Blue People, Red State - Winter 2010 travel blog











We're camped near Burnet (pronounced burn-it) to attend the Bluebonnet Festival there this weekend. Part of the festival involves a two day golf tournament at a local course. That's why we played the course today. It was in the best condition of any course we've played this winter, perhaps in readiness for the big tournament. But it was somewhat disconcerting to see the signs warning us to beware of rattlesnakes. Usually when you make a lot of noise, wildlife do their best to get out of your way, so when Ken hit a wild ball into the tall grass I went to get it since I had seen exactly where it landed, stomping my feet as I went. A course official in a cart rushed over and shooed me away. Snakes have been seen in the last few days on the course. All-righty then. If the ball isn't on the fairway, it will just have to stay where it is. No wonder the check in lady was surprised that we wanted to walk the course rather than taking a cart.

It is easily observable how we spent the rest of the day - another flower quest. Nuff said...
