We left our Texas state park and headed for Louisiana today. I discovered an amenity that I needed to report - near the bath house was a bicycle/mud washing station. There are a lot of walking and bike trails in the park which can get pretty muddy when it rains. I think this is a nice touch.
Flag etiquette: I saw a display of 3 flags on 3 flagpoles this morning. The Texas flag was in the middle. I thought that it was proper etiquette to fly the US flag in the middle. I did some research and found that Texas has a law on American flag etiquette.
The Texas Flag Code--which is part of the Texas Government Code, not the
Texas Penal Code--guides the proper handling and display of the
American flag. It says the U.S. flag should be raised first and lowered
last in any situation involving other flags. It also spells out the
display of the American flag on a pole that is located to the left of
the Texas flag, from the viewer's perspective. According to the 2001
additions to the code, the poles must be the same height, and the flags
must be about the same size.
