A Day in the Life

We did a little exploring today. We drove into Tahlequah. We checked out the Cherokee Courthouse. We took pictures at a city park. We had lunch at a Tex-Mex restaurant. We also visited the Verizon store to get some things taken care of with our phones.

The weather is HOT. They are experiencing record breaking temps here. It has been over 101⁰ everyday expect 2 since we arrived. Seems like the central US is dealing with a heat wave and draught conditions.

When we got back to the state park we had new neighbors. Matter a fact; we have about five new trailers that came in while we were out exploring. We have gotten a little spoiled by having the park to ourselves.
On the weekend we always have a few people stopping in for a few days. We are in our third site since we arrived here. The first site (35) is the best. It has lots of shade. We had to move after a week because it was reserved. We moved to site 19. It is located next to the playground, dumpster and restroom. That site had NO shade. After 3 days, we moved to site 36. It is across the street from our first site and only gets evening shade. It is a nice wide site and backs up to the inner circle where the deer graze.

We do enjoy the peacefulness of this park. We have to drive 20 miles to Muskogee or 17 miles to Tahlequah for groceries or gas. There is a grocery store in Gore which is 9 miles away but they are expensive.

We are taking our time to explore the areas of each place we stay. We are not in any hurry! We want to fully explore each area before we move on to the next stop.

Travel Safe Dawn and Denise


  1. Glad you girls seem to be enjoyin' your new life. Travel safe.

  2. You are definitely doing it the right way. Stay until you've explored all nooks and crannies of the area! Nice to have deer in your sights!

  3. It sounds like you're enjoying yourselves despite the heat. I'm confused...what state are you in now?

  4. I'm wondering like Karen, what state are you in? I like the idea of going slow and getting to know a state.

  5. Isn't it great to not have a schedule and stay as long as you want? It's wonderful to be able to smell the roses.

    The midwest is definitely experiencing a heat wave! We came north to find cooler weather. It didn't happen :)

  6. Ahhhh . . . Tex-Mex! No such thing here in Jersey or really anywhere outside Texas IMHO, so I make our own. Glad to hear you ladies are enjoying yourselves. You have earned it!

  7. I'm with you ....take the time to smell the roses everywhere you go!!!
