We had heard this was a great place for breakfast, so we gave it a try.

I was told this store has been in operation since the 1920’s. It caters to ranching customers.

These were behind a fence, but I really had to take a picture. Two old claw foot bathtubs looked to be storage for something.

Never did figure out what this used to be. It was vacant, but a good looking building anyway.

Marfa was a fun place to visit. A great mix of old and new, art and no art,  all commingling together as one in a West Texas kinda way.

Marfa Trip

I did a little job at the Hotel Saint George last week and while I was there the manager invited us back for a free night. So after work we headed to Marfa to spend the night and explore the next day.

This is the Hotel Saint George

The Hotel is very Marfa like, minimalist, artsy with a bookstore on one end. The room was great with very comfy King sized bed and a large shower. We loved it!!
