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.
We surely enjoyed this year’s Spring Break. My darling daughter was satisfied with all our adventures we had this week. One of her favorites was our hotel room accommodation in Fort Worth. We did not go back to the hotel where we stayed last year because the room smelled like fried fish. She even called it “fried fish hotel”. Lol
Anyway, we stayed at Hyatt Place Cityview Fort Worth this time. The room rate was $3 higher than the “fried fish hotel”. I grabbed it anyway since we wanted to try to stay in a new hotel this year.
It was a good decision because the room was nice. The living area is big and they gave us two double beds and one sofa bed room. The downside was, the room has a small closet and small bathroom. The front office seems kinda ‘cold’ but we enjoyed staying at Hyatt Place. 🙂
DD even told me she wanted to buy one of the rooms so she can live there. I said hopefully when she finished college and get a high paying job or high earning business in the future. 🙂
Spring Break already? Wow! How fast this school year is passing by. We are so excited to go on a family mini-vacation again. This Spring Break we are not going very far. We are on a staycation. And our darling daughter already planned where she wants to go-to the zoo. Haha! But the trip to the zoo is tomorrow. We still had an hour spare after checking in at Extended Stay of America in Fort Worth so we agreed to go to the botanic gardens.
I missed this place. It’s been 10 years since I visited Fort Worth Botanic Garden for the very first time upon arrival in Texas from the Philippines. A few attractions looked old but the ambiance still feels the same. Serene. I can spend all day here. So lovely and peaceful. My darling daughter loved it here, too. She said the Japanese Garden is her most favorite. She fed the koi fish which she enjoyed the most. We saw a lot of blooms along the pathways but most of the flowering plants are not in full blooms yet. I am sure in April this place is full of colors. You should visit.
