Well we arrived in Texas on Wednesday evening, so Thursday morning we were up early to do some exploring in Fort Worth where we were based.
The hotel was situated right in the town centre and was the perfect base for going out, finding food in between the scheduled Festival meals and generally exploring and having fun, which Mum and I did!
Just look at this topiary cowboy and horse!
The morning was very bright and very warm!
I quite fancied running under these water fountains but Mum muttered something about 'hair falling' and so I thought I better not risk it.
Wheeee...I can fly!
We just couldn't quite get over how blue the sky was!
Around the town were lots of interesting plaques to read telling of the history of the town and its people.
The town court house - we did some exploring in here another day, but didn't get any photos unfortunately.
More interesting facts.
The buildings were magnificent
Hmmm...where does this interesting path take us I wonder?
Off we go exploring.
There were lots of bike trails and walking trails, and we set off on one of them...
....first stop a monument with a fine looking solider on it.
Major Ripley Allen Arnold.
All around the monument were interesting information telling us about the area, the people and the settlement of it.
We decided to take a walk along the river.
I found an unusual insect!
I wonder what it is?
Looking back up the river.
Along the side of the river were various plants and flowers.
After a couple of hours wandering we thought we would make our way back to the hotel and find out how we could get to the Botanic Gardens.
