This morning, we drove to Kerrville, Texas, for our pre-arranged 10K Volksmarch with Evelyn and Kevin. Evelyn made a good brunch casserole with eggs, potatoes, chicken and cheese and served it with cantaloupe and orange juice. We brought some grapes and had those as well.
Nicely fortified, we set off on the Kerrville "Bridges" Volksmarch. It's interesting that they named the walk that, but I'll explain further down in the blog. The start point was close to their RV park, we only had to drive a mile or two to get there.
We started at Elm Creek Park. We chose to do the 0.83 mi. loop around the perimeter of the park at the beginning of our walk. (We could have chosen to do it at the end of the walk instead.)

The temperature today reached 87 degrees and there was very little shade. On a slight hill, we had a refreshing breeze.
Here are more pics from the walk today. Only one wildlife sighting.

The menu had excellent options, some I hadn't seen on a Mexican restaurant menu before. I had Pescado del Mar which was filet of red snapper with a lime/honey butter sauce, la charra beans, rice, Caesar salad, and tortillas. It was very good. No photos of food this time.

Then it was time for us to head back to San Antonio. Kevin and Evelyn are heading up to Blanco, TX in the morning.
Once again we had a good time walking and talking and eating. That reminds me, I used to have a Volksmarch shirt that said, "Walk, walk, talk; walk, walk, eat." I don't know where it is. It's brand new and I haven't seen it since we've been on the road. Maybe it's in a box in Mom's attic!
Have safe travels Evelyn and Kevin. We look forward to the next time we see you. I hope Wisconsin is warm and dry by the time you return!
