The Next Two Stops of the Meetup GPS Photo Safari

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.

1909 Town Jail of Grapevine, Texas
Not much window light

View from the back of the cell. This gives me new appreciation for my house.

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!

Building with my favorite windows.

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.

Love this embrace in front of the rail depot.

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.

Interlochen Christmas Lights Photo Walk

Jason, and I live right by a very popular place to go and look at Christmas lights. It’s called Interlochen. I really feel blessed that there are back ways to our house during this time of year, because otherwise, it would take forever to get home.

They are BEAUTIFUL lights, and a MUST see if you can endure the long wait in a long line of cars. Luckily, Jason dropped me off to do the photo walk before the line was too long.

There was plenty of time to walk around and get some captures (and I didn’t even get to all the streets).

*I could not narrow down my favorites. So, I had Jason pick from those, and he got a say in which ones made the final cut. These are it and win a special place on The Blog. Hope you love them as much as I do.

Wishing you the merriest of Christmases and many blessings throughout the year. I hope your cup runneth over and you find joy as your constant companion.
