When it comes to United States independence, one usually thinks of the US as a whole, while in Texas, it clearly started in Goliad. Goliad, rich in it’s history boasts beautiful architecture in it’s court house and it’s Spanish Mission Espiritu Santu. Dar spent the day in Goliad, photographing the birthplace of Texas independence.
While on a walking tour of San Antonio, we photographed the incredible Bexar County Courthouse, the Guinness World Record holding Fairmont Hotel which was actually moved 5 blocks, and the Majestic Theater. The architecture in Texas is incredible, from the Missions, to the courthouses, to the theaters and dance halls.
Knowing we were passing through San Antonio Texas, we booked a full week so we could completely experience the history of the alamo. The Alamo was VERY high on Rob’s list of places to see in Texas and he was not disappointed. We enjoyed touring the grounds, learning about the history and that Davy Crockett fought and died there. Being Canadian, neither of us was clear about that aspect.
