Photos, September 9th and 10th, 2010

This is the Waring General Store. The title is misleading because it is a beer joint/short order restaurant. It's a great place to eat burgers, and a good deal on Wednesdays with their $20.00 special steak night deal including a band.
Here are Stella, Susan and I in the back yard of the general store. There are tables outside too, so I assume that you can hear the band outside. We are sorry we were early and would have stayed for the band performance except we had to get back for our dogs.

This is one of the RV sites at Huaco (pronounced Waco) Springs RV park. These are very nice sites overlooking the Guadalupe river and would a good place to go for a few days.

Looking down the river just below the RV site pictured above. As you can see, it is a beautiful site.

One of the falls at the park. I don't remember these falls from our other visits to this area, so they may be man-made.

The other fall at the park. Perhaps my kids can remember these falls and will remind me. We made many trips to New Braunfels to visit my Dad and came down to River Road every time.

Looking upriver from near the falls. The trees are large and beautiful along the river and we always loved driving down the road.
All these pictures were taken with my I Phone camera which is probably the last pics that you will see from this camera. I'm certain that you will be able to tell the difference.
So long.

Daddy, we stopped at Huaco Springs both weekends last summer when we were floating the river. You wouldn't want to stay there during the summer as it's a serious party campground. Not that I would know anything about that, I've just heard that and all :) But in the fall and winter, it's probably nice enough. But yeah, we came across many more "falls" this summer since the water was flowing so much better and it was great!

why are these the last i phone photos?
It's been yeeears since I've been there. I can only recall one long drive down River Road with you and all I remember is the whining about "are we there yet?" and "WHERE are we going??" Maybe or maybe not spoken by me. =)
