Wedding was great. Was a long drive out & back to Dayton (1.5 hours) but well worth it. The only downside was driving back late last night at 1000 (or was it 1100?). The wedding was actually held on a ranch/hunting lodge out in East Texas along the Trinity River. The trip out was an adventure. You started out heading northeast out of Houston and up into the back woods of east Texas. Once we hit the town of Dayton, we turned north and drove out about 12 miles on a winding country back road. THEN we turned off onto a one lane blacktop road for another 6 miles until we hit the ranch gate. Crossed the cattle guard onto the dirt/sandy road and drove in 2 miles along the riverbank and through the cattle until we reached the lodge. At this point, one might question where the hell we were going (I kept humming the theme to Deliverance) but there were signs and eventually we pulled up to the lodge with a huge tent and all sorts of decorations. Pretty strange site to see out in deep woods of East Texas.
