Where I stayed
The first item on the agenda is the Cowgirl Museum... are they kidding? Maybe they are... This place sure looks like it is intended for little girls. Kim is too OLD for this!!! We are out of there after a quick walk around. Not much to see... might as well go and watch those longhorns chewing the grasses... Like Lady Bird Wild Flowers Center, we want our refund!!!
We started to doubt if there is any culture venue to see here. Our next culture experience is KimBell Museum... we are not sure this place is any good, but the admission is free and not to forget the audio tour is also free of charge. What more can we ask for. This place is a gem. Like going to someone house and see their little private art collection. Not too big not too small. Enough of everything for everyone to enjoy. We do not have to rush around to see each piece of art. Thumbs up from us! The museum cafe is not to miss. They have the unusual concept -- pick your plate (small - $8, medium - $9, large - $10) - and choose you choices of any or all: quiche, sandwich, salad, Texas slaw, etc... if we can put all those on our plate, then they are ours to take... and all come with soup and drinks... Wow! This is a welcome break for us. There is a pettie lady, named Judy, coming around to check and to see how all the patrons doing... sweet woman! She sure make us feel special.
We are heading for the Stockyards Historic District to view the last cattle drive for the day. Sounds touristy? Of course it is!!! These guys put on the show twice a day, @11:30AM and 4:00PM, as long weather permitted. This place is surrounding with steakhouses, saloons, rodeo venues...
Billy Bob's - its claim to fame as the 'World Largest Honky Tonk'
Steakhouses here can turn any one to a beef eater. After Keith fills his stomach with beef, we are ready for the rodeo show. We cannot be in Texas without seeing a rodeo show... The fresh smell of cows is invigorating... one night long of rodeo show makes enough memories for us to last a life time...
Another loooong day in Texas. Hee Haw!!!
