Arrived about 10am, spent a few hours, then had lunch at Tres Amigos Restaurant. Wonderful food and some of the best chips and salsa we have had. Then we went back stayed until around 2pm and went home. We had a great time.
We had to take a trip to Beeville to have our fingerprints done. This was to complete our security license requirements. We ate lunch at Elder’s Country Store and Market. It has been there since the 60’s and we had a very good and affordable lunch special of chicken fried steak, potatoes, and green beans. On the way home we stopped at a park on the side of highway. Lots of huge oak trees and wildflowers.
We were off today and the weather was great so we headed out to Fort Davis to do a short hike. Madera Canyon Trail is part of the Nature Conservancy’s Davis Mountain Preserve. When we arrived it was clear skies and 68 degrees.
We had to go to Alpine yesterday for several things. Dr. appt for Laura to get her meds refilled, and I had to pick up my meds also. I had a little job to do (real estate). Picked up a few items at Blue water health store. Went grocery shopping, got some great looking T-bones, and had lunch at El Patio. Truck needed gas…it had gone up some-$2.13. Arrived at 10:30 and left at 3:30. Pretty much spent most of the day in Alpine.
Got our first ripe tomato and squash from the garden. Had to change some plants out to containers because of the ground squirrels digging them up.
We have had several peach deserts now, glad we went out and picked some because that tree is about done with the birds and animals eating a lot of them. The peaches are so good!!
This was our day off so my way to relax is to take pictures. First stop, Gage Gardens. This is such a great place to walk around, sit and enjoy the plants and manicured grounds. The flowers were starting to bloom so they soon became my favorite item to shoot.
They had some Trumpet vine along a fence and the following shot had a bonus to it.
Next was a place on Hwy. 385, called Prairie Dog Town.
Good day to relax. Now it’s time to fire up the grill. German Sausage and Pork Loin coming up for dinner. Mmmm…good.
