After a good drive around Beavers Bend State Park on US Hwy 259, we spotted this newly paved road from further way. We thought the access to that area was closed, so we did not pay attention to it. But when we saw the dirt road entrance, I quickly turned and got on it to check the area out. It was a newly paved road to a new development. Looked new houses or cabins will be built on there.
The road was sloped. The photo didn’t do justice to how steep it looked from the top of the hill. I asked my husband if it’s okay for us to try to drive down. He was hesitant at first but when we were about to leave the area, he was like, “okay, let’s try it”. So we drove down and up. Darling daughter cried because of fright. She was like, “let’s not do that anymore”. It was cool! It was easy-peasy with the Subaru Outback. What an adventure.
It’s Spring Break, that means it’s frolicking time again. We had a great time exploring Downtown Dallas today. We didn’t take the DART because we thought the travel time was quite long. So we convoyed. We felt more comfortable with that.
Exploring city downtown means a lot of walking. But we were prepared for that. We had our most comfortable tennis shoes on. Ha! You have to pay a one-day parking in downtown, too. It was $10 per car.
I always admire beautiful building structures and Downtown Dallas did not disappoint. You may look at the photos above. We visited one museum called Museum of Illusions. Below is me and the girls in one of the areas where your eyes are tricked (optical illusion).
After so much walking, we were starving, so we had an early dinner at the Family Thais Asian Bistro and headed home after.
Family beach vacation was granted. It was an awesome beach holiday. Darling daughter was very happy that we were able to go to the beach this summer and had a great trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. We left Texas Saturday morning, stopped in Slidell, Louisiana to spend the night, then headed to Gulf Shores the next day. It was a very long drive but it was worth it. We enjoyed our beach time and exploring during the five days stay.
