Did we make some wrong turns....

Hondo, TX

Since today looked to be mild and dry we set out for another ride.  We took Rt 173 out of Hondo north thinking we would end up to Kerrville.

We were delighted to see flowering trees

 and some interesting landscaping

In the town of Bandera we were so absorbed looking at the sights such as this stately building

that we missed staying on Route 173 and got on scenic Rt 16 instead.

Rt 16 was quite scenic in areas.  Up, down and around.

I must have given Leonard some wrong directions because before I knew we were in North Dakota.

Seeing my mistake I shouted at Leonard   TURN EAST.   I think we drove too far east as we found ourselves near London at Stonehenge.

On dear,  knowing this is not where we wanted to end up I told him to head south.  Again, we must have missed our turn as we found ourselves in the Serengeti of Africa.

Zebras and Wildebeest aplenty

Heading north in Africa we found some Aoudad-Barbary Sheep

Knowing we should to get back to the campground before dark, we headed west once more.

Another bad turn found us on Easter Island.

We did finally make it back to the town of Ingram near Kerrville and stopped to check out their outdoor "Point Theater".   The welcoming committee met us as soon as we got out of the truck.  She also followed us into the gift shop where she is known for getting into their yarn display.

After stopping for a meal at the local Chilies we managed to get back to the campground well before dark.

I always thought I had a good sense of direction.  This day tells me I might need a refresher course or a better  GPS.


  1. wow so many countries in such a short time....Len must really drive fast.!
    Hey you made it back, had a nice drive and great scenery what more could you want

  2. Wow, lots of things to see in your part of the country!

  3. Now that was the best wrong turn I have ever seen. Where are the Blue Bonnets?

  4. Good thing you were out for a drive. If you were pulling your RV, the mood would be different. The Texas Hill Country certainly has a lot to see.

  5. What an entertaining post! Loved it! Thanks for taking us along on your world tour!

  6. You sure covered some territory on that short drive, what an adventure.
