A Nacogdoches Dash


It was a fast-moving morning!  We started off with a quick plane ride (Jason’s stomach couldn’t handle much) for a bird’s eye view of the city.  Rusty has a passion for planes and he and his wife love to take little trips but they always come home to Nacogdoches.  Thanks for the friendly ride Rusty!

What is a saturday without a quick trip to the farmers market!   Everyone was so and kind and wanted us to try a little of everything.  We even left with some fresh fruit, cheese, and home-made salsa.  We wanted our own farm experience so one of the locals took us to The Blueberry Place.  It is a blueberry farm that is self-service and on the honor system.  You pick your own berries and weigh them when you are done.  It’s only $1.25lb!  So affordable!!!  We left our money in the bucket and that was that.  You have to love the level of trust in small towns.

We worked up an appetite at the farm so on to lunch we went.  We were taken to a local B&B and not alone.  We were joined by another couple and a few lingering spirits!  The B&B among other places in town is haunted with spirits from the past.  You can hear footsteps, see a ghost cat and on rare occasions you can even hear the piano being played by a spirit.  Not to worry, these spirits have always been friendly.

It was time to move along but we didn’t leave empty-handed.  We were given local honey, fresh-baked bread and salsa’s for the road.

We kept ourselves entertained with some Redneck Flashcards on the drive.  Here are 3 of our personal favorites!  They are so funny!

Our trek from Nacogdoches to Woodward takes us right through Dallas so we couldn’t pass by and not say hello to the family.  They even had thier own bag of goodies to send us on the road with.

We arrive at our home for the night!  We were so exhausted from the days excitement and so happy to be in a room with a comfy bed!

Not that we were going to actually get to go to bed early, nope too much to do!  We had all the fun pictures and videos to go through from Nacogdoches!  Luckily Jason’s mom packed a few goodies to keep us up for a while!  Thanks mom!

    I enjoyed your comments on your trip to Nacogdoches. We had so much fun and can’t wait to see where your next stop is. What could ever top an Airplane tour of the city, picking Blueberries fresh from the bushes,and visiting The oldest B&B with friendly spirits. Thanks so much and we hope to see you in person again.

    Sorry I missed you guys. It’s crazy how busy you have been…I’m sure you are loving every second of it!! And meeting so many cool new people!! I hear nikki wants to learn how to fly…that would be ridiculously awesome! I would brag to all of my friends! That blue berry farm sounds really cool…didn’t even know those existed, or I guess I’ve never really thought about it hah.

    I don’t know how you both are keeping up your pace! Long days of lots of driving to get from one point to the next and then the long night of editing! It looks like so much fun if you had time to enjoy yourselves!

    The brownies you left with us were delicious! I need to get the name of the shop, everyone I have shared them wants to know. The bread was really good too! Lots of baking going on down there!

    Hope you get to enjoy the holiday! Do you get a day to relax and enjoy?

    I did not know blueberries grew on bushes.
