A Day on the Road

 It is so nice to get out of the house and just enjoy the places around you. I am so lucky to have a son and daughter-in-law who are so willing to share their time. Friday, I got a call from my son telling me to get Harley and me ready to go because he and Angus were on the way over to pick us up. We headed north and west to take a ride along River Road out of New Braunfels. Sorry, no pictures but it is a great you are in a different part of the country. We turned around and drove back the same way we came to enjoy it all over again. It can get pretty crazy on a summer weekend but was fairly quiet Friday morning. Then we stopped in at the Gruene Coffee House before heading home.

Saturday, Steve and Helen just showed up at the house with Angus. We headed out towards Bandera. Driving through town, we saw an interesting sight. Bandera usually has something western going on Saturdays and these nuns were out to enjoy themselves. Can you see the one riding side-saddle on the longhorn?

Next we moved on down the road towards Medina. Unfortunately we didn't stop at the Apple Store for some strudel or turnovers as we had stopped in Bandera at the Cracked Mug Coffee House. It's a friendly place with lots of different coffee choices as well as breakfast and lunch menus.

Back on the road again, we headed down one of the Three Twisted Sisters roads to Leakey. If you ride motorcycles, you probably know about these three Texas roads with over 200 hills and curves. Fun on a bike but also fun to drive but probably not for the faint of heart. We ended up at the Bent Rim Grill in Leakey. They have a large outdoor but covered seating area where Harley and Angus were just as welcome as we were. Lots of room to practice social distancing and try some great burgers.

They even have interesting d├ęcor in the bathrooms. This is definitely motorcycle country.

Just in case you ever want to give the roads a try...….

On the way back, we saw some tubers relaxing in the river. Looked so nice and cool.

And the weekend wasn't over. Sunday Steve showed up on his Grom and Helen wasn't far behind in the car. Fortunately, Harley and I were up (barely) but Dave was still in bed. After he had a quick breakfast, he and Steve headed out on the motorcycles on the back roads. We all met up in Gruene for coffee at the Gruene Coffee Haus and a quick tour of the Market Days.

All in all, a great family weekend out of the house!
