San Felipe de Austin State Historical Site And The Lovely Ms. Anice Divin

The first weekend in June, I headed out for the day – just hopped in the car and decided to see where to road took me 🙂 

I ended up here, in front of the San Felipe de Austin State Historical Site.  It’s right around the corner practically from Stephen F. Austin State Park so I was shocked that I hadn’t visited earlier as I’ve camped at the park several times.  This is where Stephen F. Austin began the town of San Felipe de Austin in Mexican Texas back in 1823.

Stephen F. Austin State Park in San Felipe, Texas (short drive from Houston)

Today we are off to see Stephen F. Austin State Park – less than an 30-45 minute drive from Houston and a great place to camp!

While I didn’t go camping on this outting, I included some photos from when my daughter and I and our pups went camping in 2015. We had a blast camping there and did some geocaching there too.  Let me tell ya…finding a micro-geocache is hard (full credit to my daughter finding that one!)!!! The trails there are well-kept and plenty of birds can be spotted here too…especially my red cardinals 🙂
