Last weekend was a BUSY weekend but it was all fun! We started it off on Saturday with The Annual Water 4 Life Ride. I am not going to share much about it here because Scott did a great job of covering it on Rumbling Rider. I will say it was chilly but worth enduring for the charity!
In contrast to the cold temperatures on Saturday, Sunday proved to be a perfect day to ride! There wasn’t any wind, the sun was shining and the temperature stayed in the mid 80’s. We started out around 10:30 or so and headed to Granbury. At a red light Scott gave me a few options for lunch to choose from. The last time we were in Granbury A Biker Bash was going on and at the end of it Scott and I grabbed some tea at the Fillin Station. The service was friendly and the food smelt great so we I knew I wanted to give it a try for lunch. Again, we got great service, the food was yummy and the sweet tea is perfect! We took our time eating, talking and of course, watching other bikers roll by.
After lunch we decided to check out a few shops and the old jail. Neither of us had seen it despite many trips to the square. The entry fee is only $2.00 and well worth it. The small two story building is filled with historical treasures. There were two guides working that day to answer questions and give us some insight into the jails use and history. I also got to play with my camera settings because after seeing my flash go off I was informed flash photography wasn’t allowed.
We enjoyed the jail visit so much that we decided to head to Glen Rose to visit the historical square and check out the old jail. Unfortunately, the one located in Glen Rose isn’t open to view but it was still neat to walk around and read the plaques and visit some of the shops. The only disappointment is that most of the shops on the square are closed on Sunday. Despite that we had fun walking around, talking and taking pictures. It is nice to slow down and just take it easy after a fast paced work week. You can view more of the pictures I took in the slideshow below.

I’ve never been to that area of Texas, but I’d love to go. The streets look so quaint and cute! And I’ve always heard that I need to visit Glen Rose.
