Rockin' with the star of Texas
After a relaxing day spent with Captain Husband's family in Dallas, it was time for us to hit the road yet again. We had about 10 1/2 hours worth of driving in front of us, so we decided to split the last leg of the journey to El Paso in half and booked a room in Big Spring, Texas. We headed on our way and it wasn't too long before I came across something worth taking a detour: the world's largest cedar rocking chair, known as the Star of Texas, located at the Natty Flat Smoke House.
This was one of those times where I wished Sammy knew how to operate a camera because I totally would have climbed up onto the seat for an "Edith Ann" inspired photo or two, but he stayed in the car with the a/c blasting while I ran around and took the few photos that I could before the heat got the best of me. We then headed back onto I-20 where we were soon surrounded by the seemingly endless vistas of the west Texas deserts.
