Victorian splendor

LOCATION: Alley Camp ACOE Campground at Lake o’ the Pines, near Jefferson, TX

WEATHER: What else? Hot and humid. 100ish

CAMPGROUND: See description from first night.

Historic Jefferson was our destination today. We are about 15 miles from the town. It is really cute, with beautiful Victorian mansions, many of which are B&Bs, and a very well-preserved downtown, full of antique shops.

Jefferson is in my book “Thousand Places to Go Before You Die” and is particularly famous at Christmas with home tours and a decorated downtown.

We found a bar/restaurant that looks like a cowboy saloon. With a nod toward nearby Louisiana, we shared a half muffaletta. (Can’t imagine trying to split a whole one).

We drove around town, admiring all the restoration. George particularly liked these gas stations that have been converted to shops.

We stopped at the visitors’ center where they loaned us a fishing rod. Back at the campground, George checked it out….

DINNER: Leftover riced cauliflower/hamburger casserole and broccoli/cheese.
