Old Salado

Just got back from a wonderful weekend with my favorite guy of 50 years.
We walked up and down Main street in Salado checking out all the antique stores,
art gallery, and even the herb shop. I am so blessed to have a patient mate who
just lets me roam in and out while he visits with the locals, or just enjoys people watching..
There was a Wine Fest and an Art Festival going on. It was a bit too early for all the wine tasting,
but we enjoyed looking at the"copper bull" who will be used as a grill; smoke will come out of the horns. It was for sale, however the price was not posted! 
We stayed in the Historic Stagecoach Inn. The original inn, built in1860 stands as a reminder of days when the Overland Stage and the Pony Express  ran along the Chisholm Trail. The Inn was also frequented by General Robert E Lee, General Custer, and Stephen F. Austin. This Historical Inn has a lot to do with keeping Salado a town of importance today. Beautiful Salado Creek runs right through town, and we enjoyed sitting out on the rocks. Now, we will put our feet up and rest awhile!
