marfa, tx: in & around
We recently visited Marfa, TX, and I can’t wait to go back. It’s perfect for a week-long writer’s retreat or creative break. I took SO many photos. I’ve already covered our stay at the Thunderbird Hotel, a lovely afternoon spent at Planet Marfa beer garden, and the PRADA:MARFA art installation. Now it’s time for a peek at the rest of Marfa.
The best meal we had while we were there was breakfast at Cochineal; it was outstanding. Best drop biscuits I’ve eaten in my life. My mouth is watering just thinking about them.
While in the area we took the opportunity to visit the McDonald Observatory for their Star Party, and we lucked out with a brilliantly clear night (it was FREEZING cold!) and a mind-blowing view of Jupiter from one of their telescopes.
Unfortunately, the Food Shark food truck wasn’t open during our visit, but I got some good shots of their vehicles.
We wandered the main strip, snapping photos, browsing the bookstore, checking out the Chinati Foundation, chatting with the owner of Stuff and her adorable little dog, Queenie, before stopping to enjoy a late afternoon cocktail on the patio of the Hotel Paisano (where they shot GIANT).
This concludes our tour of Marfa, Texas. Y’all come back now, ya hear?
