Apr 11, 2018 - Shiner Texas

April 11 Shiner TX Mike had read a lot about Shiner Bock beer somewhere so we went to Shiner where it was brewed for a factory tour. Shiner is a pretty town and the people are extremely proud of the brewery. The Spoetzl Brewery has made their beer one batch at a time since 1909. Great tour. In town is the Saints Cyril and Methodius Church. It was built in 1921 in the Romanesque Revival style of architecture. The building was put up all by volunteers. It is amazing. Then inside are hand painted murals, and statues. Glass windows with...

Mar 24, 2011 - San Antonio and Shiner TX

San Antonio and Shiner TX We enjoyed the last days in Kerrville, the weather was really nice, sunny and high 70’s---great motorcycle weather. I finally found some information about all the wildlife in the area. We would be riding along and see animals that we had never seen before. Found out that many of them were introduced to Texas during the 1930-1950’s. Many came from Africa, India, Europe, China, and some are extinct in their country of origin. The game ranches manage vast herds of 45 species. Somehow a “Big Game” hunt on a 100 acre...

Mar 11, 2011 - Painted Churches, Shiner

We chose Schulenburg as our home base for a few days because there are several things to see in this general area.... Schulenburg, TX, the town we are camping in, is known as the "home of the painted churches". A group of historic churches in communities near the town of Schulenburg are known as the Painted Churches of Texas. (I put the community name on the pictures) The churches, built by the Czech immigrants, have elaborately painted interiors and details such as faux marble columns. They were similar to painted churches we saw last...

Aug 7, 2009 - Day Seven - Shiner, Texas

Saying goodbye to Freddie and Karen was difficult, as it always is. I only get to see them once or twice a year, which just isn’t often enough. One would be hard-pressed to find two nicer folks on the planet. But it was time to move on to visit with Al Staehely in Houston, the man who had voluntarily planned a big chunk of my road trip itinerary over the last few days (which is a good thing since I certainly didn’t have any specific plans beyond the Bob Dylan/Willie Nelson concert in Round Rock, and the upcoming Mulberry Mountain Harvest...

Nov 8, 2008 - Wildlife, Leather Goods, Texas Beer & Painted Churches

From Lake Texana State Park – Edna, TX High blue skies with no clouds during the day and clear cool starry nights have been for the most part the weather enjoyed here at the park. One can truly see fall in the air as you sit under the awning and watch the leaves flutter in the breeze while falling to the ground. The smell of campfires throughout the park also adds to this feel of autumn in the air. During the silence of the park on weekdays when just a few of its sites are occupied, the wildlife seems to come alive. You hear the squirrels...
