Destination: Unknown

Bob and I woke up this morning and decided to take a drive in the country since it was such a beautiful day. We headed southwest with no particular destination in mind. We ended up in Granbury in time for lunch. Granbury was settled in 1854 and it has a model town square that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The square is built around the court house in the middle. We took a walk around the square to see what was there, then decided to have lunch on the patio at Stringfellow's. When I was finished with my lunch, a butterfly landed on my plate and enjoyed sucking up the sweetness from the bread from my sandwich. Bob and I walked around the square again and into several of the shops. We saw lots of beautiful hand-made jewelry and crafts. Then, we decided to drive on to Glen Rose, since it was only 17 miles away. This quaint, little town also has a town square built around the court house in the middle. It wasn't as busy as Granbury, but again we walked around and into the shops on the square. It was a wonderful day for discovery of some new places and a beautiful day for a drive in the country.
