We ate our lunch at a Diner on Route 66 and only paid $2.92 for gas, the cheapest we've paid in several years. We both decided on the burgers and fries and they were ok. After driving through Oklahoma City we finally saw the windmills the western states are known for. These are some beautiful looking machinery.
We stopped for gas towards the Oklahoma/Texas border and I told Tim I wanted to get a picture of "those cows with the long horns." Tim laughed and said ," those are called steer with those long horns and that's why they call them 'Long horned Steer". I still called them a cow...LOL. It was funny because when I went over to take a picture of them, they all started to run away from me. I did manage to get in a couple good shots of them but all the while thinking to myself,"geez these things are that huge and they are scared of me?"
For the night we stopped at a Motel on Route 66, called the Flamingo Inn. It was very retro that had a 50's/60's feel. It was pretty neat to know that we were staying in a hotel that many others before us also stayed at. It was in Elk City, Oklahoma. We decided that since Oklahoma doesn't really have a special dish like many of the other states that we would just do Chinese for the night. We ended up finding a Chinese Buffet that definitely hit the spot.
