Our Location: Natural Falls State Park, Colcord, OK
We slept well and woke to coolish temperatures but the sun warmed everything up. Coffee and breakfast to start the day followed by a quick visit with Ron & Sharon to set our plans for the day.
|That is us over there in the trees.|
Riley and I went for a walk to see the falls and then followed the signs for the Ghost Coon Trail. It was a couple of miles around the trail, a bit up and down but scenic. It followed along the bluff for a while and we could look down into the ravine for about half the trail.

Back home we rested for a bit before Ron came by to tell us that friends Billy & Sharlene were near by. We had made plans yesterday to meet today for lunch. Ron & Sharon, Riley and I climbed into Ron’ s truck heading into Siloam Springs to meet our other friends.

We meet up with Billy & Sharlene at the Rib Cage. We haven’t seen them for a couple of years as well. Sharlene has been going through a very rough time as she’s finally finished her chemo for breast cancer, and will be taking radiation soon. She has suffered a stroke as well in the last number of months. Billy has had the same knee replaced about 4 times but is doing a bit better now. Although both are walking with canes, they seem able to get around pretty well.
After lunch we came back to the park and sat around for a couple of hours chatting and catching up, telling some stories and just doing what friends do. It was such a wonderful visit and we were both very happy to see Billy & Sharlene.

Riley and I spent another half hour or so with Ron & Sharon after Billy & Sharlene left before coming home for the rest of the day. The sunlight and fresh air seemed to play a trick on us and we’ve been finding ourselves very tired today. So a quiet night for us at home.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had a fantastic day.
