Where are we today ?

     What a wonderful sleep we had at this Walmart last night so quiet and perfect temperatures with a couple of windows open. Up early as usual got the coffee and computing taken care of waiting for the sunrise. Then a walkabout the parking lot and of course the store just because they are open 24 hours and we are in no big hurry today.
Walmart Sunrise
      Only 112 miles to go into our campground. So we pulled out just before 9 am and headed north, to Grove Oklahoma, Eagles Landing is a membership park of ours and we can stay here for 2 weeks free twice a year with full hookups, plus they have very good free wifi included . Yup we do make use of our memberships. And we do love this area. This is an (ROD) Resorts of Distinction Member ship park you can click the link HERE   we love the system and has saved us many thousands of dollars over the years making use of these parks that we visit.
mostly very nice roads to travel and very little traffic
stopped at a store along the way .
loved the jeep, a real off road machine
nice rig
     Not much further to go just enjoying the nice quiet back roads in the area.
a Bridge across the Channel for Grand Lake
passed by Darryl Starbirds Museum
have been there many times
if you like custom cars it is amazing
I will tell you more in another posting
      Here we are about 11 am checking in to Eagles Landing .Another place that we enjoy and feels like home, have been here many times over the last 12 years. Especially when we have friends here from our home park in Ontario Rock Glen Resort. Wow what a small world come all the way to Oklahoma to meet our neighbours !
a very nice park right on Gand Lake
      As we were pulling in Bill and Patsy (fellow Bloggers) were chatting with the people pulling out of the site were were assigned, another couple from Ontario. Then our friends Ron and Loree came over to say high with Freddy. Freddy always goes nuts when he sees Suzie and me. Camped with them many times over the years as well, plus we see them frequently at Rock Glen Resort.
Ron and Freddy saying hi to Suzie.
Loree came over with Freddy as well
     Now I got a couple of short walkabouts the park chatted with Ron and bit, will do more walkabouts tomorrow and while we are here.
the pool here is wonderful but not open yet
      A few more improvements here some nice waterfalls and ponds near the pool and of course fish in the ponds.
the fish in the pond. no fishing here!
           Here we are all set up we can enjoy a nice sunny afternoon reading outside in the sun. A warm 76f but a cool breeze, I am in shorts and a t-shirt but not Suzie gotta be over 80F for her to wear shorts, maybe tomorrow?
nice large sites here and cement patios to boot
Ron and Loree 2 sites over
Bill and Patsy behind us 
      Then at 3 pm we got together at Bill and Patsy's site for Happy hour so nice for the 6 of us to gather together and flap our gums . As usual the conversation flows and before we know its almost 5 pm time to head on home and whip up supper.
we all here except Me 
Ron took this with me but missed Patsy? far right.
          Back home I put together a salad and a couple of Salmon fillets on our Weber Q and enjoyed a very tasty supper.
salmon fillets
yup sure did hit the spot
       Now here we are sitting outside reading and posting this blog, the breeze has died down watching the sunset at 7:30pm and still 67 f (19C). I have my sweater on and still in shorts. Really what is not to love about this? And the sunset pretty amazing as well right from our patio,.
a perfect way to end a perfect day
      That was our fun day meeting up with friends again and settled in here for a week or maybe more just because we can. Why not ? Great weather, full hookups a nice area we enjoy, free very good wifi and even a nice tornado shelter if we happen to need it. And we have in the past.
      Thank y'all for stopping by and checking us out.
only 112 miles today a nice easy drive

  4. Looks like a fun place for you with all your friends around. Love salmon on the grill, but I do it on a plank instead when I have one.

  5. Hmm, I don't see any shade for the fish. The water must be getting pretty hot in the summer in that pond. I read that your pantry is being considered like a grocery store ;-) quite the compliment, I think. Have fun and enjoy each other's company while staying together in that nice park.

    1. We stay mostly at our membership parks we have almost 700 to choose from either free, $9.00 or $10.00 a night to half price, Why pay full price when we can take advantage of these places that we enjoy.
