDelete
Great pictures supplements a good post.ReplyDelete
Oh but there's more to come in future postsDelete
Sorry the Dodgers didn't reign victorious. I grew up shouting "Go Dodger blue!" Steve Garvey (LA Dodgers 1st baseman) was my favorite back in the day. I'm glad you and Ray keep enjoying the good stuff.ReplyDelete
Thanks. We rooted but they did not respond. Fun anywayDelete
I read through the posts I missed, and it looks like you guys saw and did a lot of really cool things while you were in OK. The bronze statues in that land run monument must have been quite a sight to see... like seeing the ghosts of the real thing.ReplyDelete
I hope you got to see the eclipse yesterday. The view was awesome here.
Had fun in NJ visiting friends down the shore. We had a blast. Not too dark but crescent shape was coolDelete
This sounds like fun. I think the water taxi would be a fun and different way to travel. Sorry your team didn't come through for you, but it sounds like you had an enjoyable time.ReplyDelete
Did not have over expectations and OKC exceeded a lot. We will go backDelete
That water taxi sounds like a great ride!ReplyDelete
Short and sweet but fun. You can ride it all day once you have a wrist band- food, bars, patk, etcReplyDelete
