I'm back. Erik left this evening. It's been a whirlwind week. Lots of fun and games. The weather was iffy many days, really dense fog one day [and we walked...I should say I WALKED...Erik jogged]. We drove to a small historical town [to see part of the history of the Texas Revolution [battles, missions, etc.]. The three of us went out to a movie and dinner one night [Rogue One; which I enjoyed]. We actually went birding a few times. Oh, and eat? Boy did we eat!!
Anyway, one evening we drove to Candy Cane Lane. It's a 10 block area in town near one of the country clubs that have the entire neighborhood lighted for the holidays. It's been a decades-long tradition...and I'd estimate between the 2nd week of December thru the first week of the new year, there are probably 150,000 visitors either doing a drive-thru or a walk-about!! Walking is the logical option in my opinion. You can really look at the lighting displays without having to heed the slow-traffic and foot traffic!! Here are just some of what we saw:
