It's a long drive to Leakey (pronounced LAY-key), Texas. At 11:30 a.m., we pulled into Bent Rim Grill, the only restaurant Susan's Garmin found in town (even though there were a Subway and other eating establishments). I'm glad we went. The grill is in the same building as the Harley Davidson store. The place was packed with a line out the door. Fridays they have a catfish fish fry on the menu and it is obviously popular with the local population of 425 people!

|Motorcycle decor...I sense a theme here. LOL.|

a clock made from license plate numbers, etc.
|Our start point at Big Springs Ranch for Children|
|Yes, this is what our path looked like.|
|We are about to be fenced in.|
|Walking in the canyon|
|A picture-perfect day|
Looks like people got bored with this walk at some time in the past and built rock cairns. Usually, cairns mark the way when there might be confusion on which way to go. No confusion on this walk!

|Dramatic cliff scenery|
|This lichen looks like a fried egg.|

|There was much more water behind the dam!|
Well, we were definitely fenced in. Here is the gate that marked our turn-around point for the 10k walk.

After dinner, we went to see "Black Panther" in 3D. It only cost us $4.00 each for senior tickets plus $2.50 to add 3D glasses. There were only a few people in the theater.
The movie was thoroughly entertaining...4-1/2 out of five stars. It's a well-told story that moves along quickly with lots of action. My one complaint was that I couldn't understand the actors very well. I will have to rent it to see the subtitles. The women warriors of Wakanda were terrific.
I better get some sleep. We have a 10k walk in the morning and then we'll go back to our rooms to shower before the Texas Volkssport Association meeting at 1:00 p.m. Tomorrow night, we will most likely see "Red Sparrow."
Travel Bug out.
