On the way, I satisfied one of the things on my bucket list. Of course, nearly everyone has been to the Alamo. However, few have visited Goliad and the grave of Col. Fannin and his men, and the site of the nearby battle site nine miles to the east. It has been on my list to visit for many years. I decided to deviate a little from my course to the coast and visit Goliad.
To Texas enthusiasts, Goliad ranks right up there just behind the Alamo......some say it was just as important as the Alamo when measuring the motivation of Texicans when fighting for independence from Mexico.
I took some photos. I may feature some of them in a future post.
I had a great time. There were great restaurants, but it was time to get back to the salt mines. I have to clear my decks, then I will get caught up with some Rowlett happenings. .
