Some of the rest areas have the most beautiful views.

Looking out on the 9 mile ridge above lies a valley where an Indian trail and later a pioneer road crossed. In 1846 this became known as McKee's Gap after Thomas McKee led a group of Presbyterians here from Tennessee. Around 1900 John Wesley Love developed a 600 acre Peach Orchard there and this point became known as Love's Lookout.

Thank you Cooley Bay Winery, a Harvest Host in Van Alstyne, TX, for letting us spend Sat. night with you. We won't have far to go tomorrow. We are heading to a state park about 40 miles west of here and north of Dallas/Fort Worth but they didn't have an opening Sat. night.

Another Charcuterie tray for dinner and Pat did a flight taste-testing. They even had live music. Enjoyed visiting with a nice couple from near Chicago, Shelly and Steve, who are also spending the night here with Harvest Hosts. Learned, or rather tried to learn, how to play Monopoly Deal.

Thank you Valle Della Pace Vineyards and Winery in Garden Valley, TX for participating in the Harvest Host program and letting us spend Friday night.

A nice charcuterie board and we came away with 2 bottles of wine and a port.

No, he's not real.

The largest quilt store in Texas. It was nice and had a lot of premade quilt kits, but after having been to Missouri Star Quilt Company in Hamilton, MO it would take a lot to impress me!

I wanted a t-shirt but this display was too hard to watch.

We split a sandwich. Neither of us were fans of having french fries ON the sandwich.

Deep fried Oreos or Twinkies for dessert.

A couple of pictures on the camera from our trip to Galveston Island State Pstk.

Where are the Piepers now? Van Alstyne, TX
