There are many sites in Dallas to visit, but we were short on time and caught just a few local highlights. Since my goddaughter lives in Irving, we concentrated on those areas for short spurts of sightseeing. The following were highlights of that whirlwind afternoon.
The Mustangs of Los Colinas was an exquisite stop. It’s a sculpture of spirited mustangs running through a body of water–all set amongst a busy office complex. The artwork by Mr. Robert Glen was meticulous. The horses were captured in all their majesty and it was easy to imagine them stampeding through the water, wind blowing in their manes, and running on strong, graceful legs. We were visiting by day in bright sunlight and it was breathtaking. I can’t imagine the view at night. The Mustangs of Las Colinas were amazing.
Our next stop was the Irvin Veterans Memorial Park. This park paid tribute to the local servicemen and women who sacrificed all for the United States of America. It’s a peaceful place to reflect and give honor to those who have served to protect our nation.
Our visit to Dallas was short and very productive. The time with family was the most important and special. We can’t wait to visit again.
Now, it’s on to Oklahoma!
