Journey and Adventure–Week 2 Nacogdoches, TX

Monday, August 10th I hitched the fifth wheel to the pickup for the second time by myself. I arrived in Nacogdoches, TX to 106° with an official feel-like temperature of over 110. With the electricity hooked up first so the ac could start running, I completed one task and then cooled off, repeating that process until setup was fairly finished. It took a long time.

Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas. Nine flags have flown over the it beginning with the French flag in 1685. 

Enjoying Historic Downtown Nacogdoches, I began with the Charles Bright Visitor Center. Inside this wonderfully restored federal building are displays of historic interest and information about what to see and do.
The surrounding plaza is beautifully landscaped with markers and statues depicting some of Nacogdoches wealth of history.

There are many restored historic buildings containing the large number of locally-owned specialty and antique stores.

What a feeling of falling through the hole in “Alice in Wonderland”.
