Best news: I was supposed to have a Hill Country tour last Easter weekend. My friend Kristi and I decided to check Expedia's last minute deals and ended up spending the weekend in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was MAGICAL! I've finally just "taken off" to an unknown place.
ANYWAYS! Lol, the weekend before Easter I ended up going to San Jacinto Battlefield State Park and going up to the top, which I've never done. And I also the movie Texas Forever. I found my "happy place" and ended up grading by the ship channel, trying to find a balance of working and travelling on the weekends. Then I took the historic Lynchburg Ferry (and my first ferry ride ever). Though a short ride I loved it. Was grateful to have TH lead me in a fun direction.
Love the huge bridges in the area! My GPS actually died on me and I had to find a Best Buy. Think I stopped in Pasadena to get one. Luckily I had seen there was a $20 discount starting that day. With my camera breaking last year I had a $100 credit. So....got my GPS for FREE :) But, I could have laid down some money. Believe me, I get my moneys worth!
Coming upon the San Jacinto Monument. Love this place! So historic....and where we became the Republic of Texas. The only state to be a country :) Love my Texas!
