Sunday 11-3 Nolan Creek

What a beautiful day!!!

We had another beautiful day. It got into the high 60s and the sun was shining.

We didn't have anything on our agenda. Larry suggested that we go for a walk. We decided to go to Belton and walk along Nolan Creek using the trail. We started at Yettie Polk Park and walked to Confederate Park. As we were walking we saw a lot of families enjoying the parks along Nolan Creek. Families were feeding the ducks, walking the trail, fishing in Nolan Creek and rolling in the grass. The fountain in Yettie Polk Park was running today. They had done a lot of work on it. It was painted red, white and blue and they have a sign next to it that tells the history of Yettie Polk Park. The park was named after Yettie Polk, she and her four children were killed during a flood in 1913. On the way back to the car I wanted to get a picture of the Bell County Courthouse. We walked around downtown Belton by the courthouse. It was a beautiful day so why not enjoy the park.

Welcome to Yettie Polk Park

When we were visiting Louise we parked our car in her driveway under a big tree. When we got home we noticed that the birds liked our car very much. Larry doesn't like to see our vehicles filthy so on the way to Yettie Polk Park we stopped by the car wash and gave the car a bath. We took it to Today's Car Wash in Belton. It opened in the summer and we like taking the car there because you can get a basic wash for $5.00. They also supply towels to dry off your vehicle. 

In the afternoon we watched a couple of episodes of GizWiz and some YouTube videos.

In the evening we tried to stream on Amazon through the television but it wouldn't work. I was thankful that Larry can also stream Amazon through our Chromcast. We were able to stream a couple of episodes of Midsomer Mystery. Then I read. I completed the World Tour Solitaire Challenge and the Daily Challenges. We had a very nice day.
