Out in the suburb of McKinney…

is a half-completed mixed-use development named Adriatica.  it is loosely designed after a historic Croatian village.  They were going full speed until the commercial and residential real estate and constuction industries crashed.  And then this thing ground to a halt.  This is a great place to photograph; I had Owie with me today, and we had to get back, so I did not explore as much as I would have liked.  Here is a pic of the chapel.  Located next to it is a 7-story bell tower, and future plans call for a docked 17th-century sailing vessel that serves as a coffee shop for the community.  Very unique.  Great architecture, picturesque setting.  I will be back.
