Day 3 of 16

We had a great but long day. We started the day with the Duck March at the Peabody Hotel in Little Rock, Arkansas. After packing up everything, we went out to the Duck Palace overlooking the Arkansas River. The Duck Palace wasn't as nice as Orlando or Memphis. We have never seen a 11am Duck March before, we also go to the evening 5 pm march. These ducks seemed real anxious to get into the fountain, maybe because there was food :) After the Duck March we headed for Oklahoma and a long day of driving (over 600 miles).
 
Once in Oklahoma we stopped at Sequoyah's 1829 Log Cabin. He was a Cherokee Indian that invented the written language for the Cherokee and that the big trees in California are named after. Not sure what the connection is, but it was an interesting little stop.
 
After that we were back on the road again heading to Oklahoma City National Memorial. A very touching and well done memory to the 168 people that lost their lives in 1995. A must see if in the area. The non-planned displays really added allot to the memorial, like the kid's artwork, the fence and the Jesus across the street where a church once stood. I only wish we would have been there at night to see the chairs lit up.
 
After we left the memorial we headed a few blocks away to a large Milk Bottle on top of a small building. We passed one of those Art Buffalo on the road. We had the Lizarts in Orlando, TurtleArt in Tampa, and HorseArt in Ocala, FlamingoArt in Miami and Long HornArt in Fort Worth, Tx.
 
Finally we headed just south of Norman, OK for the spider Bug which we had seen on the net. Got some cool pictures of this next to a VW parts store. After a few photos we finally headed for Texas for the night arriving at the hotel around 1 am in Amarillo.

Record Journal Building, across the street from from the Murrah Building, they left this building the way it looked after the blast, so people could see the damage.  100's of people were injured in this building.
