Even though there were possibilities of rain due to the Hurricane Hannah approaching the Texas Coast, several club members met up in Boerne to caravan though the hill country. There were 6 Benz's, and 10 friends who made the drive. We met a couple of  new people in our club - and that's always nice. In these trying times, it is hard to socialize as much as we would like to get to know each other. But eventually things will normalize again and when it is safe for us all to gather we will certainly do that again!

Our drive started out on Hwy 46 to the west. We drove through some scenic hills, and found our way to Bandera, Texas. We drove through town and on to Camp Verde which is outside of Kerriville. We stopped at the Camp Verde General Store. The General Store has been in that area for 150 years. In ther store, there are many items gathered from artisans and producers around the world. There are several areas in the store with many different gift items to give or to take home. There is also a restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. From French Toast, a variety of omelets, eggs your way, to breakfast tacos. Lunch offers salads, deli sandwiches and burgers. Want more than and sandwich - try the meatloaf, or chicken fingers... those who wanted, had lunch here. After lunch, we continued on our drive through the winding roads.

On to Comfort for a stop at Love's Station and Store for a pit stop and to browse the store.

From there to Hwy 473 and to Kendalia and Sisterdale and on to Hwy 281. We ended up at the Spring Creek Gardens and check out their gift shop and greenhouses. After that, we were ready to head back home. It was a good day to get out of the house and drive in a Mercedes-Benz. We did have some rain off and on during the drive, but who cares? We need the rain and we'll take all we can get right now.
