Last week I had the opportunity to escape from winter for a few days with a trip to Dallas, Texas. I was delighted to find the temperature in the 70’s with bright sunshine. What a change from a cold, snowy, grayish scene I had left mere hours before!
I was in Dallas for a conference so I was actually in downtown Dallas. When I saw the flowers in bloom at a local park, I immediately took some pictures of them. Those flowers couldn’t have looked prettier to me, particularly since I know it will be several months before I’ll see them again (at least outdoors.) Anyway, this is what I saw:
Here are some of the sights I saw downtown, including some gigantic Christmas ornaments found in various places around the city. A scene featuring cattle and cowboys seemed to be a popular attraction, because everyone there had their cameras out!
While I was in Dallas I had to visit the flagship Neiman Marcus department store. The building itself is a Texas landmark, and naturally I had to go inside to admire the interior design (this includes the merchandise). I was told that the green marble walls by the escalators are unique, and this is what they look like:
I want to say “Thank you” to Dallas for being such a friendly place, and the weather was perfect, too!
