The only reason why I am here is because my father and I just delivered another windtower base at a nearby windfarm and this is the quickest route to San Antonio...
Freer a small town, the kind of town that most people pass through on their way to a bigger town. The main business highway is littered with gas stations, some open and some not, and hotels for late night travelers ready to call it a night. I took a quick peek at main street and it looked like it has been forgotten about. In fact most of the town looks like it has been long forgotten. Several deplorable buildings barely standing next to buildings still in use, but not necessarily in much better condition. There are a few places to eat including a Dairy Queen that serves Mexican dishes, which is something that I find to be very strange!
Still I find the small town interesting..
On my way to San Antonio via Hwy 16 I spotted, at the edge of town, a tiny church in front of what looked to have been a private residence.. The minnie church has working doors, a pulpit and pews inside and a stain glass window.. It looks to small to be used comfortably by children. At least I can't imagine the purpose of this little building to be for child's play.. Its a Freer mystery!! :P
Not too far outside the town along Hwy 16 North you can see Spring bursting through the drab Winter browns with its bold canary yellows and fresh greens. :)
