Waco, Texas

We spent a few days in Waco, Texas.  Why Waco, you ask, well Cathy and I like a TV show called Fixer Upper on HGTV and it is based out of Waco.  The folks on the show have opened a market, bakery and such on an old Silo property and Cathy wanted to check it out.  So since Waco is on our way south, what the heck, we can spend a few days and check out things.  So here are some of the photo’s of Magnolia Market.

We also walked around the river park with an 1800’s era toll bridge and another neat cattle drive statue.

We also stopped by another National Monument, this one was the “Waco Mammoth National Monument” which shows a find of several “Columbian” mammoths, which are larger than the typical Woolly mammoths we learned about in school.

Another stop was the Texas Ranger Museum which covered the history and had many of the weapons and tools used by the Rangers.

Waco was a pretty neat town to visit, we just had a few days and we were on the go most of the time.  We did have a excellent lunch at the locals favorite spot called George’s based on recommendation from a friend.  Some of the best Onion Rings and Cathy and I split one of their huge baked stuffed potatoes.  We also got time to watch the latest Star Wars movie, which we thought was very good and got a quick bite at In N Out Burger, a west coast favorite.

We headed south toward San Antonio, we have an appointment at a campground to get solar installed which I’ll cover in the next blog post.

  1. And no mention of Torchys… I must assume you have developed a burger bias based on your blathering. Me and my taco loving friends are upset by your evident disdain for the delicious delights dispensed daily by the denizens of delectableness during your stay. Deliver the desired diatribe due, or the dogs go by the way of Korean BBQ… woof woof…
