National Forest all around
Great sites to park
We were able to score a site at a local State Park in Waco near Waco Lake. We had a reservation at the Midway Campground which made it easy to get to the downtown Waco area. Thought I had a photo of the campsite but photos of Magnolia Market and The Silos are better.
Iconic building in Waco
If you've watched the show you know why Glenda is holding up this shirt.
Enlarge the photos for best viewing and reading.
Outside they have food trucks in the back lot as a service to visitors and helping the local vendors.
We enjoyed our visit and made sure to stop at the bakery for some delicious cupcakes and I got a fantastic cinnamon roll for breakfast the next day.
Chip and Joanna have done a wonderful job of putting together an attraction for the Waco community. They even made a play area with artificial turf to play on and big bean bag chairs to sit on as children and adults played. Unfortunately not too many folks were playing due to the heat and humidity.
Got my hat at Chips Corner

I highly recommend a visit to the Silos and Magnolia Market for those who follow the show. We're glad we made the effort to travel that way.
We finished off our visit with a lunch at a local Mexican Restaurant called Rufi's Cocina. A little hole in the wall place near downtown...got very good reviews and we certainly enjoyed our meal. In fact it was very authentic and bland. The waiter told us that real Mexican food is not typically spicy. That's what Americans have done to the traditional food. Some like it hot and some not. Haha
Busy place off the beaten path
Don't tell Glenda I put this on the blog. She really doesn't like me putting photos of her on my blog however....
I think she looks beautiful.
Well that's our visit to Waco. Wonderful time. Worth our effort but time to move on.
Not much to blog about as we moved through TX and NM over the next few days. A few overnighters. Our next mission was to meet our friends Steve and Debbie in Durango, CO.
We stayed in Sweetwater, TX, Roswell, NM and Bernalillo, NM as we continued to Durango. I'll post a little on our Roswell stop next time prior to our visit in Durango. Thanks for following along.
