so what have you seen today?

You know, when I started this blog I had no idea that it was going to be a travel blog. I always envisioned it to be more along the lines of ranting about all of the screwed up things in the world, politics, served with a side of humor. I guess it just proves that you never know what you are going to do until you do it. So on to today's adventures in travel.

Once again I have headed south. I just can't get enough. So this week it is a marathon to Cuero, Goliad, Sinton, Victoria and Houston. After working in Cuero, I started on my way to Goliad. As I was driving I saw one of the coolest things (actually five of the coolest things)-- bald eagles.

In Goliad, I had a little down time since the county clerk closes for lunch. I walked around the square and read all of the plaques about the history of Goliad. My favorite was the hanging tree. Talk about swift justice. After they found you guilty of a crime they would take you outside, throw a rope over a limb and hang you. Nice appeal system they had in the 1800s. And way to make a beautiful live oak tree super creepy.

So then, it was off to Sinton. As usual, there is nothing worth writing about Sinton. Tomorrow is another day, but my drive around town this evening suggests that anything interesting will have to wait until I'm heading towards Victoria. My travels continue...

My father grew up in Cuero. Some of the houses were originally in Indianola, but were disassembled and reassembled in Cuero. Small world! I found your blog by checking my referral logs.
