One Sunday afternoon during my recent trip to Texas, one of the grands and I went on a photo taking outing. Georgetown, known for its fine Victorian commercial architecture, is not far from their home. It is the county seat of Williamson County. The town's commercial center is laid out as a square of buildings with the courthouse in the middle. The San Gabriel river runs through the city just blocks from the square. Georgetown is also home to Southwestern University, which was founded in 1840 and is the state's oldest university.
EG was my companion and was sweetly willing to wander with her crazy picture taking Gramma.
She amused herself by finding all sorts of sidewalk treasures.
I amused myself by taking photos of treasure of this kind.
I love it that this old movie palace has found a new life as a local community theater.
On our way into town, we drove by the San Gabriel Motor Court. I had to turn around and take a couple of photos. It is just the sort of retro place that would be a fun overnight spot to spend the night. The river is just steps away.
Be sure to pop over and see Jean's Holiday Snaps today too!
