After spending more than an hour exploring the history of Farmers Branch, Texas. The GPS coordinates led me to the first town jail in Grapevine, Texas built in 1909.
That cell in the summer? Over 100 degrees every day? Would not be my happy place (or anyone’s!).
The next stop was only a few blocks away. Of course, it took longer to figure that out than it was to walk it.
We passed this gorgeous building and I fell in love with it. LOVE!
There is something about round windows and round rooms. I will fall for them every time. I am sure there is some deep meaning involved somewhere – like my number threes.
Another interesting storefront on the walk to destination number two.
The next stop turns out to be a Railroad Crossing or Grapevine’s Vintage Railroad.
I have not been on this train. It runs from Grapevine to the Fort Worth Stockyards. I heard there are hold-ups, and robbers on horseback….fun!
The train is not in service this month as they are working on the track. Which? Is just dandy for me…since I can take photos without being smooshed.
There is a glass blowing shop/school next to the train depot. I think the art from the glass is incredible (and a lot of it is ROUND). I adore the detail and design. They had student projects hanging in the window and two large spheres outside.
There is one more set of coordinates to go, and it lead me to one of my favorite places to go to and from. It has to do with my career field. I wonder if those (not on Facebook) know what it is. You only have to look to the sky….
I will publish my LAST place of the hunt tomorrow.
