The Carleen Bright Arboretum is located close to Waco in Woodway Texas. The gardens weren’t hopping today, but I did find a Nature Trail, a Creek, and a Cedar Teahouse.
The Waco Suspension Bridge is a beautiful historic bridge that was first opened in 1870. It was once a toll bridge for stagecoaches, cattle, and humans. The only other way to cross the Brazos River at the time was by ferry. Now the bridge is a pedestrian bridge only, and is full of activity on beautiful, sunny days like today.
After a quick Zoo visit, I still had some more walking energy. My next stop was the Washington Avenue Bridge which spans the Brazos River in Waco.
Pretty good advice from the graffiti artist / Pac-Man fan. “Never Give Up”. Also, try this Google Doodle if you like Pac-Man.
A new pedestrian bridge has been completed recently on the University of Texas campus. The Moody Pedestrian Bridge spans Dean Keaton Street and links the Communication Building with the Belo Center for New Media. It is a fun place to walk across and photograph at sunset.
