The weather isn't cooperating with us, its been very windy and cloudy with a storm knocking on our door. Yesterday we had lunch at the Old German Bakery, downtown (with a million other people). It was delicious and worth the wait (I think).

Dave had sauerbraten and red cabbage.....I had the hugest (is that even a word?) German pancake anyone has ever seen, ever. burp.
Afterward we drove over to checkout nearby Lady Bird Johnson Park. Fellow bloggers have stayed at the RV park associated with it, but we don't fancy side by side sites, hermits that we are. The park is a wonderful place...nature trails, golf course, fishing in a beautiful and clear creek, lovely picnic shelters and flowers everywhere. The high point, as far as Dave was concerned, was that it is directly across from the airport and one can sit and watch it's comings and goings.

Lancair Evolution turbo prop took the prize.
Including three or four beautiful scissor-tailed flycatchers (also known as the Texas bird of paradise!) plying their trade on the fence directly in front of us. I could have taken a really good picture of them, they were that close, but my camera has official given up the ghost. The dreaded "Lens Error". I've tried every tip the internet has to give, short of taking it apart. The IPhone does a fine job, but not for closeups so, after some thought, we headed to Walmart for a new purchase.
After the heavy rain, hail and wind forecast for the next couple days passes by we'll get out and about. I'll show you more pictures of this lovely and very green little town. Apparently there is a wine trail we must follow and a wildflower loop to be driven. Finger's crossed the storm moves through quickly.
