I drove South of the Nacogdoches Loop 224 on US Hwy 59 (soon to be the stupid Interstate Hwy 69) about twenty miles to Lufkin; and took the East Loop, then South on hwy 59 about ten miles to Diboll, Texas. (Please drive the speed limits in East Texas cuz they like enforcement.)

I saw the nice First Methodist Church on a side road and took a look-see. The church congregation started elsewhere in Diboll in 1897. The church was deeded this property in 1922 and started building the Church, Sanctuary, and Fellowship Hall in stages later.

After seeing the outside of the church, I asked the nice people in the Fellowship Hall, and the granted me permission to shoot inside the church. The chapel was very nice and had very nice stained glass windows.

Outside, I simply had to make some noise with their large brass bell. (I need a large brass bell in front of my house!)

On the short drive back to the highway I made a pit stop at a house with nice bluebonnets.

Before leaving Diboll I stopped for a very good munch at Los Jarritos Mexican Restaurant.

On the Northern outskirts of town I made my last stop at the Diboll Trading Post for some shopping.

A very nice day for me.
