Forth Worth and Dallas

Monday came and it was off to the Dallas-Fort Worth Area to visit Tom's cousin and her husband. They are staying at a campground just South of Denton Texas. When we arrived, all Tom had to do was pay for the site as his cousin, Connie, had everything setup for us.

On Tuesday morning Tom set out to have some keys made. While in Austin, I lost my motorhome door and compartment door keys. After getting the keys, We struck out to see some of the sites of Dallas-Fort Worth Area.

The first place we visited was the Mustangs of Las Colinas Statue. What a site! You can just let yourself imagine a small herd of Mustangs running across a small stream and the pounding of hoofs. What talent to be able to bring this much emotion to a statue.

Off we went to the Fort Worth Stock Yards where many, many years ago cattle were shipped from this location. This area has under went a rehab and has been turned into a tourist area with shops and several places to eat. A cattle drive is held twice a day and we arrived just in time for the afternoon cattle drive.

Next door to the Stock Yards is Billy Bob's, the largest honky Tonk in the country.
It has a large show area, several bars, a gift shop and a bull riding ring (the real ones not the mechanical ones).

Our final stop ot the day was the Fort Worth Water Gardens. This is another area that is very relaxing in the heart of a city.

This was our last stop of the day. Tomorrow, Dallas...
