Fort Worth Japanese Garden

A couple of years ago, I visited the Japanese Garden in Fort Worth. It looks so beautiful, when Autumn arrives in the garden. Here are some photos I’ve captured in 2015.

Rock of Ages ~ Casa Mañana, Fort Worth, Texas

Kevin and I saw the musical “Rock of Ages” at the Casa Mañana in Fort Worth, last night. It was very refreshing listening to songs, we used to know every word of the lyrics back when we were teenagers. Surprisingly, I found out right inside the theater, that we got seats in the first row. We were so close to the stage, that “Stacee Jaxx” couldn’t resist flipping a thong in my face. I kept the thong as a souvenir. 😀 😉

Overall, the show was awesome. We had an amazing evening, enjoying great music on a Saturday evening. Kevin and I definitely have to repeat that. ❤

Fort Worth At Night – Tarrant County Courthouse

When Sam, my now 22-year-old son, visited the United States two years ago, we went to Fort Worth for one evening. It was a perfect February evening to walk around and see some famous landmarks of Fort Worth. In this blog I focus on the Tarrant County Courthouse.

Fort Worth, Texas

Still living in Germany, when I was younger I needed to get away from my hometown, Würzburg, sometimes. I bought a train ticket and made a day trip to Munich. Seeing something different, with another but still similar mentality gave me a mental boost. I came back happy and went to work telling what I did on my day off, the next day. Munich is in the same state and has a lot of similarity. But it was still different from Würzburg.

In the US, I feel the same way. When I need to see something different than the Dallas, Denton, or Collin County cities, I drive to Fort Worth. It still has the charm of a Texas city and is more relaxed than Dallas. It seems to go in a slower pace. And I like that about Fort Worth.

Fort Worth, Texas (2014)

In October 2014, Sara and I decided to go to Fort Worth to walk along the north side of Trinity River. I wanted to capture some photos of the skyline, the Paddock Viaduct and the Old TXU North Main Power Plant. Packed with some snacks, juices and water, we were on our way. Parking in Fort Worth can be the same “nightmare” as in any other big city. But we figured out to get around it. While Sara was chasing a squirrel back and forth, and played “Hide ‘n’ Seek” with it, I could photograph the historical landmarks along the river. 😉
