Our New Year's Day 2009

This morning went by as usual but instead of the forecast cloud we had sun! Because of that around noon we decided to go out and do some sightseeing. However on our way inland toward the town of Goliad we had cloud, a few drops of rain and after we arrived at the Presidio La Bahia (shown below), we got some sun. This Presidio is before you get to Goliad.

Gordon is very interested in old churches and Goliad therefore is right up his alley. There's this one as well as a Mission that we found so far.

Gordon took my photo at the amphitheater

From there we went toward town and found the Goliad State Park which houses the Mission Espiritu Santo shown below.

And here's the altar and the pulpit

There is a campground at the State Park which we just might return to. Gordon would like to take more photos in this area. It looks like a really nice campground with water and electric and a dump station.

On to the town of Cuero. It looks like they build their streets around the live oak trees.

Here's the courthouse

I thought this was an interesting name for a lawyer. Would you be a client of his?

On to Victoria where the plan had been to take some twilight photos downtown. We arrived a bit early so looked up a Taco Bell for dinner. It was still too early and we were tired so we came home but I saw this sign and thought it was an interesting concept.

It was a lovely day with a high of 75F (24C).

    I have been enjoying your travel photos very much. Gordon's gallery is fantastic! Thanks for your posts. I am really interested in the area you mention on this post. Is the RV park a public facility or a privately owned park?

    Best wishes to you in the New Year,
