After the prison museum we headed up along 45 until we got to Fairfield where we stopped to grab dinner at Something Different .
I tried their burger with sweet potato fries and honey tried their chicken fried steak, was quite good.
Then we headed up on the last part of todays journey.

Todays first stop is at the Salt Palace in Grand Saline. The building is built out of salt blocks and has been rebuilt 4 times due to the salt wearing out. Was an interesting place and you get to take some samples with you. While there i saw a ad for the Edgewood Heritage village, so that is where we went next.
After lunch we stopped by the Graham’s Market.
Got some fresh produce and then headed back to Mabank.
Later on we went out for some mexican food for dinner.
When we got back to the house a storm came over and we got to enjoy some nice lightning before we crashed for the night.
