Our Weekend....

We had a wonderful weekend! The weather was absolutely perfect, and it looks like it is going to stay that way for another whole week. Sunny, in the 70's and cool in the shade. I couldn't ask for anything more. We started our weekend with homemade Cappuccinos. One of Frank's coworkers generously gave us an espresso machine and I'm learning the ropes. They are delicious, I must say!
I have made it my mission to discover all the hidden natural spots in my area. There is a system of trails along the Trinity River here in Fort Worth. The area near our house is less populated than closer to downtown and the major parks. We took the dogs out on the trail weekend before last and discovered a new spot. The area where we enter the trail system is called Riverbend Nature Area. There is a trail that runs along a creek, connecting the river trail to a neighborhood trail. I cannot believe that I have lived down the road from this area for eight years and never new what was there. It is amazingly beautiful, looks like you are in the country, and definitely underused. I am so thankful to have discovered this little spot.

To get to the trail we drive down a road, appropriately named Hidden Road.

I love the way the dogs shadows look!

I love this place!

Here we are at the creek. I can't believe how clear and clean the water is.

On the way home. Lucy off the leash, for a minute.

Fall in Fort Worth. I love it!
*I have a lot more to report about our weekend. This was just our first outing. I have to get busy on jewelry though, so it might take me a few days to get it all on the blog. I wanted to tell you though to check out your local PBS channel for a show about the CCC. Ours is airing tonight. I'll tell you more later about why this is so important and interesting to me.

I'm so glad! If you go from Hidden Rd. Take the trail to the left and then there is a smaller trail off to the left away from the river. It is beautiful!
