Goliad, Salado and Thanksgiving 

So this trip started out interesting, while loading my truck this morning I locked the door to my kitchen and had to bust the door jam to get back inside.  I’m not looking forward to repairing the door frame.  After that though, the trip was very smooth and the traffic was light.

My first stop was Goliad State Park for  a geocache and to visit the mission I first saw 30 years ago as a middle schooler.  It is much smaller than I remember.  The mission itself was restored in 1935 by the CCC after laying in ruins since the 1800’s.

I then headed over to Round Rock to have lunch with one of my online gaming friends at Kerbey Lane Café.  The coffee was very good and the specialty yam pancakes were as good a the homemade sausage.

I then set off for Salado and my first Bed and Breakfast experience.  The funny thing here is I’m the only person staying here. So I have know one with whom to play cards and I don’t have to negotiate with anyone on what TV show we should watch.

It is now dinner time, sort of, so I setout to find something to eat.  The place suggested by my sister is closed on Monday and Tuesday, so I had to find plan B.  In the process I found this newly opened craft brewery / winery bar.  They don’t serve food, but do allow you to bring it in from the outside.  I chose to head to one of the few places open for dinner and had some BBQ.  Once my hunger was sated I went to quench my thirst at that bar I mentioned.  There were 50+ Texas draft beers on tap and I enjoyed 2 flights of 4 varieties.  All I would drink again.

Flight Check

I am back at the B&B, writing up these notes and watching the movie 2012 on SyFy.  Breakfast is at 9 AM and after there are a few sites here in Salado I want to see before heading out to a park and do some more geocaching.
