One way I treat myself is an occasional trip to Silverton, Texas; it Is an easy 40-minute scenic drive with very little traffic. I visit Briscoe Marketplace and Ghost Horse Gallery / Night Owl Espresso & Tea and then head home. Today I detoured to an old family boat race & fishing spot, Lake Mackenzie. My grandfather built and raced boats, and this was a favorite spot. I had not been to the lake area since my childhood. It was a beautiful drive.
