We finally got talking to the Nanna and son at breakfast who we are always bumping in to. We threw our clothes on - made ourselves a waffle and sat out by the pool for the morning, before getting ready for a hefty 5hour journey. After looking at both our books we soon realised there wasn't anything we really wanted to see in Springfield or Oklahoma …
So after lunch in Tulsa we travelled to our final stop but not before visiting the bronze sculpture dedicated to an avid Route 66 fan (I cant rem his name). The final journey ended in Oklahoma city at a lovely hotel. In the evening we had time to chill out and there was even karaoke in the bar ;-) Tomorrow we spend the day seeing the city and the …
The drive to Oklahoma City was a bit more interesting. We made some more stops along the way, hitting Red Rock Canyon State Park in Hinton, OK and finding an interesting sign that made us lock our doors. We also caught a really nice sunset while on the road. We made it to OK City by nightfall and was able to visit the OK Bombing Memorial. I wasn't …
