Travel Day and Visiting Friends

We were up and away from Fredericksburg by 9:00 with two immediate goals. One the handle on our port-a-pottie broke forcing us to look for a new one - I guess 9 years is a good life.  So first stop was Wal-Mart in try the bigger Wal-Mart in Boerne.  We drove through some very nice TX ranchland passing by Luckenbach .  If you had not visited it is worth a stop but we had been there. On we drove to Boerne and another Wal-Mart  - still no port-a-pottie.  This is TX with ever so many campers!  Next stop was a Bass Pro Shop which was sure to have one - but it is much too near San Antonio for us -- but we found it - in Fiesta - do you know what is in Fiesta TX - Six Flags Over TX - wow everything is there!  We had lunch in the Bass Pro restaurant and then found the Port-A-Pottie. Success on task one.

However before we left the Fredericksburg area we had a second goal - visit Wildseeds - a wildflower seed farm and store.  It was outstanding with fields of bluebonnets, poppies, and ever so many other flowers.  They had everything bluebonnet you could think of to purchase and an entire room of seeds and I bought entirely too many.  Let's hope they grow in TN - they did have wildflower seed packets that would grow in each part of the country.
Nice stop but you could have spent way too much $$$$!

Back to Bass Pro - lunch was great and with our shopping done we headed to Spring Branch and a visit with a couple that Ben had known since college days at North Carolina State.  We arrived in Spring Branch to spend some time with Tom and Mary Ann.  What a nice home they have with more bluebonnets in the yard!  We enjoyed conversation, a great dinner and a quiet night sleeping in our van beside their home.  They had traveled the country in their RV so installed an RV camping spot beside their home for their traveling friends.

Wednesday after a great nights sleep we drove to nearby Canyon Lake to Granny D's for breakfast.  We had been warned to only order one pancake and that was all anyone could eat - thank goodness we listened.  What pancakes they were - we each had one - some Carrot Cake, some Carmel Apple and mine Cinnamon Roll - and although we tried we have half of one pancake left for tomorrow.  I give them a 5 of 5 for pancakes!

Nice visit with Tom and Mary Ann but we were off for more TX adventures.
We are headed towards Lockhart which was a recommended BBQ stop by John and Dale.  Another beautiful blue day with temperature about 70 - what could be perfect.
