We stopped briefly in Columbus and Ellinger on the way, spent some time in the Bastrop State Park and on the way back stopped for lunch in Giddings and made a drive to Sebin.
Basically I came back with a few documentation shots, some texture and a few crucifix so I guess it was worthwhile. Really would like to have some clouds in the sky. This morning on the way to the studio beautiful white fluffy clouds filled the sky—I cursed my fate all the way.
Monday we had pizza in Bastrop at Neighbor’s Kitchen just as the sun was going down.
The next day we spent the morning in the state park and did a brief walk around of Bastrop before heading back to Houston.
The old highway bridge over the Colorado River has been turned into a walkway. Along the sides people have secured padlocks to the chain length fence. Alcy says the story is that if you have moved to Bastrop and never intend to leave you ‘lock’ yourself in with a lock on the bridge. A take off on the Love Bridge in Paris where couples lock their love in by placing a lock on the bridge. The bridge in Paris collapsed from the weight of the locks. I don’t think the bridge over the Colorado is in much danger but it did make an interesting grouping of photographs.
