The place where Texas meets Louisiana.
The part of Texas that I said I would never return to after my Master's research.
Since I had time to kill before the work began I chose to do a good deed.
There was a mobile blood bank at the . . . wait for it . . .
I stayed at a great hotel where the rooms where comfortable and the black-out curtains were very nice!
However, it looked like this after I left - 11 days later!
I got up every morning at 0330 and headed to the building below -
Then I balanced my way across one of the beams on this "dock" carrying a computer bag, camera, and the rest of my gear - wearing my fancy new boots.
When the sun finally came up, I tried to put a smile on my face - ok a smirk - and focus on the work.

After working from 0330 - 1630 everyday, I came back to the hotel room to curl up and sleep - but after a long week in the field - I decided for some retail therapy!
I'll give ya a hint -
I LOVE antique stores!
Go team go - boots!
