Almost at the end of the second island we left the gulf coast and took a dirt road to the other side of the island where we found a very good place to camp. Since the surface was very muddy and we were surrounded by water, there were a lot of mosquitos. But on the other hand we found a lot of oysters and I was able to catch a delicious fish. We stayed there 2 nights enjoying the exquisite food that the ocean provided us and working on our music.
The next morning we got back to the mainland and crossed the industrial town of Freeport. Freeport was founded by a european settlement on November 1912 by the Freeport sulphur company. It’s population was 300. By 1929 the population had grown to 3,500 to 4,100 by 1939. The increase of population influenced a steady increase of the economic expansion in Freeport. Freeport has the company’s largest single manufacturing site in the 21st century. It’s population now a days is 12,708.
Afterwards we headed inland towards the town of Brazoria. We road by Justin Hurst wildlife management area. It was a very nice and quiet road. We were both very happy to see trees and be out of the mosquito territory after being there for so long in the marsh. Before getting to Brazoria we found a great place to camp by a pond surrounded my magical and mystical energy.
The next day we headed southwest on 521 a beautiful road where we just saw vast farm land for many miles. All this area had a mystic dreamlike feel to it. It was heavy riding day. When we were both getting tired we got to a small and chill RV park where they let us spend the night.
After getting some rest at the RV park we had a later start around noon. For the first time in the tour the wind was blowing really strong against us. We road by Texas south project witch was a facility next to a big body of water and a vast part of land. It had a big fence all around it. It was a nuclear energy facility. It looked really suspicious. We were both wondering if it is only energy that’s being produced there.
Since the wind was so strong and it wasn’t letting us ride too fast, we both decided to find a place to camp as soon as we could. After crossing a bridge we pulled over in Carl state park. We really liked the location next to the river surrounded by wildlife, beaches and picnic tables. We set up camp and we went fishing and karma got us two big fish which we cooked for dinner with ginger, dry red peppers, garlic, onions and a side of potatoes and broccoli. It was delicious. Since we really like this place we spent one more night which gave us some time to start working on our new song “Something’s Gone¨ which talks about how when we let something go it opens up a new space to let our spirit move freely to a higher conscious level.
The next day we had a short ride since it was suppose to rain that afternoon and we got to a motel in the town of Palacios, where we got some rest.
