LBJ, Luckenbach, and Museums
Mar 30, 2012
|What a busy day!
We left the resort at 8:00 this morning, riding with Bob & Janet, and headed toward Fredericksburg, then on east to the LBJ Ranch.
We spent several hours touring the LBJ Ranch. At the Visitor’s Center they loan you a CD to put in your vehicle’s CD player, and it guides you around on a driving tour, explaining the importance of the buildings or other things along the way.
When you reach the airplane hangar, you may go into a small building and purchase a ticket to tour the Ranch House, which was the home of President LBJ and Lady Bird Johnson. The cost of that tour is $2.00 per person.
We enjoyed the tour very much. Unfortunately Marilyn’s camera battery went dead before we even began, so we borrowed the chip from Janet’s camera and down loaded more than 500 pictures. It may take me awhile to sort through them to select a few to share with you loyal readers.
We left the ranch and drove back toward Fredericksburg. This time we turned off to visit the town of Luckenbach, Texas.
Marilyn & I had been there several times but Bob & Janet had not.
We parked and walked around the few buildings, wandering in and out of the quaint, aged structures.
Being hungry by this time, we bought pulled pork sandwiches and a cold drink, then sat outdoors under the live oak trees which provided shade from the hot sun.
It was a few minutes after 12 noon by the time we left Luckenback in our rear view mirror.
Bob drove to the Visitor’s Center in Fredericksburg and parked the truck in that parking lot.
At this point the ladies, Janet and Marilyn, had big smiles on their faces because they were going shopping while Bob and I visited the museums.
For the next four hours Bob & I went through the very interesting museums of WWII in the Pacific.
By the time we met our Precious, Special, wives back at the truck we were ready to head home.
Reaching Kerrville we were all hungry again so we decided to stop at a Mexican restaurant called “Mamacitas”.
The food was delicious, especially the guacamole, with its garlic flavor. Yummy!
It has been another awesome day. Now to get this posted and maybe find a few pictures for you.
Life is Good!
