Washington on the Brazos Tour
Saturday, June 20, 2009
8:30am to ?
planned by Linda & Tim Cook
We will start at the HEB at I-35 and Parmer lane.
Washington on the Brazos
We will initially drive Hwy 290, then break off the highway in Paige, taking a scenic route to Washington-On-the Brazos state historic site.
There will be two "pit stops" before arriving to the State Park. Gas stations with sodas, etc.
We will plan to stay at the Historic site for about 80 mins. Entrance fee is free
There is a $5 fee to tour the museum which looks very interesting. If the Park Rangers have enought staff on that particular day, we can have a group walk/ranger talk about the history of Independence hall (20mins).
There are short hiking trails along the Brazos river with historical markers/information. A gift shop is also available, bathrooms, water, etc. The longest trail is 1.6 miles along the Brazos. Tim and I walked it in our flipflops with no problems, looked out over the Brazos where the settlers, etc. crossed the River.
No food is available for purchase at the Park shop
Lunch will be at 1:30ish at Martha's Bloomers in Navasota.
We will gather in the parking lot by 1:15 pm and drive about 10 mins to Martha's Bloomers for a nice lunch.
Meal will be Chicken entree with vegetables or Sandwhich sampler plate. Cost for the meal is $19 for chicken and $17 for sandwich sampler. Drink, dessert, tax and gratuity are included. We will have a big room reserved for us to sit together.
The nursery and gift shop are lovely and fun to walk through.
After lunch, (3pm or so) we can drive back via 290 to get home.
