Wister Lake, Oklahoma

Camping on Wister Lake

Camping on Wister Lake

We took the trailer out for one last adventure before preparing it for winter.

The second week in November was the perfect time of year for SE Oklahoma.  The leaves were turning beautiful colors and the crowds were mostly gone for the season.  The few campers that were out this time of year were doing the same thing we were… Touring the Talihina Drive in hopes of capturing colorful fall photos.

The nights were rather chilly, everything you’d expect for mid- November.  It was well worth the quick weekend getaway though, Brian smoked his cigar by the fireside while I walked around the campsite looking for a spectacular sunset to photograph.  It didn’t do much for me and I ended up with this shot of the trailer with the sunset on the lake behind it.

Sunrise the next morning was well worth rising early.  The fog moved in and the lake was a bit more calm. The colors were spectacular, shades of orange and pink, with blues and gray.

Disney World 2014

Bambi and Friends

Bambi and Friends

I can finally cross off Bucket List #13 – “Take my grandkids to Disney World”…  All SEVEN of them and their parents.

My husband and I enjoyed spending every moment with them…  It was the park that was a bit overwhelming for me… Too many people in my space really makes me cranky.

After the week was over and we went back to our old routine, it made me really miss my kids and the g-babies. I realized how blessed we are to take such a family vacation.

My favorite Disney park is Epcot, and the best part of our “Disney experience” was eating dinner at Oktoberfest in Germany – Epcot.  Fantastic food!

Pops – A Route 66 Landmark.

Pops - A Route 66 Landmark.


You can’t make a trip down Route 66 without a stop for gas, burgers, and pop at this famous landmark.
They claim to have the best burger and fries anywhere… I tend to agree.

POPS is northeast of Oklahoma City, just east of Edmond.

660 W. Highway 66, Arcadia, OK 73007

405-928-POPS (7677)

877-266-POPS (7677)

From I-35: Exit 2nd Street Edmond (Exit 141) and you’re on Route 66. Then go 5 miles east.

From Turner Turnpike: Take the Wellston Exit and head west on Route 66 about 15 miles, just after Luther.
