Fort Worth outshining Dallas





Debbie does Dallas

While visiting Texas, we took in the iconic Dallas skyline from atop the Reunion Tower.

Inside the 6th floor museum you will find this photo of John and Jacqueline Kennedy. Each portrait is made up of 50,000 tiny pictures of each of them.  Amazing to see.

Looks can be deceiving

 While visiting Fort Worth, we heard about a hidden gem - Joe T. Garcia's Restaurant.  When we first arrived, we were not impressed; the outside was nothing special.  We were unable to get in because the waiting list was so long.  We couldn't understand why.  Later that week, we tried again and we couldn't believe what we found after entering! It is a beautiful oasis full of fountains, gardens and lovely walk-ways. The food, service and atmosphere were great!  A must see if you are in the area!!

Red Sox Nation in Texas

While in Texas, we were able to see Big Papi play at Texas Rangers Stadium in their final series of the 2016 season.  Lots of Boston fans were there. It was a great game.  Boston came back in the final innings to win! Big Papi is a world class player on and off the playing field. Officially the Red Sox organization will retire his number this season.
