This morning I cycled with my friend, Jo, in the dark and mist to the local 6:30 a.m. sunrise Easter service – an annual joint Baptist and Methodist community service in Coldspring, Texas. The affable Pastor opened his sermon talking about the excitement of waiting for a deer hunt and comparing it to Easter. After talking about the long wait for the sun to come up while sitting and watching for deer, he launched into an a capella rendition of his favorite song from Annie. After plenty of hymnal singing, we joined the friendly congregations for their special Easter breakfast, including a local specialty that turned out to be pigs in a blanket! There were plenty of sweets, too.
Easter treats, hopes for sunshine, and morning mist over an east Texas bayou.
Today is our last full day in Texas. The last few days have offered a host of culinary options and then some.
If cows could talk, I’m sure they would recommend the pies, cakes, and root beer over ribs.
There is always the unconventional option…
There are great NON meat options in Texas, too!
I would have loved to have met these folks who appear to like signs as much as I do. This was actually their front yard.
Here are a few other front yards and scenes from the bike as we head east to cross into Louisiana tomorrow.
And at the end of the day…
