Solemn Hollow

This is My Happy Place, this is where a part of my heart will always be.

My kids ran, played, explored, fished and hunted on this 47 acres on Lake Hudson for eleven years, Two of them came straight from the hospital to call this home.

They learned so much about life and life lessons from the great outdoors here and acquired a love for nature.

This is Spavinaw Creek, the town of Spavinaw Oklahoma is a short drive and is the Birthplace of Mickey Mantle.

Following the Trail of Tears (1839) Eastern Cherokees began arriving in the area. Before the lake was made, they say along the original creek bed that runs next to these bluffs was an Indian Village.

When they would let the water down to make repairs we would find Arrowheads and various artifacts left behind by the Native Americans.

I’ve always found this area to be very beautiful & peaceful, I call it my little piece of heaven.

I have a waterfront subdivision that I developed when I was thirty and named it for the Hollow that runs through it.  Solemn Hollow  Such an appropriate name!

Also I still have a waterfront lot and hope to live there again someday in hopes my kids and future grandchildren can enjoy it and make new memories.

Thanks for reading!

Life’s an adventure!

  • Your life is what you make of it and I choose to make mine an adventure!

Traveling, discovering and seeing new places is one of my favorite things to do, I travel as much as my job allows, which means a lot of short trips close to home and an occasional longer journey to a new place I’ve yet to explore.

I love big cities, their museums, history and different cultures but I am mostly drawn to nature and the beauty of God’s handiwork.

I have purchased a National Park Passport and I am anxious to visit as many as I can along with some of the state parks in my area.

I find myself taking a lot of photos so I will never forget the places I’ve been and seen. Recently I’ve been thinking that a travel blog would be a great way to document my adventures although I’ve never blogged before, this will just be one more adventure I will try my hand at and embark on.
