We were in the area to do a volksmarching event. The walk started at the Cypress Creek Community Center and was on country roads.
After doing the walk we headed over to the Comfort historic district to look around.
I posted a couple of these birdhouses earlier when I first painted them. Now that most of them are refurbished and back outdoors I thought I post all of them.
When I ran out of ceramic birdhouses, I moved on to the wood ones. Most of these my husband had to put back together. They were literally falling apart. Once he got them back together I started painting them.
Now all these birdhouses are located in my side yard where I can see them from my kitchen window. Only one of them has had birds build a nest in it. Can you guess which one the birds choose? It was the ceramic red cardinal!
Dinosaur Valley State Park, located just northwest of Glen Rose in Somervell County, is a nice park set astride the Paluxy River. Long ago, dinosaurs left footprints in the mud at the edge of an ancient ocean. Today, you can walk in their tracks in the bed of the Paluxy River (unless its rained recently).
This attraction is down the road a ways from the State Park. It offers 20 acres of walkways that feature life-size dinosaurs and an impressive fossil dig where children can search for authentic fossils. Entrance fee is $12.00. We didn’t go in.
Bored with reading I decided to collect my yard art and paint it up. I am not finished with all of it, but these are the pieces I’ve done so far.
I first did the metal cat. Poor thing was so rusty. He needed a new artificial flower too.
My next attempt was the frogs. There was no way I could reach all the places that needed paint, but it looks pretty good from a distance.
A rusty birdhouse next caught my attention. Painting the vines was quite a chore.
The next birdhouse was ceramic, but the paint had faded to white.
The ceramic goldfish near the pond had also faded to white. So they got a new coat of paint.
I am currently painting a metal whirligig.
After walking at Hardberger Park today we drove on into San Antonio to see the Grotto on the Riverwalk.
There has been a lot of activity in Hamilton, the adding of new waymarks, so we headed over to take come pictures and “collect” the them. On the way we passed this interesting historical marker.
We took a different route home so we could pass St. Olaf’s Kirke better known as “The Old Rock Church”.
