"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


God's country

Well, the second most important day of the year is almost here. That's right, Sunday is Texas Independence Day! Longtime Texas in Africa readers know that we like to make a big deal out of the anniversary of the adoption of the Texas Declaration of Independence.

Since I'll be spending most of the weekend camping at one of the best places in Texas, I thought we'd start the obnoxiousness early this year. And what better place to start than with one of the best songs about Texas out there?

Enjoyed the scenes from around the state. Must confess that it made me just a bit nostalgic. Hope you enjoy camping at Enchanted Rock. Have you ever camped at Pedernales Falls? It's a great place to wear out either a bathing suit or a pair of shorts, sliding down the waterfalls over the rocks.

Glad it reminded you of home, Gary. I've been wanting to go to Pedernales Falls for YEARS, but it is really hard to get a reservation. Seems everybody loves it. :)
