We’re about halfway through Texas now. The following is some of the photos I’ve taken so far.
This is in a livestock auction house in Navasota that we slept in one night. I was doing a pretend auction.
This is a picture of the sunset through the roof at the same Navasota auction house.
This cat was at this lovely B&B we stayed at in Burton called the Front Porch. He was more or less a stray cat that hung out in the barn. I pet him for a while, and he fell in love with Brie and I. He stayed on the porch all night and would walk around the yard with us if we went any where. When you pet him his eyes would go all cross-eyed like they are in this picture. His name is Scruffy.
We weren’t really feeling Austin, so, as we had rented a car, decided to head down to Lockhart to sample the local BBQ scene. This town has 3 of the top BBQ joints in the state. We had intended to visit all three, but couldn’t keep going after the first two. We got put in a BBQ coma and could barely stand. This is the brisket and a garlic sausage from Black’s. We thought that we could eat some BBQ and we were wrong. There were some emmer-effers put us to shame up in this town. Naturally, they were mostly twice our size.
There were about 50 goats on this hill we road past today. They all ran down to the gate to stare at us. It was bizarre.

My favorite vegetation thus far in Texas, the prickly pear cactus.
