Touring Smithville TX

ah. . .exercise. . .it’s so very, very difficult to force ourselves out the door for a walk. . .walking around the RV park is soooo boring (whiney voice). . .but we know we gotta get out and do something, especially since we’re not willing to give up eating the good stuff. . .

so. . .what to do, what to do?  In Colorado, we did a lot of hiking, but hey, hiking’s not near as exciting in the flat lands of Texas. . .however. . .walking tours around little country towns are always very interesting. . .

Historic Down Town Smithville TX
with a pretty little historic down town. . .

Historic Down Town Smithville TX
fabulous architecture on many of the buildings. . .
don’tcha think last year’s Christmas lights still strung on everything add a great decorative touch?

Hope Floats

but you may remember Smithville best as the setting for the movie Hope Floats. . .
along with other various movie titles. . .
