The Painted Churches - A Texas Road Trip

Throughout this year, we have been exploring the little small towns close by Houston.
We found some lovely sites to visit , on one of those explorations we happened to stumble by a sign pointing to a Painted Church. Painted Church? Curiously we follow the sign , the beautiful country scenery with narrow roads didn't disappoint. The drive was short, but from the road we were able to see the point steeple picking from behind the trees. I was excited !
The lovely red brick church reward our curiosity, was worth our side trip, full of history and  masterly ornate, it was a site to behold, I felt like I found a treasure.
 But this  wasn't  the end, we discovered that there are seven more churches similar to Nativity of Mary (2833 FM 2672
Schulenburg, Texas 78956-5603) .
The lovely little churches are located around the country side , fairly close to each other.
It was a year later that we were finally able to make a day trip to visit the other churches.
Its was a super enjoyable time  and I would recommend to anyone. Left me wanting to repeat the trip...maybe at Spring time.
 My pictures couldn't make justice to those  historical  churches.
