ROUTE 66- OKLAHOMA, HERE WE COME

 

Here we come Oklahoma, 376 miles of Route 66. Day eleven starts our first stop in the town of Miami, but pronounced ” my-am-uh” , so were told. We saw
Coleman Theater, dating back to 1929 and still in use.DSCN5205

Waylan’s Ku Ku Burger, 1960, for lunch (nothing special)DSCN5207

After lunch we headed out of Miami to Alton to drive the Ribbon Road or Sidewalk Highway. There are 2 rare sections of 9ft wide curbed highway. These are the last sections of the original Ribbon Road. It was a fun bumpy ride.DSCN5212

We had to end the night at Waffle House, Bob had to go at least once.

We spent the next three nights at Hawthorn Bluff campground on Oologah Lake.
Nice deal for $20.00 a night, electric and water.

I was lucky to meet up with my cousin Holly for lunch at the Hammett House, and they have yummy pies (blueberry)-ClaremoreIMG_4865DSCN5233

Will Rogers Memorial-Claremore

Ed Galloway Totem Pole Park( largest totem pole) – Foyil

Day Thirteen finally took a day off of sightseeing and hung out at Oologah Lake, where Bob fished and caught some crappie and catfish. Then swam in the lake.

Next day included the following:
Blue Whale – (anniversary present to his wife)-Catoosa

Route 66 Harley Davidson store – TulsaDSCN5263
Bob needed another Harley shirt, as he doesn’t have enough.

In Tulsa we also visited “The Golden Driller” statue, the Meadow Gold sign from 1930, and the Cyrus Avery Centennial Plaza, with flags for all Route 66 states.

Today we drove a whole 1 1/2 hours to Bell Cow Lake campground in Chandler.
Nice for $15.00 a night with electric and water, and our neighbor is a horse, as this is also an equestrian campground.

Rock Cafe on Route 66- Stroud
Jaxson would have loved this place as it was CARS themed. The owner Dawn was the inspiration for Sally in the movie CARS. This is a Route 66 landmark, and the lunch we had of Jagerschnitzel $9.99 ➥As seen on Diners with Guy , it was absolutely delicious.

Pops on 66-(soda pops from around the world)- Arcadia

Arcadia Round Barn, since 1898, this is a Route 66 icon-ArcadiaDSCN5307

John’s Oklahoma County 66-Arcadia
This wasn’t on our list, but Bob saw it from the road so we stopped. It was really cool. The owner just started building and collecting Route 66 things and built rooms full of cool stuff.
