We left Brazos and drove to the Sugarland area which is just a little southwest of Houston. We had a few things to take care of in Houston before heading west, mainly picking up the check from the sale of the van. From there we drove to Gonzales, Texas. That area looked more like what I picture when I think of Texas-lots of longhorn cattle and oil wells.
Gonzales is near Lockhart which is known as the Barbeque capital of Texas. We drove there one day to try the barbeque and it was definitely worth the drive. Texas barbeque is all about the brisket, sausage and ribs and we had a little of each. It was fantastic!
Lockhart is a very quaint little town and has been the setting for a lot of movies. One of my favorite movies, "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" was partially filmed there. They have a beautiful courthouse that was featured in the movie. I took a couple of photos of it...
Thanks for stopping by!
