Fun with Friends in Grove, Oklahoma

Bernice, Oklahoma
Bernice State Park, Site 16
Weather Condition; High 85 Low 65, Sunny

The weather is starting to cool off and we love it. I think it helps that our site is on the lake and we get a nice breeze too.

We’ve been having a great time with our friends (Bud & Bette). Earlier in the week the four of us drove into Grove, Oklahoma (9 miles) and visited Har-Ber Village. It’s a neat place to visit. It’s located in Grove, Oklahoma along the shoreline of Grand Lake O'The Cherokees of Northeastern Oklahoma.  It’s an outdoor walk through village containing 1,000’s of artifacts from the earliest days of our nation's founding. It’s one of the largest antique museums in the United States, complete with 112 buildings housing countless collections of antiques and memorabilia.  It’s really a very interesting place and they have done a great job in replicating an 1800's era town.

 We practically had the place to ourselves and the weather was comfortable when we first go started. A couple of hours later we were a little more than half way through  the village when it started getting hot out and we decided we were hungry.

 We left Har-Ber Village and drove to McDonald’s for buy-one-Big-Mac- Get-one-FREE. Lunch was great. We always have a great tie with Bud & Bette.

We stopped by a local sidewalk farmers market and picked up some sweet corn, tomatoes and okra.

Last night Dawn fixed a big dinner of pork roast, oven chicken, sweet corn, black-eyed peas, new potatoes and Squash casserole. Bette made slaw and a wonderful chocolate cake with ice cream.

Needless to say, we ate like lil pigs!

Tonight we had left overs and it was just as good as it was last night.
