Memo: Historical Texas Scenery

On the principle that a picture is worth a thousand words, I hereby post a scattering of pictures taken by me in various locations around San Antonio, Gonzales and Goliad, as well as some representative landscapes of the coastal more-or-less-flatlands.

Countryside with oak tree and wildflower meadow - South of San Antonio. No desert.

Hoping that you will take this to heart, upon scouting for appropriate outdoor locations for a drama focusing on the events of 1835-1836 in Texas, and that any particularly dry and desert-appearing locations will be crossed off the list.

I remain as always,

  1. GOOD FOR YOU!!! Do they even know about East Texas?
    Just read your post on Sarah Hoyt, very interesting.

    Hi, Ruth – apparently not. I am considering doing a review of the whole ghastly mess, but ethically, I ought to watch more than just the first episode before I blast away. And I am not sure how many hits a flat-screen TV can take.
