Mini Road Trip Adventures with a Giant Squirrel and Pralines???!

A while back while passing by the small town of Refugio, Texas I saw the above Texas Boot, Blue bonnets and Cactus and have to snap a quickly.  Sadly, looks like South Texas Kitchen at 201 S Alamo St, Refugio, TX 78377 has since closed but I liked the sculpture 🙂  Refugio had 2,890 residents as of the 2010 census.

Tree Spirit Carvings in St. Simons Island

I thought I’d reach back into an old road trip album to show your these cool “Tree Spirit” carvings by sculpture, Keith Jennings.  Jennings started with a tree in his backyard in 1982 and then was later commissioned to do his interesting and wonderful carving works in St. Simons Island which is right of the coast of Georgia.  Each tree carving took 2-4 days. This is their locations. Here is the Facebook link.
