The road was singing its siren call and we had to go. Eagle took us north to Boerne. On the way we passed one of those tall fence ranches (Hill Country Flight blog). This one raised horses, hay and….camels? Yup!
Through Boerne we went on CR 1376.
At the entrance to Old Tunnel State Park is Alamo Springs Café. It has more seating outside than in and a boatload of patrons. You go in, grab a drink out of the cooler and find a place to sit. The burgers were two-fisted, the onion rings tasty.
On the road again
to our second stop.
The village center sits at the junction of two roads making a backward L.
The sign says Post Office, but this building is the original general store and is now a souvenir shop with a bar at the back.
Reference to the three friends who bought the town.
The rest of the town is a collection of old buildings and lean-to's which host the droves of people and musicians who gather here.
Further north 1376 connected to US 290, and
as far north as we went.
We saw this place and rolled in for a look-see. It is the site of the new Texas Ranger Heritage Center at Fort Martin Scott. Phase 1 was open but Phase 2 was not. We decided to return to visit when the whole place was done.
We cruised around Fredericksburg trying to capture the German influence on Hauptstrauss (German for Main St.).
These two businesses caught my eye.
A u-turn in Fredericksburg took us south, retracing our previous route. At Boerne we detoured to the Harley Store for a look-around,
then took our Eagle back home.
Only a few days left for our visit at Medina Lake TT.
