Where I stayed
Holiday Park at Benbrook Lake
Following our livestock adventures, we spent a little time wandering from shop to shop, admiring belt buckles that would weigh down any small man who tried to wear them and boots in every color and style. I picked up a black cowboy hat for our concert the next day and Della found herself the perfect pair of boots (she looks good as a cowgirl!) For all of you Chuck Norris fans out there, we even got to step into CJ's Saloon from Walker, Texas Ranger. In real life it is the White Elephant Saloon and is located right across from the coliseum where weekly rodeos are held.
Our afternoon wrapped up with a cattle drive down the main street, complete with cowboys on horseback and longhorns that would even stop and pose for pictures (as I found myself face to face with one only 5 feet away) If they look big behind a fence, they look even bigger when there is nothing but a few feet of air between you!
After a trip back to the campsite for dinner we returned to the Stockyards for a much anticipated western adventure to Billy Bob's Texas, the world's largest honky tonk.
The next day, before we went to the concert we headed back into Fort Worth for the annual Main Street Arts Festival.
And now, on to Kenny Chesney!
