Monday Escape: The Art Deco Pride and Joy of Shamrock, Texas

Working on a little project for the blog over the weekend left the undercurrent of wanderlust I regularly feel panging even more loudly in my mind, but I am of course a bit homebound. Still, I thought we’d zip back across Route 66 to take another brief peek at the famed U-Drop-Inn of Shamrock. Really, I could look at this place all day long, and we certainly spent a great deal of time there during our visit! I’ve yet to see the neon illuminated, but am sure to one of these days.

Anyone else dealing with a raging case of cabin fever?

Have a beautiful Monday…even if you’d rather be on the road, too!

  1. Oh, you know, I really would rather be on the road – even if that road is currently getting barraged by snowflakes because Old Man Winter got a second wind here over the past few days and it’s been snowier than ever so far this winter. Ever since our awesome trip to Calgary last September, the road just keeps calling to me and calling to me and I can’t wait to hopefully take another trip or two somewhere this year as well (not sure when or where yet, but I like to believe we’ll be on the road and staying in hotels again soon).

    Beautiful photos – the vibrancy of the blue Texas sky there is marvelous!

    Big hugs & many thanks for your excellent comment on my post about USPS’s rate hikes. I too completely agree that there is a huge market just waiting for someone with the means to do it, to offer affordable shipping options (perhaps this will finally come to light when post or all countries inevitably shut down their postal systems entirely one day).

    • Glad we’re of the same mind, Jessica! Thank you for your comments, I’m glad you enjoyed the photos.

      So far as the USPS, we shall see. It is really aggravating; even locally, I am hearing people complain that the price is not worth it, “especially for the service you get”, as one woman put it.
