Photographing Big Bend National Park!

Today has been great and so was yesterday. Yesterday morning Tony and I got up real early. We went outside to do our morning chores at 7:00, because his sister Annie was coming out at 10:00, so she and Tony could drive around the Hill Country taking pictures.

Around noon, after doing some paperwork, I jumped into Trigger and we took off for Kerrville to run a few errands. My first stop was to go to Wolfmueller Books to visit with Sandy and Jon. Before we adios-ed each other, Sandy showed me this new photography book, Photographing Big Bend National Park: A Friendly Guide to Great Images by Kathy Adams Clark, that she thought Tony would love. So I bought it for Tony.

When Tony and Annie got back home after shooting up the Hill Country, I gave Tony the book and he was thrilled to get it and his sister took a picture of it, so she could buy herself a copy.

This afternoon, I drove Trigger, for practice, so Tony and I could meet our good friends, Kris & Jim and Fourth, for lunch, at El Sol de Mexico. He took his new book with him, so he could read it while being chauffeured. And every time he turned a page he would tell me about how great this book was. "After lunch, let's go to Wolfmueller's Books, so I can thank Sandy for showing you this book."

When we arrived at our favorite Mexican food restaurant I parked across the street under a shade tree. "You'll have to back up when we leave," Tony teased, as we got out of Trigger.

"No, I won't, because it's your turn to drive us home," I said, as I handed the keys to him.

When we walked inside El Sol de Mexico, Kris & Jim aka "The Mineral Man," were sitting in a booth waving to us. A few minutes later Fourth arrived. As always, I ordered their #26 and Tony ordered their #27, from our favorite smiling waiter. 

Our lunch was delicious and it took a while for us to finish it, because we did so much laughing. 

After our fun lunch, Tony drove us to Wolfmueller's Books. Sandy & Jon's bookstore was filled with customers, so after Tony had thanked Sandy, we adios-ed them and Tony drove us back home. And that is about it for tonight, because I plan to do some more writing.

P.S. My friend Wendi that works at Best Friends, in Utah, has sent me this video of Willie Nelson for Texas Pets HB 2981.  Please check it out.

Y'all have a great evening!

WHAT TIME were you at El ol? We ate there today too and never saw y'all!

We each ordered a puffy taco plate - mine was beef; David's was chicken.

SO sorry we missed you all!

Hi Mari! We were met at 1:00. I wish we had seen y'all there, so we could have eaten lunch with y'all. Don't you love that Mexican food restaurant! El Sol de Mexico is the BEST.
