Texas has an abundance of city names we have encountered in other travels.
For instance, we used to live in Onalaska WI and here we find ourselves in Onalaska TX.
On our way northward I saw a sign for Moscow TX, but failed to snap a photo of it as my fingers were busy knitting baby caps. No, I'm not pregnant...explanation to follow on this later.
Further up the road is Paris TX and we'll be stopping on the way through tomorrow to photo their Eiffel Tower. Yeah, I know...tacky. But that's the way we roll.
But for today found us driving to Sulphur Springs TX to use the toilets there. Huh? Okay, even if we don't really need the facilities, I can't pass up the opportunity to visit the See-Through Public Toilets. There's no signage - just a glass square found in the town square. I made Left Brain go first...just to be safe.
These are constructed from one way glass. The person inside taking care of business can view the public walking around outside, but they can't see in....pretty cool, huh? Here's how it looks before sitting down. Nice view of the streets and park.
This is a shot of the courthouse while seated on My Throne. It's nice to have a room with a view.
Hey! They said you couldn't see anything! What's Left Brain pointing at? I found out he did that just to freak me out...and it did!
The courthouse square is very nice, with large chess and checker sets. All the tables have a checkerboard pattern built in and the chairs are of a wicker design and very comfy.
After goofing off in the bathrooms we went across the street to Bayou Jacks for some Cajun food.
The decor was cute, with this sign showing where the bathrooms were. But why use these with the really fun ones across the street?
The food was delish, the service incredible and they played Zydeco music in the background. The waiter's shirt had me a bit concerned, but we learned that Dirty Balls are an appetizer. Well, at least that was his story.
Then it was back to the Ramblin Fever RV Park for a good night's rest before we drive northward again the next day.
