2012.03.24 San Antonio & New Braunfels

On Saturday, our last day in the San Antonio area, we drove to New Braunfels, a northern suburb. We first picked up our friend, Denise, at Hill Country RV and then we all met our friends Bill and Sharon who have now sold their Allegro Bus after 10 years on the road and they have settled in New Braunfels. At Denise's campground we saw this unusual set-up of a modified American Coach motorhome with a smart car and a 5th wheel. Quite interesting but not our cup of tea. ;-)

Above, you have Sharon and Denise talking in front of the Huisache Grill. Notice the Huisache tree in full bloom. It is a tree that grows wild all over south Texas and they and the Live Oaks are in full bloom and pollen so we are both suffering from severe allergies. It has been a mild winter even in south Texas and so the pollen is out early this year. Usually we miss this batch of pollen because we are already north but not this year. ;-(

The Huisache Grill sits in an old building right in the town of New Braunfels and it is surrounded by huge old Live Oak trees. There are several artist studios and shops along the "Toe Path" from the parking into the restaurant. The gardens were beautiful with flowers blooming and sculptures.

I never seen a live armadillo even though everyone tells us they are everywhere so I had to take a picture of this statue. Below, you have Doug and Bill discussing "guy stuff" while we three ladies explore the shops.
