The Lights of Johnson City

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

First of all, I want to say thanks to those of you that left comments after my last post, which helped ease the embarrassment that I'm still suffering from - and the trauma. It's nice to know that we're all a little too human sometimes...

And for your viewing pleasure, I wanted to share some pictures with you from downtown Johnson City, Texas, home of President Lyndon Johnson. We're a thriving metropolis of 1,000 people, but millions of lights.

This is an old historic house, now a business just across the square.

This is a shot of the grounds around PEC, the Pedernales Electric Co-op. This picture doesn't do it justice; the lights wrapped in the gnarly branches of these old Live Oaks is just stunning.

This is the courthouse, and as luck would have it the lights were on in the building when I just happened to have my camera with me. I'll have to swing back by when the lights on the inside are not on. The entire courthouse is covered in lights - It's just beautiful!

This is another shot of the grounds at PEC. You have to walk in it to really appreciate it. For those of you in the area, it's sure worth a trip. Santa also makes a stop here on Friday & Saturday nights ...
I'll get some more good shots for you later. I'm going to go have a cup of hot cocoa and be all Christmas-y. I would also wrap presents if I had any to wrap ...
Looks like I'll be shopping on Christmas Eve - AGAIN.
