Chip and I celebrated our anniversary with a trip to Wyndham Resort on Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees. We left on Thursday, July 13th, and took our time driving the scenic roads to the northeastern corner of Oklahoma. We stopped by Clayton Lake State Park and Robbers Cave State Park on the way. We stayed at the resort until Sunday, where we enjoyed swimming and relaxing. We did some sightseeing in the area and enjoyed a delicious dinner at Twin Bridges restaurant on Friday evening. On Saturday, we visited Har-ber Village, an Oklahoma pioneer museum, with over 100 exhibits. We enjoyed lunch at the museum cafe, and then strolled through the Lendonwood Gardens nearby. Later that afternoon, we went on a very informative tour of the Pensacola Dam, which is a multi-arch dam on the Grand River. We went to Natural Falls State Park on Sunday, before returning home that evening.
