We went for a long drive today through western Louisiana and eastern Texas to get to College Station. The drive was beautiful, much of it on elevated highways over swamp land. We avoided driving through Houston by taking smaller two lane highways through rural eastern Texas so there were many small towns and cows to look out through the window. We rolled into Bryan, the neighboring town to College Station around dinner time and met up with Isaac who is our gracious host during our stay here. He took us out for Texas barbeque at a landmark establishment called Martins. Delicious and full of character – photos above. Tomorrow morning, bright and early, I’m off to the Texas A&M archives.
