Waltzing across Texas Part 2

We continued to tour our great state
with my English family

Magnolia Beach- 40 minutes from our house

 I took the girls to the beach
while the boys went fishing out of Seadrift, Texas

 We visited historical Goliad
Goliad's Town Square

 Outside my favorite shop on the square

Goliad's historical courthouse set in the middle of the square

A few miles outside Goliad we visited
 Mission Espiritu Santo

 Presidio La Bahia
(The fort where Fannin and his men
were captured and later massacred)

Remember the Alamo, Remember Goliad


The Chapel attached to the fort
Still an active church

On down the road......

 and we found ourselves in Cureo
(home of the oil boom)

While in Cureo we ate a delicious lunch
at the Bohnhof Cafe
(they tried Fried Pickles)

 and our last day we headed out
through the Texas countryside

and arrived in Shiner, Texas

 Spoetzl Brewery
Home of Shiner Beer
(a favorite with the English)

 we also popped into our favorite shop in Shiner
Antiques, Art & Beer

But they say all good things must come to an end....

So today we gave our English family
a big Texas hug
and bid them goodbye

Every Little Birdie says-
  Till next September that is.....

when we visit them in Jolly Ole England!!!!
