Dallas Sweetheart Walk – 02/13/2016

The walk started at Sports Authority and we walked over to North Park Mall.  I almost didn’t take my camera, after all how much would there be in a mall to photograph?  Sure glad I carried it along.

We entered the Mall and took the escalator up to the 2nd floor where we did one lap.  Turns out there was lots of artwork to view from up there.
