Check out these new loaner life jacket stations around Somervell County and the city of Glen Rose! We love how they are helping make Somervell County something special with water safety!

#SomervellCounty #Watersafety #HistoryHeartHospitality #TravelTexas

We want to thank our Somervell County Fire Department for placing our loaner life jackets out at Big Rocks Park today. This is a great addition to add water safety and layers of protection to Glen Rose, Texas Somervell County Texas and all of our Spring Break visitors as the weather warms up this week. Have you seen our life jacket stations as you have been out this week? Don’t forget to take a photo and tag us when you do.

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center

BABY ANIMAL ALERT: Spring Break is a great time to visit Fossil Rim for a number of reasons, and certainly seeing a baby giraffe is high on that list! This little beauty was born to “Nettie” on February 21 and is residing in the Giraffe Yard within the Game Preserve. She certainly seems to be a proponent of #TongueOutTuesday.

#FossilRim #SomervellCounty #TravelTexas #SpringBreak

If you visit during Spring Break (through March 22), don’t forget you can get a baked potato with chili, cheese, and sour cream or a barbecue sandwich and Chips right beside the Admission Center! At that location (daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.), you can also get Fossil Rim Jr. Burgers, Whole Pickles, popcorn, cookies, and drinks. At the snack shack on the other side of the Nature Store (daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.), we will offer Nachos, Frito Pie, Hot Dogs, chips, Whole Pickles, and drinks. Factor in the Overlook Café, as well, and having three locations operating should bring down the wait times at each one, so it is important that you are aware of all options. The capitalized items are regularly available at the café. Here’s a recent blog about the café: https://tinyurl.com/wk2hm2v. #SpudThenSafari

Does anyone else believe there is blessings in the lessons? That others cross your path for a reason? We could all use a little more Grace. Grace we give ourselves to not be so hard on us for not doing more, being more, accomplishing more. Grace we extend others when they are having a bad day. It doesn’t matter if it’s the drive thru lady that was rude, the person who cut you off, or a close friend who hurt your feelings. We are all quick to react 🙋🏼‍♀️ Lord knows that’s me with my hot temper but I also know they can’t see the struggles I’m facing nor can I see the struggles they are facing. Even though I try to kill others with kindness to show them my heart and how I love everyone as much as I can I also know that people lash out when they are hurting. We all need and deserve grace. We should all be a support group to our tribe, to our neighbor, to a stranger. You never know the reason it is happening or why it is happening to you but you just may be that person to extend Grace in the perfect timing that someone needs it. To spread positivity on someone’s darkest day. So let’s do a little challenge & giveaway pertaining to this shall we! For the next week anyone who encounters a difficult situation and instead of reacting or judging or writing someone off...instead you extend Grace & love & kindness & positivity to yourself or to others I want to hear about it 👏 Comment or Msg with your story and one random winner will get an entire jewelry package from PR’s! I want to hear all the warm & fuzzies and how you tried extra hard this week to extend Grace to whoever may need it or even yourself! Let your light shine bright this week ladies ❤️❤️❤️

PS- I only have 2 of these blush Gambler hats left! One size cinch Velcro inside & super cute when you add feathers or hat pins to make your own look ✌️
