Memorial Day 2020 Weekend Getaway Beavers Bend State Park

We finally went on a road trip on Memorial Day weekend. We drove back to Oklahoma to spend a couple of days in Broken Bow and visited Beavers State Park. It has been a family tradition every year. We love the place more and more every time we visit.

This visit was mostly to do exploring and hiking along the river. Because it’s the start of the Summer Break, there are so many visitors to the lake. We couldn’t even find a parking spot close to the swimming areas. So we just enjoyed the cold water at the spillway.

It’s always fun to explore especially when you are with family and friends. You build strong bond together sharing stories that bring happiness to your soul.

We’re all aware that travel situations are not gonna be the same. Always be cautious and keep your health and safety a priority.

Can’t Wait To Travel

Hello May! It’s Friday and it’s a very beautiful day for a road trip. But we still have some work to do at home. I thought we will be done with all our tasks before lunchtime so we could go out of town. Nope.

My dear husband had to send over a big chunk of file to his group. My darling daughter had to do quizzes. Me? Well, I had to catch up with a few chores in the house.

Texas is re-opening selected businesses and establishments with limitation, of course, and following the State and CDC’s safety and health guidelines. We can’t wait to travel. I hope and pray this COVID-19 pandemic will soon be over.

Road Trips Are Calling

Subaru Outback 2017

This gorgeous SUV is ready for a road trip. We are ready for a road trip. We can’t wait to go on a mini vacation until this Shelter-in-Place is lifted. We have been in this “stay home” situation for about a month now. As soon as we came back from Oklahoma City after buying the Subaru Outback on the 13th of March, we were on quarantine because of the COVID-19 pandemic. No family visits, no parties with friends, no restaurant dine-ins, and no play time at the parks. And social distancing is a must with a minimum of six feet distance. All sporting and seasonal events are cancelled. Doctors’ appointments are rescheduled. It’s difficult be it’s NEEDED for our SAFETY and HEALTH. It’s a worldwide issue and we have to cooperate because we’re all in this together.

Hopefully, sooner than later, this will end so we can be with our families and friends again. We’ll be driving our Subaru Outback visiting everyone. 🙂
