around the bend on the spur

Road trips save us from that hopeless "stuck in a maze" feeling we get here in the suburbs. This last shorty trip, no exception.

Road trip norm, for us anyway, involves last-minute planning. Spur of the moment packing o' the equipment. Junk food stock-up. Random direction selection. And away we go!

Our latest adventure took us to Beaver's Bend State Park in Oklahoma.

Naturally, we got to our destination as the sun was downward bound. Seems to be a pattern for us. However, this did not stop us from enjoying the beauty of a stream we found. Nor did it stop the fresh pine air from lifting our spirits just enough.

The day, lovely.
The getting there, sweet. This is the time for touching base with nature, ourselves and with each other.

The ride home, just as precious. In the middle of nowhere, the night sky spilled open.

And whilst I gazed lovingly at the Milky Way, a darkened landscape streaked by, and a sweet child's voice sang softly, "Twinkle, twinkle... little star..."
