~we had to get away: part 1~
Spring fever settled in on our household heavy last week and we knew we had to GET AWAY! Saturday morning found us up early and driving east to the land of pines. Three and a half hours later we found ourselves in Jefferson, TX. Jefferson is a fun little town full of antique shops, fun eateries and tons of steamboat history. We decided to take part in a boat tour of Big Cypress Bayou.
This gnarly, old tree is one of the first sights we enjoyed as our tour began.
Cypress trees have really unusual root structures.
We saw TONS of snapping turtles. These two were sunning themselves as we floated by.
A lovely view down the bayou (which I pronounce BY- YOU; but the locals pronouce BY-O)
Our tour guide shared local stories and historic tales.
