Medicine Park - 4

We walked through town, walked the length of the Bath Lake Park, and then had lunch at the Old Plantation and dined in the dance hall.  The Plantation is still famous for their steak and fish dinners where the meat may hang off both edges of the plate.   In 1960, Rex and Ruby Leath purchased the Old Plantation from the Texas Land Company.  Rex was usually found in the kitchen, and Ruby, known to everyone as Grandma, would either be found at a table talking with guests, or sitting in her rocking chair by the fireplace.  Her rocking chair still sits where she left it.  This refers to the picture of the fireplace and rockers in Medicine Park – 3.  The Old Plantation was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

This caught my eye right away.  It is not only a beautiful home, but
what a nice way to have the canoe ready to quickly drop in the creek.
I do hope they spray it with 303 Aerospace UV Protectant.  This
Oklahoma sun can be murder.  

Our standards for proper language have been under such constant attack,
I didn't think anyone maintained any propriety any more, making me happy
to see this sign.

There were several nice pieces of metal sculpture in town, like this
peace pipe.  Notice the nice mural in the background.

A sunfish swimming among some cattails.

Jean particularly likes this one---a copper mountain lion on a copper
boulder.  It is also called a puma, cougar, panther, or catamount
depending on locale and the indigenous language its name comes from.
