#266 – Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2019 – OKC National Memorial and OKC Museum of Art

So the weather was supposed to be beautiful today and then drop like a rocket tomorrow to cold, wind and rain.  So I still don’t feel well and haven’t slept well for four nights.  I had planned on visiting six places over the two days here.  I decided to start with the top two on my list.

I drove to downtown OKC to visit the National Memorial.  They have an indoor museum and the outdoor memorial.  I chose not to visit the indoor memorial.  It was a nice sunny day but very windy (blowing that pollen all around).  It is a very nice tribute to the 168 people killed at 9:02 am on April 19, 1995.

After a little lunch I visited Oklahoma City Museum of Art to view the Dale Chihuly art glass permanent collection they have here.  Here are a few photos from the display.

It was a very nice exhibit and they had a great film showing him and how they make the various types of glass.

It was 3:30 when I was done there and I was just exhausted and don’t feel well at all.

I decided to throw in the towel, stopped for some groceries and headed for the EggCamper.  The temperature reached 74 degrees today and was sunny and windy all day.
