In the past month, we’ve traveled to Corsicana about 3 or 4 times! It is only about 25 miles from us—there is so much culture, history and shopping to be found there. Also, the Collin Street Bakery is there, they are known for the world famous FRUIT CAKE! (maybe one day I’ll go there and show you what it’s like)
In the mean time, you get to see---
Navarro County Old court house—I believe it is the Official’s building, I don’t think they hold court there. Currently, it is being remodeled and preserved.
First United Methodist Church- A beautiful building… my photos don’t do it justice. The spire on the front corner stretches toward the sky!
Pearce Museum at Cook Education Center (across from Navarro College)::
I failed miserable to get a photo in front of this building, using the timer—it was starting to rain. Apparently, I can’t operate camera in the rain and stand on my mark… or get my husband to look at the camera… hahaha!
Oh, now he is looking at the camera!
Visited Aldi Food Market. This is the closest one mileage-wise to us and we were already in town for the Museum—so why not?
Important to remember about Aldi (you may know this already, I did not)
- BYOB—bring your own bag.box/basket (or pay for their bags or you can grab a box out of the bin)
- Have a quarter- You must have a quarter to unlock the cart and use it. You get it back when you return your cart … an incentive!
- Limited items—don’t plan to buy ALL your groceries there—the health and beauty section was about as big as one END Cap at a normal grocery store by comparison.
- You only get one chance at first impressions—eh!
Back to the sights of Corsicana; I’d love to go one day and just take pictures of downtown Corsicana—
They still have cobble stone streets.
They still have shops and businesses downtown. It is a thriving community.
This past week there were storms rolling through our area. Several people north of us received hail damage. We didn’t get hit with much, mostly just rain.
The sunset light up the sky like a blazing fire! It was gorgeous.
This rainbow appeared for a few seconds—south east of us!
These are just a few of the happenings around here--
‘Til next time, be blessed and enjoy the journey!
My grace is sufficient for you; for My Power is made perfect in weakness.
