There is something about the audiences we get in Texas. Without fail, they are always so lively and loud! This weekend was no exception.
Fort Worth was a great few days. The weather was lovely so we were able to walk around and take in the city and it is a really cool city. The downtown area is has so much character. They resisted pulling down all the old buildings and removing the classic architecture and have repurposed and maintained the original structures. It means that you can have a sense of history as you walk the streets.
We made it up to the stockyards a few times to hit up the world’s largest honky tonk and do some two-stepping and I was able to go and see my very first rodeo. It was so exciting. My favourite part was the barrel racing. Those guys go so fast!
They still drive cattle through the streets up by the stockyards every day. Nowadays it doesn’t really serve any real purpose other and to please the tourists but I was happy to be one of those and all the cowboys ride by with the long horn cattle.
