A Little Cash and Some Gas: Spontaneous Day Trip

Last weekend, we decided to go on a spontaneous day trip. We needed out of the city. But when you live between two metroplexes that isn’t always easy to do, so we just ran away from home in search of an escape from all the stressors in our lives.

At first, we didn’t have a destination in mind. We just got in the car, decided how much we were willing to spend, and started driving. We wound up in Weatherford, Texas which is about 50 minutes from where we live. We didn’t really know what they had to offer, but we decided to make the most of whatever was available. Here’s our adventure in pictures.

I love the courthouse here
We ran into the President here
The coffee and hot chocolate was amazing. Local authors have their books here. But . . . hmmm . . . it’s not the cleanest place I’ve been in.
There are so many neat places to eat. Great patios too.
We heard the Peach Festival in the summer is amazing. I guess we will have to come back and find out.
A little taste of the country
Some really neat rides reside in here
I like statues and sculptures
I know he’s not supposed to look like the tinman from the Wizard of Oz, but he kind of does
Around and around and around, you’ll see him every time
So many Victorians
The oddest thing we saw

We will go back when the weather warms up and the gardens are in bloom. The lake is also near by and we will want to spend some time checking it out. There are some neat antique shops and a lot of the local artist have their work for sale in many of the little shops. It’s a neat place.
