Buckhorn Campground~Sulphur, Oklahoma

We RV'd up to beautiful Buckhorn Campground in Sulphur, Oklahoma for several days the beginning of November.  It's in the Chickasaw National Recreation Area which is not owned by the Chickasaw nation but named after them. 

Autumn is my favorite season and 
Buckhorn's colors were delightful.

All lined up--six couples, 
four on this side shown here, and two across from us.

Or is it propane?  I'm not sure.

site which was next to our site.

See that picnic table?
It's where we were gathered in the above pic.

He's my Facebook friend and 
this was the first time I met him!
He works with George.

I'm in love with this place!
It's only a couple hours from home too.
See ya later Buckhorn.
We will be back!

Have a Smiling Autumn and
a Happy Thanksgiving,

New Braunfels, San Antonio & Gruene RV Trip

At the end of my last post, I mentioned that I'd post a video which would be Part 5 of our Florida trip.   I have had lots of issues with creating the video but, hopefully, I will be posting that soon.  For now, I'm moving on to another RV trip.

In October, we had a trip scheduled to Buckhorn Campground in Sulphur, Oklahoma.  Due to the government shutdown, it was closed so we decided to go to Rio Raft Resort (now called Rio Guadalupe Resort) in New Braunfels.  My sister Linda went with us and we met up with our good friends Joe and Linda.  

We visited this RV park, the San Antonio River Walk, and Gruene around this time last year.  I posted quite a few pictures then so I'm not posting too many this time.  

The first night we went to San Antonio.
We ate some delicious Mexican food but I can't 
for the life of me remember the name of the place!

The second and third day, we roamed around Gruene.
Below is the oldest Dance Hall in Texas.
A wine and music festival was taking place but we opted not to attend because there was enough activity on the streets, in the dance hall, and in the stores.

 Gruene shopping.
I love these headbands and 
the Cotton Eyed Joe Flags!

I find a lot of art and humor in 
mannequins as many of you know.
The ones below are artfully delightful.
And finally, that's one mighty cute 
Longhorn motor scooter.

As far as the Florida Trip video is concerned, I have created a 13-minute video, and encountered many issues in the process.  For one, iMovie closed on me six times or more.  When I reopened it, sometimes the movie was there and sometimes it was not.  If it wasn't there, I was usually able to recover it in Time Machine.  One time, however, I couldn't get it back so I spent 1-1/2 hours on the phone with Apple, and ended up with a copy that didn't have any of the music I'd added.  I had to redo some odds and ends and all the music.  Finally, after over 40 hours of work, I attempted to finalize the project and I'm now getting an error message.  I don't know what to do next but I'm certainly going to try and figure it out!

This past weekend, we finally took our Buckhorn Campground trip to Sulphur, Oklahoma so that will be up next unless I figure out the iMovie issue first of course.

In the meantime,
