Rain and Friends

West Siloam Springs, Oklahoma
Natural Falls State Park, Site 23
Weather Condition; High 77 Low 62, RAIN

Thankfully it rained here today. This area has been hit so hard by drought that many of the mature trees are dead or dying. The ground is covered with leaves as if it is late fall.

We haven’t done anything today but enjoy the sound of the rain falling.

We have enjoyed a pleasant laid back stay here at Natural Falls State Park. We have shared meals with our friends Bud and Bette and visited the Cherokee Casino in Siloam Springs one afternoon. We had lunch at the Buffet restaurant. After lunch, we all went our separate ways to the play the slots.

Dawn left with the same 20 she went in with and I left leaving my 20 behind!

Bud didn’t win but Bette did.
Bud and Bette pull out tomorrow and we pull out on Wednesday.

We are sad to see them leave but we know we will be seeing them again in a few months at Rockport for the winter. 

This is different!


  1. I rained all day here..I can almost see the grass greening up..We sure will miss you two this year in Rockport!! We hope to go to Florida after Xmas, but we have an elderly aunt and uncle, ages 89 and 97 who are in need of much assistance...Our plans could fall through...Such is life eh??? Have a Marguerita at our favorite bar for us!!!!

  2. We got a little rain last night too. It sure cooled things off.

  3. Sad to see the trees dying for lack of rain. Maybe Issac will throw some much needed water your way.
