Visiting Seguin, Texas

Postby NefariousNed on Sun Mar 29, 2015 5:57 am

I had originally intended to name this thread, "Cajun Jamboree In Seguin, Texas" but found, upon arriving at the location of the
event that it had been sold out. Nevertheless, I got a few decent photos to share of the town.

The Seguin water tower welcomes you. (For those of you who do not know, the town of Seguin was named after Alamo courier Juan Seguin.)

As mentioned before on the "Everything Seguin" thread, as vandals kept tearing down the Mexican flag from the Seguin burial site, a
twin-star tricolor was put in its place instead.

One thing I found both disappointing and distressing is how the Juan Seguin memorial bricks (emplaced at the burial site back in October,
2014) have still not been cemented in. The sand is washing away, some weeds are creeping in and vandals could very easily just walk
away with a brick, or worse.

This was the location of the Cajun Jamboree at 1865 E. Hwy 90. Really out in the boonies. You proceeded down a very narrow dirt road
with a creek running along the right side and some woods. The police and Sheriffs who were monitoring the gate told me that the event
had been sold out. Guess I should've gotten my ticket online in advance. It was with bitter disappointment that I turned around through
some bushes to get past some other vehicles that were still arriving for the event. No Zydeco music, crayfish shrimp and sausage boil
with corn and potatoes for me. No traditional Cajun dancing and exhibit booths. Nothing. Ended up stopping by this hole-in-the-wall
Mexican restaurant for two puffy tacos. No, I did not take photos of them. Sorry, foodies.

Snapped this photo through the windshield of my car while heading out of town. Goodby, Seguin. Next major visit, the Juan Seguin
family reunion in October. (Lessen some other fascinating event rears its head.)

WOW Ned, more outstanding photos. I don't know why the state of Texas doesn't employ you to promote tourism. Thanks so much for sharing all that you do with us. It is appreciated.
