Texas Spirit

Wednesday we took the
"English" to historical Goliad
to learn a little about
the spirit of Texas

We stopped at the square in Goliad
to take in a few shops

Dan played a little tune outside this shop!


Then we drove out to
Presidio La Bahia

The most fought over fort in Texas history
and the historical site of the Goliad massacre
of Fannin and his men

We learned all about the Texas Spirit
and our battle for independence

a couple of the many flags flown over Texas

The beautiful little chapel located at the fort

While we were in the museum
the temperature outside dropped
about 20 degrees
That's Texas weather for you!!

We had lunch at the
"Hanging Tree"
restaurant named
for the famous
live oak that stands
across the street in front
of the courthouse

(once used to serve justice from it's great limbs)

After a leisurely country drive home
we treated them to a Cajun Shrimp Boil
for dinner

Today was a lazy day
and warm again......

for some it was a very lazy day!!!

Tomorrow we are off to the Texas Hill Country
for five days.  Check back next week for
a post on our "bluebonnet trip"

Every Little Birdie says-
Cherrio for now.......

  1. How fun - one of these days I need to get to the Goliad area and see more of our Texas history. The bluebonnets in the hill country (I'm between Wimberley and Blanco) aren't the best this year, but they are pretty nice - I hope you and your guests have a lovely and safe trip up my way!
