After leaving the state park we went to the Fort/ mission called Presidio La Bahia, which was just across the bridge from the park. It was built next to the Guadalupe River in 1726 by the Spanish Army and the mission part is still used to this day. This is a nice place to visit plus they have a little movie to help explain what happened to the fort and James Fannin plus his troops.
We were told that the monument for Fannin is back behind the fort a couple blocks. The Statue of the Angle of Goliad and of Genral Ignaico ZaragoZa.
Our daughter-in-law had sent us an invite that if we were in town, Gringos Mexican food restaurant in Pearland was helping raise money for the Pearland swim team. We love eating at Gringos when we are in town plus Our 16-year-old grandson is on that team. Charlotte and I decided to go ahead and drive in and surprise the family. A certain amount of the ticket would go to the team. As we were heading out-of-town we saw a sign telling us where the Fannin Battleground was so of course we stopped by there.
