Today we rode 60 miles in sunny and cloud-free skies. We definitely had some hills, especially in Bastrop State Park at the start of the ride. And we really didn’t have much traffic, until the very last road we were on, which was TX 159, which lead us into Round Top. I didn’t see anything worthy of a video, but I did take lots of photos today. Here they are:
3 years ago there was a forest fire that burned all of the pine tress in Bastrop State Park – it will probably take decades for it to return to what it was before the fire.
Planning the route for today’s ride to Round Top – Tim is always willing the share what he has figured out for us for the day.
These riders from the Tour de Tejas, all preachers or ministers headquartered in the Houston area, prayed for our safety on our ride in a short but moving prayer and we all appreciated it. Sorry for my thumb getting in the way of the shutter. 🙁
What do you think, Nancy? Should I bring back a mailbox like this for our house in Media?
La Grange, TX has a Sonic – it was a real godsend to us today since it was so hot and we were low on fluids – we all had a large Coke and a burger and they were both really really good!
Who’d a thunk old gasoline signs and antiques would mix so well? 🙂
Now we know where old gas station signs go once their stations die out – along TX 159 near Round Top. Learn something every day! 🙂
Tim and Mark at the Round Top Inn B&B – I was expecting Tim to stand on the top step so he’d look taller….
Today’s ride was 60 miles and tomorrow is our last ride of Leg 4, and is about 50 miles or so to Navasota, TX.
Toilet seat in Men’s room – that’s right the MEN’S ROOM – in Los Patrones Restaurant, Round Top, TX
We all ordered something different at this Mexican Restaurant in Round Top – I had beef enchiladas and they were excellent!
We were able to see the last of the sunset walking back to our B&B after dinner.
The Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Round Top – this may be the one area of Texas where another protestant denomination, namely the Lutherans, give the Baptists a run for their money….
