~we had to get away: wrap up~

It was rather warm as we traveled around on Saturday, but as we were enjoying a comfortable nights sleep a cold front filtered down to Texas! On Sunday, the temps stayed near the high 40s and low 50s. No matter what time of year, a Texan appreciates a cold front!

After enjoying silly time and a filling breakfast at Ihop, we decided to visit Scottsville, Texas. Virgil had read about an old cemetary there with lots of statues. Though the weather was crisp, it was still lovely to be outdoors and the cemetary was beautiful!
After the cemetary, we made a quick stop at Caddo Lake State Park. Most of the trees were verdently spring green. However, the cypress had yet to bud and the gray spanish moss against the gray bark of the trees and the gray tint of the overcast day lent an eerily surreal atmosphere to parts of the park.

We wrapped up our trip perusing a few antique shops and having lunch {complete with sugar free coconut cream pie} at Kitt's Kornbread Sandwich and Pie Bar .

Now...where we goin' next?
