After being out in the cold and windy weather for several hours on day 3 of our trip, I went to bed not feeling very well and woke up the next morning not that much better. Hoyoung also needed to take it slow and rest up for his jobs this weekend back home so on day 4, the Sprinkles took the car to check out Big Bend National Park and we stayed in Marfa.
We took some more time to walk around the streets. Because day 3 had been so windy and cold, we thought yesterday would be even colder with the cloud cover. To our surprise, it was actually much better than the day before because there was very little wind and not as cold even without the sun. Unexpectedly, we were able to enjoy walking around and soak in the eclectic mix of architecture.
We checked out local shops, like Marfa Book Company.
The shop also had a small room with a podium and chairs set up for lectures and an unexpected and nice gallery space in the back corner.
After walking around, we were a little hungry so we stopped by Squeeze Marfa for a bite. We enjoyed the unexpected nice (and not windy) weather on their patio.
After lunch, we made our way towards Frama to get a cup of coffee. On the way, we saw this rooster, just chilling in the front yard. Unexpected, indeed!
Frama at Tumbleweed Laundry is so unique and charming, completely unexpected. You can do your laundry and grab coffee or ice cream or get on the internet or all of the above!
I also really wanted to visit the Marfa Public Library. It is a small place but you can tell it is such a big part of the community.
On our way back to El Cosmico, we snapped some photos of each other, too!
We absolutely loved our stay in Marfa and at El Cosmico. We can't wait to come back!
All photos were taken with iPhone and a Fuji x100s camera.
