Waxahachie, TX ~ The historic MKT Depot is located at 501 S. Rogers St. Waxahachie, TX 75165. Restoration was completed in 2010. Prior to that the depot was a stop on the Missouri-Kansas-Texas (MKT) rail line until 1964, primarily hauling cotton to local markets. Boyce Feed Store is located across the street from the depot. The feed store sells what you would expect (animal feed), but also has very cute shabby chic home decor and country ready clothing. Advertisements
Onekama, MI ~ I regret that I only took two pictures on our quick detour in Onekama, MI. These shots were taken outside of the Onekama Library. This was before we owned smart phones, so we needed to ask a live human for directions while on a road trip. This seemed like a peaceful place to read a book.
Post, TX ~ Post is a small town about 45 minutes away from Lubbock, TX. This was often a stopping point on our way out of town. There is a really good (in a bad way) burger stand on the north side of town. They served all of the goodies I remember buying at the snack bar in high school – burritos, cheese fries, ice cream, and, of course, a texas size greasy cheeseburger. These pictures were taken on a […]
Lubbock, TX ~ The center covers a lot of ground; over twenty acres. You can take a mini journey thorough the ranching history of the area by touring restored structures (homes, barns, schoolhouses, etc.). The tour begins with a dirt floor structure, and ends with a modern day structure. It is a walk through time. Some structures are even open for exploration.
Lubbock, TX ~ The National Ranching Heritage Center showcases Lubbock’s rich ranching history and pioneer days. There are numerous exhibits that highlight the tools of the day. This set of photos showcases the interior designs of different eras.

Fluvanna, TX ~ We like to take detours on road trips, just to explore. However, this detour was short lived. We felt uneasy immediately upon entering the town. I’m sure this is due to watching too many “The Hills Have Eyes” flicks. Fluvanna is about an hour and a half away from Lubbock, TX. It seems this area was deserted around the 1940’s after railways were taken over by highways. As far as I can tell, it is still a ghost town.

Boerne, TX ~ Boerne is an amazing town located about thirty minutes north of San Antonio, TX. The town has grown a lot since I was last there, but it still feels cozy and welcoming. I can’t wait to go back. The Bear Moon Bakery is worth the drive!
