Went out last night to watch a preseason friendly at the Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas between Barcelona & Juventus. It’s the second time i’ve managed to catch a live game of Barca, the first being in April 2018 watching them take on Leganes in La Liga at the Nou Camp. That was one ofContinue reading “Barcelona V Juventus, Cotton Bowl Stadium Dallas”
Took a trip earlier this summer to Virginia on the east coast of the USA. Thought it’d be fun to share a few photos from a day we spent in Washington DC. Washington is the Capital city of the USA, named for the first president George Washington.
Thought i’d share a few photos from our trip to Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge in December. Going in the winter is one of my favourite times of year, each season has it’s own distinct wildlife at the refuge but during December/January there are usually thousands of Snow Geese which makes an amazing natural spectacle.
Enjoyed a great week in Nevada last month for Thanksgiving. One of the days we took a trip to Ruby Valley, this is a glacier made Valley around 50 miles from Elko in Northern Nevada. The Valley is around 60 Miles in length and offers some amazing views of the local scenery and wildlife. TheContinue reading “Ruby Valley, Nevada”
A few more images from visiting San Antonio in May. On reflection i would definitely rank it amongst my favourite cities I’ve visited in America. Aside from the Spanish Missions (here’s my post about those for anyone who’s interested) https://lone-star-lore.com/2021/07/31/spanish-missions-san-antonio-texas/ there is a lot of other stuff to do and visit there. In this postContinue reading “San Antonio, Texas”
Enjoyed a visit to Lake Ray Roberts recently, it’s a massive reservoir around 30 miles North of Dallas. It has two Texas State Park locations attached to it, the one we visited was the Isle du Bois unit on the southern side of the lake. There’s a lot of activities to do there including boating,Continue reading “Lake Ray Roberts State Park, Texas”
I thought i’d share a few other photos from visiting Houston a few months back. As well as going to Anahuac we also visited the San Jacinto Battlefield, the most decisive battle of the Texas Revolutionary War. The battle was fought in April 1836 and resulted in total victory for the Texans who also tookContinue reading “San Jacinto Battlefield & USS Texas”
Recently went to the Texas gulf coast, around 70 miles South East of Houston to Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge. It’s 34,000 acres of natural habitat mainly for birds and in particular shore and wading birds. It’s also a great place in the spring to see migratory songbirds whom travel through after crossing the Gulf ofContinue reading “Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, Texas”
Last weekend we took a trip north from Dallas to the Texas – Oklahoma border to the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge. Situated close to Sherman, the refuge is over 11,000 acres squared and is famous as a haven for migratory birds. All year round you can visit here and see a whole plethora of differentContinue reading “Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge (pt 1), Texas”
Thought i’d share some photos from our recent Christmas trip to Nevada. We travelled to the city of Elko in the North East of the state. As you can see it’s a lot different to where we are in Dallas, it was great fun though and we thoroughly enjoyed visiting.
