Hi friends! It seems so long since a belle last wrote but I’m BACK! I’ve been busy squaring away some things, but missed y’all dearly. I’m currently living in Houston, which means Tamika & I will have more exciting things to share! You’ll see me playing around the city and posting on all the fun I encounter along the way.
On Monday, I drove to Kingsville to visit Kings Ranch, which is about 4 hours away from Houston. Kings Ranch has been open over 150 years and has all kinds of wildlife on the ranch. Cattle, deers, peacocks, you name it–I probably saw it!
The Kings Ranch has a cool museum where I got to see some old brands (pictured above) that were used on animals. The museum really takes you back in time and I loved every minute of it! In addition, I saw some classic looking cars, and y’all know me likey vintage! If you follow us on Instagram, you’ll see pics I posted of the live peacocks. I’d never seen one in person so pardon my ignorance…hehe! The sis laughs when I say ‘live peacock!’ Cool fact: there are over 356 species of birds at the ranch!
While touring the ranch, I felt a sense of peace. The place is MASSIVE! Land goes on for miles and miles. The ranch is one of the largest in the world and has over 825,000 acres! I had so much fun just looking at all the green space. It literally took my breath away! For those who like to shop (like yours truly), Kings Ranch also boasts a saddle shop that sells all sorts of leather goods and other items. Overall, I had a ball hanging out at the ranch. I even imagined myself as a dainty cowgirl!
