Wednesday – Day 6

January 20, 2011

Well, we drove for 3 hours or so and saw lots of wide open country. We are now having a great visit with friends in Fort Worth, Texas.

Here are a few of the pictures taken while driving…

Wide open spaces

Their houses here sure blend in to the scenery…


Can you see them?


I was quite surprised to see a french name down here!

Windmill blades

A bunch of these trucks passed us carrying those huge blades for windmills. Monsters!

After we arrived in Fort Worth, our friend took us to the old stockyard area where they have a mini- Texas Longhorn drive down the main street twice a day for the tourists. The spread on those horns was fantastic. These guys actually have to turn their head sideways to get through narrow spaces! The spread can be up to 7-8′

Longhorn drive

Check out the twisted  horns on this one!!

Look at these poor guys. They either look really tired of carrying that massive weight around – or – they are really tired of doing this drive twice a day!

Get a load of this sign! Only in Texas…

The walkways and streets through this whole area are all patterned bricks.

We saw this wonderful couch at a country/rustic furniture place. Great stuff!

This one is for my son, Luke…

We had a great day, a good visit, and we leave again in the morning.

    Those houses on the hillside almost look like scrub brush or tumbleweeds all laid out neatly…. the brick street reminded me of the stone one in Gastown, Vancouver. those long horns were sure impressive, eh? ~ and that couch was marvelous! Had to grin at “Quebec St.” and the “Cross-eyed Moose” signs. Transplanted Canadians leaving their mark, perhaps… Glad you are having a chance to see some sights and visit friends. Safe journeys… God Bless.
