Boerne Cemetery Walk - Mon., July 13, 2015

Playing catch up...we did this walk on Monday, July 13.

This morning, Susan and I met at the Boerne, Texas Comfort Inn for the 10k Boerne Cemetery Volksmarch. Warm weather, humidity, and a long walk (6.2 miles) awaited us. We walked through a lot of neighborhoods on the way to the cemetery.

After walking through neighborhoods, we passed through the cemetery. Boerne was settled by Germans, so you see many German names on the headstones.

Many types of memorials

We continued onto the main street of Boerne and walked through part of town. This area is called "Hill Country Main Street Mile." Lots of cute shops and restaurants reside in an old, updated downtown.

We then turned off Main Street and headed along Cibolo Creek on the Cibolo Trail. High water flowed through here with the Memorial Day weekend floods, but nothing like Wimberley. Some trees had been flattened, but they were the exception rather than the rule.

We found the Loch Ness Monster!!

As we finished our walk, we started thinking about food. We remembered there was a Mexican restaurant, Centinela, close to the finish and gave it a try for breakfast. Both of us ordered pancakes, fried eggs and bacon. The food and service were excellent and the price couldn't be beat. Our comibined total was less than $10.

The day was young, so we went to the Boerne Starplex Theatre to see "Max," about a war dog and so much more. We both LOVED the movie.

Travel Bug out.
