Texas does everything big, including statues of squirrels and pecans.
Texas is home to an abundance of pecan groves, which, in turn, brings an abundance of squirrels. Why not erect a statue or three to them?
I can’t think of a reason why not.
This brings me to the next stop on our journey: The Giant Squirrel in Sinton, Texas.
Agnes, the Giant Squirrel, is seen sitting in downtown Sinton, munching on a pecan. Some photos show Agnes wearing a “straw” hat adorned with a long-stemmed flower. Although it was past Christmas, and well into the next year at the time I visited, Agnes was wearing a Santa hat. Perhaps Agnes is like those folks who prefer to leave the Christmas lights up long after the holiday, if only to keep the festive spirit going a bit longer.
Drop in on Agnes, the giant squirrel, anytime and you may get to see her in one of her other hats. She’s munching on her pecan in front of Aunt Aggie De’s Pralines at 311 W. Sinton Street in downtown Sinton. You may get to see her in one of her other hats.
Join me on the next adventure as I visit three giant pecan sculptures in Seguin, Texas, one of which is the world’s largest.
