“From a Watery Grave” a Shower of Fun

Posted at April 22, 2013 by Comments Off on “From a Watery Grave” a Shower of Fun

Despite the ominous title, “From a Watery Grave,” the tales of La Salle’s La Belle proved to be great fun. Co-author James Bruseth provided a fascinating presentation of La Salle’s journey to the new world in 1686 aboard the La Belle. He missed his intended target, the mouth of the Mississippi River, by a fair piece and ended up in Texas. While he went looking for the river, his crew ended up wrecking the La Belle in  Matagorda Bay. Three hundred and ten years later, James Bruseth found the ship. That story and more kept the guests at Martha and Richard Coons’ house riveted and full of questions. A French themed dinner followed the Q&A. An exhibit at the Bullock Museum (in 2014) will be an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the story–but not the superlative dinner.
