I grew up 8 miles south of Dawson in what was once the El Dorado community. We owned a 241 acre blackland farm. One can see "
Hill" from my old farm. The bluebonnets are spectacular in the spring there!
Be sure to visit Kemah -- off Highway 146 midway between Galveston and
-- for great on-the-water dining and peoplewatching. If you love boating, you'll love the parade of boats of all kinds heading out into the bay.
Be prepared to have your deodorant handy! Walking around
in the summer is like being in a steamroom. I've never perspired so much in my entire life!
My father, Liston Posey was born in
. When he was 8 - 12 years old, he climbed to the top of the bell tower and stood on the two criss-crossed pieces of iron,at the very top, and laughed. Been there more than a few times myself, and it scared me into a cold sweat to hear that story. I looked at the steps that went all the way up the bell tower one time and knew that my daddy was nuts when he did it.
I lived in
for nine years. Austin is very cool, except that it's so darned hot in the summer. Check out Barton Springs pool in Zilker park, an enormous spring-fed pool, always seventy degrees, perfect for a scorching day. A music reviewer for the Austin paper once wrote "Who's playing this weekend? Ho, hum, the usual embarassment of riches." No kidding. You can find live music any night of the week. Halloween in Austin is a sight to behold, thousands of people partying downtown.
hosts South by Southwest ("SXSW"), one of the largest music festivals world. The music passes are very expensive, but there are enough free music shows going on every day to keep you busy, so it's worth coming even if you don't get a music pass. Just don't expect to be able to book a hostel or hotel unless you book your room maybe about a year in advance.
