texas road trip : lakes and camping and east texas

2016 August 13
by dena





camp creek, tx: middle school bff’s lake house north east of college station. spent the first few days journaling in the shade and floating in the lake.





bremond, tx : family farm house. had an alone day/ night. highlight was going to the walmart in marlin for my “outing” and then a $3 breakfast taco that you know i made stretch for 2 meals.

waco, tx: had an alone day exploring. the checker-outer at CVS recommended it and what the heck – i don’t know what tv is so obviously had no clue what to expect. ate lunch at taco bell. did internet things at a cool coffee shop // bar called dichotomy. but, not like THAT cool, don’t worry double trouble.

west, tx: relived a childhood memory of going to this stop n’ go kolache store AND went to one other weird place, but i’ll share on a separate post.




kennard, tx // davy crockett nation forest : met up with a boy i like and his cousins for some camping in davy crockett national forest (north east texas). did camping things like drink cheap beers and read while the boys mess with fire, swim in a lake, and go on night hikes. also explored the caddo mounds and cute little downtown nacogdoches. IMG_0384


broaddus, tx : visited aunt sandy on lake sam rayburn (a little more north east). fed the chickens, did crafts, make pizza dough.

this was basically the first half of my trip. i’ll do another one about my time in the hill country. BUT, i’m leaving tomorrow morning before sunrise for a arizona // colorado road trip so don’t make me do a calendar. (sorry all y’all who read and care about those …) but i will be back in 10 days and will do one then. okay. BYE.

IMG_0372i typed out a whole long thing about how sorry i was to have not posted anything non-calendar in so long and blah blah blah, but then deleted it because – that’s dumb. no need to enter more guilt into the world. so anyway, here are some pictures from last (heck, not even last – i’ve been on one since then EKKK) texas road trip. anyway, i did one of these “places i stayed” posts from my kentucky + tenessee trip last year and loved the format. so here’s another:

1 . middle school bff’s lake house “camp creek” near madisonville, tx // 2 . family house in my dad’s home town bremond, tx // 3 . camping at davy crockett nation forrest with some new and newer friends // 4 . woodward lumber hostel in san antonio, tx // 5 . aunt sandy’s house on lake sam rayburn in east texas // also, i didn’t take pictures but i stayed at my second cousin dena’s house in gruene, tx + rachel currier’s new place in austin . so yep .
