Grapevine Lake/ Reservoir – beautiful Aqua Forte

This morning we decided to head out to Fort Worth and take a look at the famous stockyards aka Cattle breeding center. Enroute we stopped at Grapevine lake and was impressed by the size of the waterbody and the way the entire area has been developed. Numerous groups of young and old, couples, families, groups had all congregated at the lakesides to enjoy the outdoors. Bicycling, barbecuing, fishing, walking etc.

Most of them men were soaking in the sun by being topless. There are several Gazebo’s in the area which provide the much needed shade from the burning sun rays. For the first time we experienced the true heat of Texas. Everything here is Texas size, i.e large and heavy duty. Same with the weather, when winds blow, they take away the roofs, when it rains it floods, when it shines, it burns.

Some pictures shot at Grapevine Lake… do leave your feedback.
