We made it home safely this afternoon. It was an uneventful drive even though we took I35. We haven’t even restarted the papers or mail since we will be heading East for Thanksgiving later this week – no trailer this time, though!
I am not exaggerating in the slightest! City Market in Luling has the best BBQ. We had sausage, ribs and brisket. It wasnt fancy. No plates – just butcher paper and napkins.
We got extra for dinner tomorrow so we didn’t eat everthing in this picture. It hasn’t been a great day, but City Market did not let me down. I was worried that it wouldn’t be as good as I remembered.
Hi Janice! How could you ever move away from here?!? We drove an hour just to enjoy this fabulous meat.
We planned to hike on the other side of the Pedernales River today but we couldn’t get across. It was pouring rain when we arrived on Sunday and there must still be a lot of runoff.
We turned around at the River and headed back to the trailer and took the truck to the Wolf Mountain Trailhead. It turned out to be a great hike. We found four different geocaches today. One was right next to a natural spring called Johnson Spring. It was really a lovely spot.
One of the geocaches had a travelling coin in it but we didn’t know where it was supposed to be heading so we left it in the cache.
We ended up hiking about nine miles today. I am pretty sore but it was worth it. I am committed to getting up tomorrow and doing some yoga. I’ve been carrying my mat around for a week without using it!
Tomorrow we are going to head down to the river again and see the Pedernales Falls. On Friday, we will drive to Austin until Monday. Alan is going to hang out with other guys who like restoring old woodworking machines on Saturday. I will spend the day at the trailer making cards!
We headed out this week on our annual Fall trip to the Texas Hill Country/Kerrville Furniture Show. For the last three years we have taken a trip South to visit the Kerrville Arts Center where they show wonderful pieces crafted by Texas furniture makers. It is mostly wood. This year we are a bit later than normal and the winners were already selected. That made the Furniture Show even a little more interesting.
Usually, we stay in Kerrville but this year we are staying at Pedernales State Park. Alan brought the trailer down by himself on Sunday. I was already in Johnson City. I had spent the weekend with friends stamping at a small retreat house called Perfectly Crafty Retreats. We had a lovely time and I even managed to make more than a dozen cards! Mostly I ate too much. The food and friends were wonderful.
This morning we checked out the Pedernales Falls at the far north end of the park. It was really beautiful. I will post some pictures once we get to Austin.
I should have posted this first! We have absolutely no cell service in this Park. You have to head to the Ranger Station or hike five miles out on Wolf Trail to get anything other than “no service”.
We are checking in every day but if you leave a voicemail we may not get it until late the next day. No need to worry if you don’t get us right away.
Pedernales State Park has been great. It is definitely one of the cleanest parks we have visited. The spots are a bit oddly configured with the door of the trailers facing the road with the tables and fire rings in the back.
Alan selected a site on the outside ring with a nice layout. We have already seen a deer and tracks from what must be a giant raccoon. At least it stayed out of our garbage.
