Day 4 - Going Home
The Colony Travel Blog› entry 4 of 4 › view all entries
Today is HOT - high today was 100 degrees Fahrenheit (so we were thankful that it was cooler). We had a few showers along our drive home (just for a few minutes here and there)
We woke up at about 7:30 and ate breakfast. Gary prepared eggs and sliced potatoes (salt and peppered). I drank a Starbuck’s Mocha Frappuccino (bottled).
Once we finished cleaning our dishes and getting dressed, we loaded up the truck for our drive home. Before leaving the park, we stopped off at the river; and went swimming again.
We grilled some bratwurst for lunch as we looked at the river.
Then, we took the scenic route from Comfort to Luckenbach and Marble Falls to Ink Lake, and then home. The hill country of Texas is beautiful! We saw more deer. Gary almost hit a deer family as we driving along, but everyone ended up safely travelling along. We also saw cattle, sheep, an emu, and antelope on various ranches. All of the ranches had fancy, personalized gates to draw attention - set themselves apart from everyone else. In Comfort, we saw the Hermann and Antoine Ingenhuett Homestead. We picked up some Opa’s sausages and bacon and tasted/bought wine at Grapecreek Vineyards in Fredericksburg. We drove through Lyndon Baines Johnson National Park in Johnson City, TX - where we saw an entire herd of deer running across a meadow into the woods. Marbles Falls surprised us with the most beautiful Texan overlook as we came up over the granite mountain.
We picked up dinner at McDonald’s. I had chicken nuggets with honey, and Gary had a quarter pounder with cheese, no pickles or ketchup.
We slept comfortably, once we got home. Sara slept the entire next day as she slept very little during our vacation - too many exciting things to see and sniff.
