Lights in Johnson City

After our Thursday night "Thirsty Thursday", so of us decided to make the trip to Johnson City (hometown of former President Lyndon B Johnson) to have a bite to eat and see their incredible display of lights.  I'll be sharing this adventure with you today.

Our destination for food was the Pecan Street Brewery, which is right across the street from the incredibly decorated court house. 



Our food was wonderful - hamburgers, grilled chicken, pecan and honey crusted chicken, fries, etc. etc.  Just delightful.  Be sure to click on the link to see more about the place. There was a funny sign, I thought I'd share with you just for kicks. (Animal lovers, please don't be offended.)



We left the Brewery and drove just a couple of blocks south of the courthouse to see the display by the Pedernales Electric Company.  I'll just load all of the pictures from this spot for your enjoyment.  Sorry if they are a bit blurred, but you will definitely get the sense of the Christmas lights there.





The blue on those trees around the square was very intense, but I think it came across for you to enjoy.  Since the tree is blue, I'll join in to Blue Monday with Sally.  Thanks for hosting.

It simply amazes me the time and patience to light every single branch, sub branch and trunk of the trees. Not a light out of place - I love those decorations and I had a good giggle with your sign. Have a wonderful day.

What beautiful lights Linda Kay, you did great on these photos. Interesting that it is LBJ's town. Every time I see a pretty display of flowers on the highways, I always thank Ladybird Johnson for her particular interest in doing that. It sure lights up a long journey and your photos light up my day. Thank you :)

Fabulous pics!! What gorgeous lights. I remember seeing the Perdanales River.
I've only had lamb once. I served it to my husband and he was so upset when he found out what it was!!!

Does Johnson City have a lot of historical sites related to the president? I loved visiting his museum and library.

Love,
Janie
