Ever so often, when we go into town, we order a lunch "to go" and drive about a mile out of town to the river to dine out. Through Oklahoma and Arkansas, dams artificially deepen and widen this otherwise modest sized river to build it into a commercially navigable body of water. (completed in 1971) The river is now a series of reservoirs, and sustains commercial barge traffic and offers passenger and recreational use. (Thanks Wikipedia) There is always something interesting to see...boats, barges, and many, many birds of both land and water. On our last visit we encountered a pair of Canadian geese, who seemed to be out for a stroll in the park on a beautiful day.

|Polka Dot Tail seemed to want in on the action too.|
|Oops, I may be getting a bit too close.|
|Time to take wing...|
|And head out over water....|
