The Fred Hartman Bridge – “Presidential Award” Winner!

I have a confession….I LOVE bridges! Hearing about the Fred Hartman Bridge from traffic reports, etc. and never having seen it..why not take a few snaps since I was already close by?! 

The bridge connects La Porte to Baytown, Texas

Lynchburg Ferry

Try the Free Lynchburg Ferry in Baytown to go to the San Jacinto Monument or Battleship Texas

The Lynchburg Ferry in has been a free ferry in Baytown, Texas since 1888! Even I am not THAT old! 🙂 It connects the North and South Independence Parkway and the San Jacinto Battleground monument, (which I will save for another post).  However, going there in a torrential downpour was probably not a wise idea…but then again…I’m rather know for doing random things that aren’t always the smartest 🙂 I wish once on the Ferry, you were allowed to get out of your car for photo ops but that’s a no-no. Still, it is a free, fun little adventure and then you can go see the San Jacinto Monument and Battleground and the Battleship Texas 

Happy wandering!
