Sunday on the move again driving to Tulsa only 47 miles away.

Sunday afternoon headed out to Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness where you can get on a walking trail alongside the Arkansas River, we walked about 4 miles, where we came across another long thin green snake, white tailed deer and a red shouldered hawk.

Monday off to Tulsa downtown ( Tulsa is known as The Oil Capital City of the World) we walked miles around all the different streets looking at all the Art Deco buildings and went into many lobbies of them too as we were told they were very ornate. The Old & the New all alongside each other Art Deco & Sky Scrapers.

We went into the Pythian, Atlas, Philtower, Philcade,Kennedy & Tulsa Union Depot Buildings as well as many others. The Mayo hotel was another we visited and while there we stopped for drinks in their café, the girl that served us had been to Beer & Lyme Regis and was starting at Art School in London soon.

The Williams Towers are the tall black glass buildings.

The Philtower was built in 1927 and was the tallest building in Oklahoma when completed.

We also walked to the Methodist Church a very impressive Art Deco Spire, the outside of the church was very grand but the inside was disappointing .

Back in the car to drive to E 21st Street to see the Golden Driller a very tall Oil Man which stood 76ft tall, his shoe size is 393-DDD and his helmet is size 112, his belt measures 48ft, he has been there since 1966.

It hit 91 degrees today and sure felt like it too.
