My World

Crystal Beach Park in Woodward, is a favourite spot throughout the year for picnics, cookouts, fishing, walking, tennis, golf or visiting the ducks. Brand new playground equipment for all ages is available, along with plenty of outdoor cooking areas and now they are building a new water park for fun in the summer heat.

On Sunday the Hubster and I decided to take advantage of the fabulous weather and have a picnic there ourselves. We sat at the side of the beautiful lake in about 78 degree sunshine and just admired the view, including those infamous Seagulls!

Crystal Beach is the site of some big local events every year, including the Elks Rodeo for over 70 years and Crystal Christmas, when they light the whole park with Christmas lights. It is a great leisure amenity for the whole town and enjoyed by all of us locally.

Nice pictures Sarah.

Pretty soon it will be warm enough here for a picnic. Until that time, I'll enjoy your photos.

Louise said...

I LOVE these photos!!! The first and last absolutely take my breath away. The blue, blue sky, the wisps of clouds, the wonderful skeleton trees. Absolutely fantastic!

Swarna said...

Nice spot - my favourite kind to laze in, especially if it is as silent as it looks - I won't mind the seagulls at all though!

Janie said...

Ah, 78 degrees. I feel warmer just thinking about it. Looks like a wonderful park for an afternoon outing.

Janet said...

It looks like a lovely location for a picnic. We too have had weather in the 70's and 80's the past few days, despite the snow last weekend. Severe thunderstorms were forecast today - but didn't happen. Maybe tomorrow. :-)

Flea said...

How beautiful! There's nothing quite like an Oklahoma sky, is there?

antigoni said...

We all love picnics and this place looks fantastic for a picnic. Your photos are amazing.
The only thing that baklava and galaktoboureko have the same is the pastry. The baklava has peanuts inside but the galaktoboureko has creme with semolina, eggs, milk, sugar and butter.

I'm starting to get the Oklahoma sky thing! Beautiful place to have a picnic! Life qualitish!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Nice place for a picnic! 78° sounds kinda warm for March. Don't you wish you could have picnicked in snow and below freezing temperatures? ;-)

Kay said...

This really sounds like a perfect day with the Hubster. That's such a beautiful setting.

SandyCarlson said...

I would love to see a rodeo. That looks like a very beautiful spot.

Reader Wil said...

Crystal Beach Park looks so inviting to me, that I almost fancy myself sitting there and have a picnic! Thanks!

fishing guy said...

Sarah: It looks like a neat place but the lack of rain sure has browned it out.

Carole said...

Looks like a great place for a relaxing picnic. :)

pamokc said...

Forget scenery. I almost called you when I saw Melissa showed up on Dancing with the Stars!!!! I was rolling knowing what you were thinking about her!!!!! But hey, she did pretty well for 48 hours notice!!!! Hope all is well with you guys.

Carver said...

That looks like the perfect place for a weekend. We had a warm weekend too. Nice to get signs of spring coming. Great shots. I love those big trees.

John said...

Looks like a great place. Thanks for sharing.

soulbrush said...

Snippety Gibbet said...

It's so fascinating seeing your photos of Oklahoma. I really had no idea of what it looks like out there on the plains.

Almost American said...

Nice photos! However, I have to admit, although I might like to visit, I'd have a hard time living anywhere that flat!

Ruth said...

I love those blue, sunny skies!

Rhea said...

A lovely spot for a picnic! Did you get to people watch? I love watching other people and their pets...

willow said...
