Brazos Bend, Part Two

Looking for alligators wasn't the only activity we enjoyed at Brazos Bend State Park recently. Seth was excited to find a vending machine, and it had nothing to do with getting a drink. It had everything to do with the fact that when you drop a quarter into a vending machine, then press the coin return button, you get a different quarter. For a coin collector like Seth, who is trying to acquire every type of quarter ever made, this means that vending machines are not drink dispensers. They are potential treasure chests. While relentlessly pursuing a quarter he didn't have yet, he attracted an amused crowd of onlookers.

Looks like he provided y'all with quite a bit of entertainment! :) Is that his Nevada quarter he's holding there?

It sure is! The 2006 Nevada quarter is now a proud member of the collection.
