Here’s Looking At Zoo! The Tulsa Zoo

Some people avoid outdoor activities during the summer months, but we love to get a daily dose of Vitamin D. For our stop at the Tulsa Zoo, we knew it would be best to start early to see the most activity. We arrived at opening time, and met up with Ellen Averill for a quick golf cart tour of the place. Ellen showed us the lay of the land, and explained a lot of the background of the zoo’s rich history. (Thank you Ellen for taking the time to assist us.) With this basic information, we were ready to dive into our day.Continue reading

We find chocolatiers to be a set of unique individuals, with the patience for incredible attention to detail. Each place has its own backstory, and we find them all to be interesting. When I reached out to the owner, Bill Copeland, he graciously invited us for a tour of his facility.Continue reading

Exploring The Woody Guthrie Center

A visit to Tulsa, Oklahoma offers a chance to immerse yourself in the culture of a Midwest city. At the Woody Guthrie Center you can learn about one of America’s greatest folksingers. Our visit occurred on a warm day in August. Of course, most days in August are going to be warm, since we are in the center of the United States. We like to think positive, so we had already prepared ourselves mentally for the weather. It sure beats torrential downpours.Continue reading
