I thought you might be interested in seeing the dairy barn Robert!
Some of those big gambrel-roofed dairy barns were showpieces for prosperous dairy farmers, and display finish carpentry on the inside that you wouldn't expect in a barn. I saw one with the interior walls finished with tongue-and-groove carsiding and all nicely trimmed out around doorways and windows.

Very good eye, photoLith, you are correct. The Bald Eagle was hanging out with the Flock of Seagulls on that day.
BTW, nice shots.

Victoria, TX, about two and half hours southwest of Houston.


Mission Nuestra Señora del Espíritu Santo de Zúñiga built in 1749-1758 near Goliad, TX


Presidio La Bahía, the best preserved Spanish Colonial fort in North America, it was built in the mid 1700s and was just about half a mile away from Mission Nuestra Senora del Espiritu Santo de Zuniga. The mission was where they brainwashed the natives into Catholicism, which failed miserably and the fort was built to keep the French out of the northern territories of New Spain and to protect the mission. The original town of Goliad was built around the fort and this hillside would have been covered with adobe buildings and houses at one point, until it was burnt down in the Texas Revolution during the 1830s.

Did you manage to take enough photos of Boston for a photothread? I deeply, truly miss that great city.

Yeah, I'll try to get a Boston photothread up in the next few days. Perhaps along with shots from Portland, Keene NH and a few other towns along the way!
