Tag Archives: Eureka


January has almost passed us by and I still haven’t posted anything.  I do have some backlogged places to that I need to share, and I will in due time!

I feel a bit melancholy.  My adventuring buddy, Peter, has moved to the other side of the world with his lovely wife.  It was so cool how AK and I became fast friends with them in such a short time.  It is nice when friendship is just easy.  I know there will be future global adventures ahead that I anticipate with glee.  For now, I am dealing with a slight mourning period, if you will. 2014 came with some big changes as far as people and friendships go and it always takes me some time to adjust.

Peter took the photo of me below.  We’d just had drinks and some food at Eureka, which is new to West Village. It was windy and below freezing outside, but at least it had been a sunny day.  You must go to Eureka. It was a very cool place with good food and an ample supply of bourbon for a frigid day.

What does that have to do with this blog?  Well, honestly, having a photo buddy made it really easy to go explore places. Especially as a woman; think safety in numbers.  Also the fact that Peter could join me on a week day was excellent because places like museums are often not as crowded.  I still plan on visiting places around the Metroplex.  Some I will venture to alone, and some will be with AK.  (I will ask him for his patience now as we go out and about and I stop to photograph the 500000 different things I see!)    I hope to keep up my regular, twice-a-month posts.  I enjoy taking photos and sharing places in Dallas/Fort Worth.  I may inject more of me on here. I am a bit hesitant to do that because I wanted the blog to focus on the places rather than me.  I suppose reading things from a local’s point of view is always helpful and maybe a bit more interesting.  I’ll figure it out.
