We discovered a new park close to the San Jacinto Monument. I will have to get pics next time. There is the most beautiful house next to the water. But I don't think I would want to live so close to the water. We had planned on going to the Monument. But when we got to the ferry, it was on the way out. So we didn't want to wait for the next one. Bri isn't that patient!!! So I will go across the Ship Channel Bridge and around the other side next time. So we just went to lunch and wandered in stores.
For those of you who aren't familar, the battle of San Jacinto is when Santa Anna was defeated and Texas became a Republic. I am just learning about it myself. It is a wonderment when you think how far you are standing from the Alamo. This battle here lasted 18 minutes. We are planning to go to the re-enactment next month. I am a history buff and so is my hubby.
If you didn't know, I met my hubby at a Civil War Re-enactment. I will have to scan some photos.
Have a wonderful day.
